WHAT MAKES NOAH’S ARC CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTER SO SPECIAL?
We believe that the greatest way to learn inclusion, compassion, empathy, and responsibility is to work, grow, and learn together. Our program integrates typical children with those who have disABILITIES.
In our highly structured, high-quality learning environment, every child has given the springboard from which they will lead lives that better their communities and the world.
We work with children ages six weeks to five years old (pre-K), providing an exceptionally low child-to-teacher ratio. Every one of our lead teachers has obtained degrees or achieved their Certified Child Development Associate Certification. And our entire staff completes ongoing training to continually enhance skills and remain knowledgeable about new advancements in childcare.
Noah’s ARC offers full- and part-time enrollment, before- and aftercare and, perhaps most importantly of all, a warm, loving, accepting atmosphere that fosters the ability and willingness to learn.
Noah’s ARC is a Type III child development center that serves both typical children and those with developmental delays and/or disABILITIES. Our curriculum is approved by the Louisiana Department of Education and is appropriate for infants, toddlers, pre-K, and summer programs.
We focus on the entire child instead of only academic success. Our classrooms provide opportunities for home living, library, manipulatives, art, science, and math. Our music and movement activities marry physical fitness with the benefits of music education. The ultimate goal? To prepare our children for school.
To do so, we first partner with our parents. Working hand-in-hand, we educate parents on their child’s developmental stages, provide support and even develop parent-child take-home activities to supplement in-school learning. We also keep parents well abreast of Noah’s ARC’s varied and rich programming.
Take those music and movement classes, for example. Our trained staff leverages that to which children are naturally drawn—songs, dances, and rhymes—to help them experience the creative process, explore feelings and self-expression, develop their listening skills and embrace positive mechanisms to release emotions. We also use music and movement exercises to increase opportunities for positive social interactions outside of our walls: at home and around the community.
And what about our summer program? Packed with unique and fun activities (petting zoo, splash and sprinkler, pony rides, soccer tots, guest presentations and so much more!), Noah’s ARC proves to be a year-round asset to every family in our community.
