Noah's Ark Preschool Vision and Mission
Building Foundations for a Successful Future
Equip children with confidence and compassion
Engage children through play and community
Empower Children to think and explore
Embrace children as God’s creation
We believe in relationships, by facilitating children’s interactions with each other and adults, as needed. Teaching staff appreciates each child with individual personalities, needs, and strengths, encouraging parents to build friendships with other parents at Noah’s Ark—these may continue for years to come.
In personal faith, we respect each family’s beliefs while sharing the love of Jesus Christ through example and stories.
In safety, we provide a physically safe environment for the children and create an environment that supports experimentation, questions, success, and failure—one in which children trust they are loved for who they are, not for what they do.
In appropriate and quality education, we intentionally plan environments to support the children’s development, meeting them at their level. We use play-filled opportunities for exploration, challenges, and self-discovery and pay attention to differentiating the learning to individual children.
In family, we connect with families using multiple tools of communication. We learn about family and friends to help support needs and offer tips for smoother transitions. We create opportunities for family “wins” that are positive and relationship strengthening.

We model and teach children basic Christian values by providing opportunities to practice social skills of making and keeping friends, communicating with peers and adults, taking turns with toys and activities, and being special helpers.
We give children experiences to help expand their knowledge and make connections with new concepts and discoveries in a safe, loving environment. Children are encouraged to explore possibilities, question their theories, and discover the world around them.
Families gain a foundation of positive educational experiences, partnering in the education of their young children. Together we make the best first educational experiences for children that last a lifetime.
St. John’s Lutheran Church is a supportive home for Noah’s Ark and welcomes all families to be a part of the congregation, putting their faith into action.
