In 1973, Dr. David Auckland, founder of Faith Baptist Church, realized God's timing and created Faith Christian Academy (FCA) and Noah's Ark Preschool and Daycare. Today, with an academic focus and a Biblical philosophy, FCA is approaching 1,000 graduates with 96 percent of those students committing to a four year University. Noah's Ark Preschool and Daycare has been growing in enrollment every year along with building a firm foundation in academics and technology in their students.
Those who have been a part of FCA and Noah's Ark Preschool and Daycare over the past 40 years recognize the passion and dedication of our teachers and administrators. Those qualities will drive our continued success in providing Christ-centered educational opportunities for generations to come.
Why Choose Noah's Ark Preschool and Daycare
Safety – At Noah's Ark, your child will enjoy a warm, loving and safe environment, and you will enjoy peace of mind. We have implemented rigorous safety and security precautions, and background clearances are required of all staff members. Many staff members hold CPR and First Aid credentials. A FCA nurse is available during school hours.
Professional and Dedicated Staff – All of our Preschool teachers hold degrees in Early Childhood Education, and some have earned Masters degrees. These credentials are enhanced by our staff's years of experience and passion for giving children a strong foundation for learning, and encouraging social development.
Curriculum and Technology – Technology enhances learning at Noah's Ark. An advanced curriculum is implemented beginning with our Toddler age group, and is enhanced by Promethean Boards, computers and iPads. Noah's Ark is one of Pennsylvania's first schools to offer "Letters Alive," an augmented reality reading curriculum for our Pre-Kindergarten students.
Partnering with Parents – Communication and partnership with parents is highly valued at Noah's Ark as we work together to guide children to their highest potential. Our teachers are always available to discuss your child's progress, and will provide you with classroom letters, reports and calendars.
Individual Attention - Students at Noah's Ark benefit from our small class sizes and individualized educational delivery. Each classroom is staffed with two teachers so that each student can benefit from personal attention.
Success after Graduation - Children who have the benefit of a Noah's Ark Preschool experience are fully ready to achieve success in Kindergarten, as evidenced by the many positive comments we have received from parents, schools and teachers. Many Educators choose Noah's Ark for their own children because they value our focus on preparing children intellectually, emotionally and socially for success in higher education.
