Higher in Christ, Deeper in Faith, Wider in Love


Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

What is Noah’s Ark?
The Noah’s Ark Ministry is an educationally stimulating Christian preschool program.  Our Program will encourage play, exploration, and learning to advance physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development and encourage creative abilities, and preparing for kindergarten.  We will use the learning center approach with Christian values to meet our goals.  We also take various field trips  to further enhance these goals.

Director: Stephanie Hoel
Classes are from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays

The calendar year will normally coincide with the Elwood public school system, with the following exception:  when the public schools are on a time delay (1-2 hours), we will meet from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  When Elwood is closed, we are closed.

General Information

Noah’s Ark is a program that encourages parent involvement.  You are welcome in the classroom at any time!  We rely on some parental help for field trips and other programs.  Snacks are served every day.  A prayer is said before we eat.  We celebrate birthdays by featuring your child as a Special Person of the Day.  The Pre-K program is for ages 3-5.
