I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I have bee very pleased with my experience Noah's Ark. My son cried the first few times I picked him up because he did not want to leave his friends. He always comes home with 4 or 5 crafts that he has done throughout the day. And they have really helped him work on his potty-training as a 3 year-old. I love his teacher, and she is always very good with him. I have noticed that over the months Gabe has improved in his tracing of his his name, and coloring in the lines on his pictures. They have been a very good fit for our family.

They have alot of staff/teacher's that have little to zero training in early child education. If your child is not a honor student your child will be miserable there. They provide zero intervention programs. At best they are a day care NOT a pre school with qualified administration or teacher's. They are ran by members of their church. Some teacher's there have zero experience as parents or educators. Head scratcher. Do your homework on them. Their preacher was stealing money from the Christians that tithe their, he has since been fired or resigned, big cover up.

Noah's Ark is a clean, well-organized daycare that provides plentiful activities and opportunities for children to learn and grow. I would give the center 4 stars for the care they provide for nursery age through Toddler. The teachers are caring and nurturing, and the parent-teacher communication is good.

I would give the center 2 stars for the care they provide once the children hit Preschool level. The classes are large and the parent-school communication drops off significantly as a result, unfortunately to the detriment of the child should issues arise. The children are understandably expected to do more for themselves at Preschool age, but it is a difficult transition for some children and the center is not staffed to help ease the transition for children who are having difficulty with it.

Noah's Ark seems to do well providing care for average children. They are unfortunately not well equipped to deal with children who have special needs--behavioral, learning disabilities, giftedness, etc. If your child has special needs, I strongly recommend searching for a childcare facility that is more focused on dealing with a more diverse population of learners.

So in light of the separate 2 and 4 star ratings, I have given a 3 star rating overall.

This Preschool amazes me every day.  They are focused on continuous improvement.  My children love being there.  The staff and teachers communicate openly with the parents, and they strive to ensure the children are learning at a rate that will prepare them for entering kindergarten.  The schoolagers summer program is the best I have reviewed compared to other preschool/daycare centers.  They plan daily activities to keep the older children engaged and happy.
