Our Mission
Our mission at Noah's Ark is to provide a warm, healthy, caring environment and to provide experiences for growth - socially, physically, emotionally, and cognitively. We provide children with a range of experiences to develop a sense of accomplishment and self-esteem and to observe, experiment, discover, and think within the folds of an encouraging environment.

Our curriculum allows for the uniqueness of each child. We realize that children progress through their developmental stages at different rates. At Noah's Ark, children are encouraged to progress at their own pace. We respect each child's abilities and provide them with a variety of experiences to help them reach their potential.

Noah's Ark strives to be an extension of the family unit. Our staff work with each family to provide children a home-like atmosphere where they feel safe, secure, and comfortable. 

Noah's Ark is licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. You may check out past inspection reports at

Noah's Ark is also a Step Up To Quality Star Rated facility. Come in and see why!!
