All About Noah's Ark....

The aim of Noah’s Ark has always been to give each child a wide range of educational and social experiences without discrimination.

Noah’s Ark was set up in September 1991 by the Baptist church and a group of mums who wanted to serve the community. The group first opened with six children who attended 3 mornings a week. The reputation of the group grew and now over 20 years later we are a highly regarded preschool, still based in the large secure premises of the Baptist Church. The buildings and staff have changed over the years but we pride ourselves on still offering high quality childcare and early education.

The playgroup became a registered charity in its own right in January 2010 and in October 2012 changed its name from Noah’s Ark Playgroup to Noah’s Ark Preschool.

The preschool has a fantastic staff team who between them have a great deal of experience and qualifications. Our current staff team consists of:

Wendy - Manager, Level 4 qualified in Management & Deputy Safeguarding Officer

Suzie - Preschool Leader Qualified Primary Teacher

Laura - Deputy Preschool Leader, Level 3 qualified

Sharon - Senior EYFS Practitioner, Level 3 qualified

Tina - EYFS Practitioner, NNEB qualified

Yvonne - EYFS Practitioner, Level 3 qualified

Tiffany – EYFS Practitioner  - Level 3 Early Years Educator

Becky – Administration Assistant, provides cover when needed

Links with Primary Schools

As a preschool, we maintain close links with the local schools. The foundation teachers visit us prior to your children starting school. As part of the “Culm Valley Pre-School Liaison Group”, we meet regularly with the schools in the area to ensure continuity of care and that the transition to school is made as easy as possible.

Starting Preschool

Children can start at Noah’s Ark the term after their 2nd birthday, although this is not covered by the Early Years entitlement funding (see Current opening times and Fees) During the ½ term before your child is due to start preschool, we will invite you to visit us with your child so that both of you can experience a preschool session. Details about the best ways of settling your child into Preschool can be discussed with a member of staff at this session.  Some children may be eligible to receive 2 year old funding, known as 2gether funding.  More information on this is available from:

Links with the Church

The Preschool is based in the School Rooms at the Cullompton Baptist Church and we are well supported by the church – both by volunteer helpers and committee members.
We welcome families of all religions and cultures.

At the end of the Autumn and Summer terms we hold a short concert in the Church - which is sensitive to the Christian Faith, for the children to take part in
