Learning In A Christian Environment

Noah’s Ark Preschool provides a loving Christian atmosphere where children can grow socially, emotionally, cognitively, physically, and spiritually. We provide a hands-on learning environment for children ages three, four, and five, rich in experiences, discovery, and exploration.

We believe the partnership between parents and teachers is key to give children the best possible learning experience. Parent activities include assisting in the classroom (through special activities and/or reading time), Spring Parent/Teacher conferences, field trips, educational speakers, parent/toddler play group, children’s music programs, and various volunteer opportunities to assist with our additional programs, such as; Scholastic book orders, event set-up and clean-up, t-shirt sales, fundraisers, ministry team, art activities and prep, and our annual Mom2Mom sale.
