    When The Salvation Army Day Care Centre first opened its doors in 1983, we had specific ideas in mind as to what our centre would offer each individual child. Over the years, we have watched our centre grow and attain its specific goals.

     

    Philosophy

     

    The Salvation Army Noah’s Ark Day Care is a Christian based Day Care.  Bible stories and songs are taught when appropriate to a particular theme.  Great emphasis is placed on Christmas and Easter.  We also recognize and respect the religious beliefs of those that attend our centre and encourage the parents to share with us some of their special celebrations.

     

    Although we don't have a structured program in religion, we try to help the children develop spiritual attitudes through our actions and reactions to the parents, the children and our co-workers.

    We strive to provide a safe and clean environment, one free from hazardous situations so that the children, teachers and parents feel comfortable with the centre.

     

    We strive to provide a quality program which will enhance each child’s learning, vocabulary, socialization and play skills. Through the curriculum, children are encouraged to learn and develop at their own pace.

     

    Our overall goal is that, when a child has completed his/her stay with us and is ready to leave our centre, he/she will leave us with a sense of security, independence and positive self-esteem.

    “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”  (Proverbs 22:6)
