We are so glad to be back at Preschool and having all the children here everyday! The classes are settling in and their are a few openings in a few classes to welcome new friends. Call the preschool office for more information.
Noah’s ark Preschool is closed for the summer, however the office is checked on a regular basis. Please leave a voice mail, email, or letter with the office and we will contact as soon as we are able. There are a few openings for the preschool year 2013- 2014 and waiting lists for those classes that are full.
Be sure to enjoy your summer, read to your children, and stay safe.
ONE: Don’t miss the boat.
TWO: Remember that we are all in the same boat!
THREE: Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark ..
FOUR: Stay fit. When you’re 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
FIVE: Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
SIX: Build your future on high ground.
SEVEN: For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
EIGHT: Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
NINE: When you’re stressed, float awhile.
TEN: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
ELEVEN: No matter the storm, when you are with Peace and tranquility, there’s always a rainbow waiting.

All orders are mailed directly to your home!
NAEYC has built a website with research based information for families. Check it out!!
Apparently the stores did not notify me that they would no longer carry the UHU glue sticks. I will purchase s supply of them through Amazon and families can “donate” at Open House toward the purchase if you choose.
Announcement from NAEYC:
Congratulations! Your program has achieved accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young
Children. The administration, teaching staff, and families of Noah’s Ark Preschool are all to be congratulated for earning
the mark of quality represented by the NAEYC Accreditation system. On behalf of NAEYC, and specifically the NAEYC
Academy for Early Childhood
Program Accreditation, I commend your program’s outstanding efforts in pursuing NAEYC
Thanks to the families of Noah’s Ark Preschool who have been so supportive while the staff was diligent in reaching the high standards of NAEYC.
Noah’s Ark Preschool’s Candidacy has been officially accepted by NAEYC. Meaning we move on to the last step of the process. We will now wait for a visit by an assessor from NAEYC, who will assess our preschool, staff, portfolios, surveys, and so much more.
Please pray for patience and strength as the staff continues to tidy up our processes and procedures. Each age level has created a portfolio with evidence of meeting the highest standards of early childhood education and care. Feel free to view them at the preschool.
Valentine‘s Day was an eventful day in my life. After tightness in my chest, arms, and jaw, I underwent an angiogram at 41 years old. Luckily my test was clear of blockage and narrowing, Prasie Gad! With an official mild heart attack behind me I am looking forward to cardiac rehab, new medications, a healthier diet, and less stress (that will be the hardest one).
I am blessed with so many thoughtful families and friends. Calls, cards, flowers, and dinner, all so generous and kind. My family appreciates your support in the past crazy week.
Now to look forward and get back to the classroom with the 3 year olds. They renew my heart everyday.
