About us

Noah's Ark Playgroup is a pre-school playgroup, which was established in September 1992. The playgroup is registered with The Southern Health and Social Care Trust and is a member of Early Years, the organization for young children.

Our staff members are fully vetted, qualified and experienced. All staff receive relevant training in Child Protection, First Aid, Food Hygiene, etc. and training is updated regularly.

Noah's Ark is also registered with Craigavon Borough Council Environmental Health Department and has been awarded with a Food Hygiene Rating of 5 – Very Good. We provide a healthy snack each day, consisting of toast or cereal, fruit and milk or water.

The playgroup is registered to take up to 22 children per session. Sessions run term time, Monday to Friday, from 9.15 a.m. to 12.15 p.m. and cost £11 each morning (reduced to £9 per session if attending 5 days per week). Children must be toilet trained and aged between 2 years 10 months and school age to attend.

Open days are held in May when prospective children and their parents will be invited to view the playgroup and meet the staff. Enrolment forms and information about the playgroup will be available at that time. Parents should contact the Playgroup directly to express interest in a place for their child.

At Noah's Ark, we want every parent and child to feel welcome at all times and we believe that the friendly atmosphere will make you feel at home, from the moment you first step over the door. We trust that each and every child will enjoy their voyage of fun and discovery aboard Noah's Ark!
