Personal Attention Moves Your Child In the Right Direction
Toddlers gravitate towards things they like and are sure to let us know what they don’t like. Our caring and observant teachers develop a special relationship with your child, encouraging them towards their interests, and gently helping them with the next natural step in their learning.
A Clean, Serene Classroom Means Your Child Can Relax
Our teachers sweep floors, wipe down surfaces, and sterilize toys throughout the day so that your child has a fresh start for each activity. A cleaning service deep cleans the school at the end of each week to keep the classrooms immaculate. A clean, tidy, serene setting makes it easier for your child to feel comfortable and relaxed and ready to learn.
Healthy, home-made meals prepared fresh every day
Breakfast, lunch, and snacks are prepared on-site, in a nut-free environment, by our in-house chef each day. Our wholesome meals are provided as part of the USDA’s CACFP food program, ensuring your child gets fresh, nutritious food to fuel them for a fun-filled day.
Plenty of room to move
and play for fantastic
new physical skills
When they are not running around outside, our toddlers can enjoy the large indoor play area to practice new skills like climbing and jumping. Our little gym has a mini treadmill, stationary bike, and pull up bar for fun, vigorous exercise, and yoga is practiced daily for more calm and focus.
Practicing Manners and
Kindness to Build
Empathy and Compassion
Your child is now learning to give thanks and to use kind words and actions. Our teachers model compassion and love for each of our students, and each other, so that they can learn to be loving and compassionate members of our community as well.
Activities to Develop Coordination, Creativity, Listening skills, And More
Toddlers learn by playing, so our teachers give them plenty of unstructured playtimes. Our toddler curriculum is hands-on and incorporates the best of Montessori and STEAM to provide more fun, directed activities, like painting or following dance steps to a song.
Safe and Fun
Outdoor Play Every Day
Toddlers need lots of space to try out their new physical skills like running, spinning, jumping, and climbing. Little ones can even learn to peddle on our outdoor bike path, and our expansive playground accommodates your child in our separate toddler area.
Know What Your Child Is Up To throughout the Day
Partnering with parents is essential for each child to get the care they need. Our communication app, Brightwheel, provides you with daily reports, pictures, and videos, at your fingertips.
Our doors are always
open to parents
We encourage you to visit or meet with us for any concerns about your child. Partnering with parents is the best way for us to fulfill your family’s needs. Also available to you is our Lending Library, where you can borrow books to read to your child at home, and our Parent Resource area, providing you with information about parenting strategies and our many community events.
The Ark provides a wonderful environment for your child to learn, grow, and socialize. Each day The Ark focuses on your child’s safety, wellbeing, growth, and development. The teachers are very caring and provide an excellent level of care to each child. The classroom structure focuses on your child’s age group but also takes into consideration each child’s individual level of development. My son has attended The Ark for over 2 1/2 years and he loves all the teachers, the activities, reading at story time, and most of all the playground. I highly recommend The Ark as your child care provider.
Our boys, Anthony and Zachary, have been with The Ark since they were just 2 months old; now Anthony is almost 5 (just graduated preschool at The Ark) and Zach almost 2. The staff is wonderful and has truly become a part of our family over the last 5 years. Our boys love everyone there so much. The Ark does many things throughout the year for fun and the boys always participate. They are always cognizant that every child is different and are wonderful with their development. They always keep my wife Jennifer and I current on the newest news with The Ark and with the development both educationally and emotionally of our boys. We really believe that children are the most important part of people’s lives and The Ark certainly believes that as well. The staff loves all of the children and shows it through care and affection. My wife Jennifer and I can without hesitation recommend The Ark for your children; you won’t regret it.
At The Ark Christian Nursery and Learning Center, families can be confident that their children are well cared for while still having fun. The sense of security felt when leaving our daughter at The Ark is greatly appreciated. Our three year old is learning so much and is eager to share her day with us, when she is picked up. We are always pleased with the feedback from her learning experiences. The location, curriculum, friendly staff and cleanliness of the facility have kept us with The Ark since our daughter was five months old. We have recommended The Ark to coworkers and friends. We would tell anyone who is interested to visit and they will see for themselves what a great place The Ark is. We are so thankful to be able to leave our daughter in a Christian environment with loving teachers while working.
My boys go to the Ark and they love it here! The teachers are great and they learn so much. I’ve seen such an improvement in BOTH of my boys in the 5 months they’ve been going here. My oldest is 4 and he wakes up every morning excited to go to “school”. I would recommend this daycare to anyone looking for child care. And I wouldn’t take my kids anywhere else! My kids are in GREAT HANDS!
My daughter loves going here! She has been since 2015 and absolutely LOVES her teachers. They are very understanding with your schedule and are easy to work with. They work with an app called brightwheel to help engage you in what they are doing in the classroom on a day-to-day basis. They can send pictures and updates of your child. You are also able to message your child’s teacher with any questions, comments, or concerns, making it easier to communicate with one another! With the help of The Ark for the past 4 years, I believe it is going to be in easy transition for our child going into kindergarten in August 😊
The Ark Learning Center has an amazing educational program! They track all the developmental stages along your child’s growth, they provide many services allowing open contact between parents and teachers and allow you to see your child’s daily accomplishments and events that happen. They have a wonderful comunication system allowing parents to frequently ask questions, make comments or just checking in as the day goes on through the Brightwheel app linked to your child! I highly recommend The Ark Learning Center as a place for your child to grow, learn, play and succeed everyday and help them grow into an eager to learn and prepared kindergartener when the time comes! I currently have my daughter in this center, have been consistent for over a year and plan to continue her education through their program for the next few years until kindergarten! She has had many teachers along the way but Ms. Lori, Mr. Ben, Ms. Mayla, Ms. Kaitlin and Ms. Shantel are the ones who spend time with her the most throughout her time at the Ark and they are all amazing! They love her so much and always make sure she gets what she needs and they are great at letting me know when something is needed or if something seems wrong. I highly recommend The Ark Leanring Center for so many reasons I can’t type them all!
