Noah’s Ark statement

Noah’s Ark Pre-school Playgroup first opened in 1992 with a mission to deliver quality childcare delivered in a safe and friendly environment. No one could imagine this would evolve into the extremely popular and successful playgroup that is Noah’s Ark Pre-school Playgroup, today.

Our primary objective is to be a fully inclusive setting for all children, staff, parents/guardians and the community.

Our playgroup is run in the church hall, which is owned by the Holy Trinity Church situated next door, with whom we have developed a good working relationship. The playgroup is registered with OFSTED, Early Years Development and Childcare Partnership, Pre-School Learning Alliance, Criminal Records Bureau and Charities Commission.

Noah’s Ark Pre-school Playgroup aims to provide a safe and secure environment in which young children can learn through their play.

We offer a welcoming, friendly atmosphere for both parent and child and believe that forming relationships and bonds with families is vital.

The staff at Noah’s Ark are committed to providing positive role models for the children in our care and aim to instill morals, values and the skills to deal with life.

We acknowledge differences and provide for individual needs in a loving and caring environment.

Our aim is to provide experiences that challenge and enrich our children and provide them with the tools to become sociable, confident and fulfilled human beings.

We strive to incorporate all 5 stages of the Every Child Matters agenda:

  Be healthy
Stay safe
3  Enjoy and achieve
Make a positive contribution
Achieve economic well-being
