Philosophy

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.

 

The Center Of A Balanced Program- Interest Centers

Room arrangement is more than just aesthetics. The way the room is laid out affects how your child feels about himself, how he relates to the adults and children around him and how comfortable he feels about playing and exploring. The environment within a classroom also strongly influences a teacher’s ability to carry out an effective program throughout the day. At Noah‘s Ark, we understand that your child learns best in an age-appropriate environment built to meet his needs. And we know that there are specific ways to arrange a room to support and encourage a child to explore. We invite you to visit and get a firsthand look at our spaces. To experience for yourself how each age-specific classroom creates a sense of safety, security and stimulation and to see how our teachers keep your child’s room clean, attractive and comfortable.

In our Interest Centers children work cooperatively in small groups to reach developmental milestones and school readiness through exploring, experimenting, and repetition.
