Ark of Learning
Our mission is to be a quality educational center
that makes a loving difference in the lives of young children and their families.
a ministry of Mt. Moriah UMC since 1964.
We enroll children ages 3 (potty trained) through 11.
Hours of Operation: 6:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Monday through Friday
Everyone in the building participates in
the preschool program from 9:15a.m. -12 noon.
We learn through play here. Every week we offer Music and Spanish and a program comes to us (Stretch N Grow) helping children learn healthy eating choices and where they get to exercise to music. Nutritious snacks and lunches follow USDA Nutritional Guidelines. In addition, singing songs about God and Jesus and telling Bible stories, though not a curriculum component, is very important to each day. Every classroom is part of the church, so there are often posters and decorations in Sunday School rooms. We do say grace before meals and snacks, and classes often include or begin with prayer. At our Christmas program, our children act out the Christmas story of Christ birth.
Our Summer Program is phenomenally active, with many field trips into the community providing students with the chance to have fun AND learn. A few of the field trips we have participated in include the zoo, the aquarium, the museum center, touring the Eastgate Chick-Fil-A and a visit to the Ronald McDonald house to donate the collected popcan tabs given to us by many friends, families and from the church and community. Many opportunities are also found on campus when in addition to the everyday, we invite guests in to share with the children.
We are proud to be a one star
center in the "Step Up To Quality" 3 star program.
