Noah’s Ark Preschool

Enrollment has started for Fall 2017!

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.  The older children will be preparing for kindergarten.  We will use the learning center approach with Christian values to meet our goals.  We also take various field trips (particularly with the 4- and 5-year-old classes) to further enhance these goals.

Director: Stephanie Hoel


Classes are from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.:

Tuesdays and Thursdays for 3-year-olds

Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for ages 4 and 5.

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.
