Noah's Ark is a full-scale childcare program committed to providing a safe, healthy, and Christian environment where children can grow spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually. Our professional teachers model biblical Christian principles and provide stimulating curriculum and activities. We provide care for children age six weeks to six-years-old. Before and after school care for children who attend kindergarten is available, although we do not provide transportation. We care for approximately 175 children and we are housed in ZPC's education wing. Our hours are Monday-Friday from 7 am to 6 pm.

Curriculum and Activities

  • We use a wonderful curriculum from A Beka Book Company. This material enables us to provide a foundation in basic learning skills and values that parents hope to instill in their children.
  • Breakfast, morning snack, a hot lunch, and afternoon snack are provided.
  • Outside play is important for healthy growth and development, so if the weather is dry and 30+ degrees, we bundle up and hit the ground running! We have three playgrounds, each tailored to a different age range. During the summer we plan field trips (ages 3+), bike days, and everyone's favorite, splash day!
  • If it isn't reasonable to be outside, each class is given the opportunity to play in the gym. There are balls, hoops, bikes, parachutes, and infinite relays to be run!


Noah’s Ark Kindergarten offers a well-rounded day that includes math, language arts, intense phonics, writing, physical activity, Bible stories, and special classes on art, music, cooking, library time, and show and share. Our curriculum is Saxson Phonics and Spelling K and Saxson Math K. The Saxson curriculum is a success-oriented program that enables children to develop a solid foundation in phonics and thus become successful readers and spellers. The math curriculum introduces new concepts through hands-on activities and rich mathematical conversations that actively engage students in the learning process. Your child will learn through discussions, explorations, and oral/written practice.

Noah's Ark is a ministry of Zionsville Presbyterian Church. Our goals are to provide experiences where the love of God is expressed through learning, music, prayer, and conversation and to grow and serve one another in Christ. No attempt will be intentionally made to prejudice a child against the church preference or faith of his/her or parents.

Noah’s Ark is registered with the Indiana State Board of Health and the Indiana State Fire Marshall's offices. This registration means that we comply with State laws and regulations concerning health, nutrition, sanitation, and fire prevention.

Noah’s Ark is not a "baby-sitting" service or "play school."  Each day is designed to provide constructive learning experiences through planned activity and individual instruction. The activities include creative expression through art and music appreciation, simple nature experiments, time for social interaction ranging from group participation to one-on-one conversation, as well as indoor and outdoor play.  This is a proven formula for the development of inquisitive young minds and the growth of healthy bodies.

Another segment of your child’s daily program introduces the child to the "whys" of such things as health and safety.  We also assist them in learning appropriate social behavior commonly referred to as “manners.”  A solid foundation for future learning is laid at Noah’s Ark through the use of phonics, reading and writing, an understanding of numbers and their practical application to daily life and importance of "science" in the immediate world of a child are all explored at your child’s level of maturity and comprehension.

The goal of discipline at NACCC/P is to help a child establish and develop self-control. Child training and discipline are handled with kindness and understanding and in accordance with Christian principles as set forth in the Bible. Children are informed of inappropriate behavior and what is expected.  Disciplinary problems will be addressed with parents and documented in the child’s file.  The rules for proper classroom behavior are appropriate for each age group. Both the rules and the consequences for breaking them are carefully explained to each child, and the class goes over them often.
