General School Mission

"THE PURPOSE of Noah's Ark is to provide an environment for preschool children which aims to develop some skill in relating to others, to develop a healthy concept of self and to find joy in creativity. Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing and recreational experience that is enjoyable for those attending at a reasonable cost and gives parents peace of mind. Children who attend will have the opportunity to play and interact with other children and adults.
To work with children in developing skills for later, more formalized schooling.
To meet basic physical needs of child (food, rest, and love) through snack times, rest periods, warm atmosphere in the center and a feeling of warmth and love from the staff.
To meet social needs of child through attention to happy relationships with other children.
To assist children to carry out simple instructions and directions.
To develop muscular control through games, exercise, play equipment, etc.
To develop a more lengthened attention span through games, stories, and music.
To provide a sense of security for child through love and discipline.
To acquaint each child with a sense of God's love and care through prayer, puppet shows, and actions (attitudes as well) of our staff.
