About Us

From the director:
I would like to tell you a little bit about Noah's Ark Nursery School. I
believe that preschool is not a substitute for the home, nor the
teachers for the parents. Rather I do believe that to complement the
home and family, we can offer a group experience to help your child
toward discovery, understanding, and competence with a good
balance of self-awareness and social development. We strive for
professional competence regarding teaching, equipment, and
Although we are not a "co-op" nursery school, we welcome parents'  
We also offer several occasions when parents have the option of
participating. For example, during "Parent Helper Week", a parent
may join us for all or part of the morning, helping out with activities.
Also, being a field-trip chaperone is a great way to become familiar
with your child's classmates.
Please feel free to call me, if you have any questions or comments.

Diane Melanson, Director
