Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

From the Director:

Here at Noah’s Ark your child will be cared for by our nurturing and experienced staff who have a true gift with children. We create a partnership with our parents to assure both you and your child’s needs are met. Noah’s Ark Philosophy is based on three principal goals. These are to help children gain confidence, to impart a strong sense of community and to foster a true love of learning. We provide a warm consistent environment where our children are encouraged to explore, make choices and gain independence. We instill a strong sense of self and a discovery of each child’s unique place in the world we live in.
