About Us

Noah’s Ark Community Preschool is an independent, non-profit, non-denominational, co-educational preschool committed to excellence. It is the philosophy of this institution that early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploration, and discovery.  Our mission is to help each student develop their abilities and to build character. The Christian-based education they receive is designed to develop and challenge the growth of each student intellectually, physically, emotionally, socially, and morally.
