I love this center. My son has been at Noah's Ark for 10 months now. There are huge differences between Noah's Ark and the center he was enrolled in before. Noah's Ark seems to be more of a learning Center than just a place that provides individuals to watch over your kids. They have curriculums for the kids no matter what age group. My son is two years old and is very advanced. I love the way they teach the kids to be independent. They have meal time and each kid sits at their chair, they wash their hands after lunch and throw their papertowels away themselves. They are taught to say Please and Thank you. Just refreshing to know that I could send my child to a place where I know he will be well taken care of and will be learning new things everyday. I highly recommend Noah's Ark. And the reason the director does not return calls is not becasue she is rude. It's simply because Noah's Ark is in high demand. There are many many people trying to enroll their kids in this center. I was very fortunate that I was able to get in at the time that I did. The staff there is amazing!

Having read some of the reviews , and an employee at Noahs Ark for 17 years(most staff have been here at least 10 years) and have had a child of my own at the school with another one on his way. I* strongly disagree with the turnover rate. We are very proud of our stability at the Ark. As far as allergies, Susan the Director, has been nothing but very sensitive to each and every child and their unique situation. Noahs ark is a warm, and caring program. highly recommend

First impression - I am definitely not impressed.

I called there to try to set up an appointment with Susan, the Director. I told her when I would be in the area, and that I hoped to stop by around that time give or take a couple hours. You would figure that in this economy if someone calls to say "Hi, I am considering giving you business" the person would be at least slightly receptive. Not so with this Susan lady. She called back the day AFTER I said I would be in the area. How professional.

The funny thing is, Susan (the Director) had done the same thing to several other people I know. My friend warned me that she doesn't call back, but I thought maybe it was just a fluke (who is really that rude to prospective clients?) But it wasn't.

Sorry but when the Director of a childcare center can't find time in a 24+ hour period to return my phone call, I figure the decision is made for me - no thanks!

My daughter has been at Noah's Ark for about 6 months now - and one of the first days there was an open house. I found that by in large (I'd guess 90-95%) of the staff had been with the day care for over 5 years! Many of the teachers over 10! Nothing is perfect - Noah's Ark is absolutely close!! The teachers seem to really care about what they do - and my daughter has truly learned so much there already! I'm a big fan (obviously).

When I went to Noah's, about 17 years ago, when they were in east hampton.. they were a good daycare. I still have really good memories of that place!

The only thing that I like about this childcare facility is that it has a fenced in area so that the kids can run around and play outside when the New England weather permits it. I did not like the fact that every couple of weeks there were new faces that I had to be introduced to.

Great for kids, although the staff turnover rate is really high. Have had issues in past with allergies and not handling situations regarding food allergies sensitively with several families. They have a fenced in outdoor play area and an indoor playground for both the infants/toddlers and the bigger kids. Not something you find at every center!

Message from Educational Playcare

It has been our privilege to provide childcare services to thousands of families in Connecticut. In fact, some of our previous students have come back to work for us and help nurture the next generation!

More about Educational Playcare

Today, the importance of positive childhood experiences, starting from infancy, and their relation to future success in life is universally understood. It wasn't so when we began in 1986. When we originally selected the name "Educational Playcare", it was because of our understanding of the importance of play in order for learning to take place. We also knew the importance of providing a nurturing, secure, joyful and stimulating environment. Children learn best through direct experience. We believe that this direct experience is best gained through play, for play is the work of children. It is through play that children develop concepts about themselves and the world around them. Our goal is to provide the ideal environment to support the "work" of children.
