How do we discipline?

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.

Who are we?

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.
