Frequently Asked Questions

What ages does Noah’s take?
6 weeks to 8 years

Does Noah’s offer part time childcare?
We offer 2 or 3 full days per week but we do not split days between mornings or afternoons

How long is your waiting list?
At this time, we are accepting enrollment of children for full-time care starting in June 2018. If you are looking for part-time care (2 or 3 days per week) and have a flexible schedule, we encourage you to contact us as we may be able to accommodate your child at a sooner date.

How do I get on the waiting list?
To hold a spot for your child a non-refundable deposit is required. An $80 Annual Family Registration Fee plus the first week’s tuition is required to hold your spot.

Do you have tours?
Of course! Not only do we encourage parents or parents-to-be to drop by anytime the Center is open, we recommend it. In our opinion, if a child care center forces you to schedule a tour, you will not get an accurate picture of the “daily life!” Stop by anytime or multiple times and feel free to bring your family members along. We look forward to meeting you and showing you “the Ark in the Park.”

Is the deposit refundable?
No, the deposit is non-refundable

Do you offer a sibling discount?
Absolutely. We have many families that have multiple children attending our center. For one sibling, we offer a 10% discount off the 2nd child. For two siblings, we offer a 10% discount off the 2nd child and a 15% discount off the 3rd child.

What is included in your tuition?
We serve morning and afternoon snacks and catered lunch, prepared according to USDA guidelines. We also provide infant formula, infant cereal and Gerber baby food should parents wish to take advantage of that option. We serve whole milk to children under 2, fat free milk to children over 2 and 100% fruit juice. We provide baby wipes in the infant and toddler rooms. Most importantly, we are proud to say that our staff-to-Child ratios exceed State Licensing requirements.
