Our Philosophy

Think. Reason. Question. Experiment. These are just a few of the skills and qualities that children will develop at Noah’s Ark Child Development Center. Since our founding, we’ve focused on supporting kids during all transitions throughout childhood.


All activities are designed to adequately nurture the emotional and intellectual growth of our kids. Through stimulating situations and hands-on learning opportunities, young children are free to develop into bright young minds. Reach out to learn more, and enroll with us today!


WE ARE ALL IN(clusive)!

While diversity may include different faiths, orientation, gender roles, socioeconomic status, and ethnicity it is not limited to just these areas.  We believe that diversity also includes the different physical, cognitive, and social abilities that one possesses.  We strive to create a developmentally appropriate classroom environment that not only reflects each child’s unique abilities, but also encompasses their home culture and experiences as well. One of the most important things that we can do to teach our children about diversity is by role modeling that all people are treated with kindness and respect. 


We use an app called Procare Connect to connect with and communicate daily with parents. Parents will be invited via email and cell phone number. You will get a code sent to your phone and or email.
