I started working for Noah's Ark in May 2012. The help that they have given me in getting my CDA and the quality of child care far surpasses others in the area. The families are amazing and staff are truly amazing individuals. This facility is more than just a place to drop your kid off for the day, it's a second home and family. I can't wait to see what the years bring.

Noah’s Ark is not just a child care center it is an essential part of the community. I was truly touched by the generous donations they helped my family receive, everything from food to clothing and school supplies. Their motto that they do not just enroll the child they enroll the family is true on every level. They strive to assist every family not only in childcare but in everyday life.
