Nursery

Noah’s Ark Day Care offers two nursery rooms, Nursery 1 & Nursery 2.

We currently have a few open spots in Nursery 1 (6 weeks – 6 months). 

Nursery 1

Ages: Six weeks – six months

Milestones:

In Nursery 1, we will work with your child to accomplish the following milestones:

  • When on stomach, baby should hold head erect and raise body
  • Hold toys
  • Control head well
  • Reach for and bat at objects
  • Rolls from front to back
  • Babbles and coos
  • Smiles, laughs and squeals
  • Responds to name
Daily Schedule:

Noah’s Ark offers infant care for ages six weeks to six months. When enrolling your child, we ask that you provide the caregivers with a daily routine. This should include bottle amounts and times, whether or not your child uses a pacifier, nap schedules, preferred sleeping positions and any other information that you would like for the caregivers to know. Caregivers will follow this schedule as well as observe your baby’s behavior for needed changes.

Nursery 2

Ages: Six months – twelve months

Milestones:

Our Nursery 2 program is for children 6 – 12 months who have already accomplished the milestones for Nursery 1. Milestones which we will work with your child to achieve are:

  • Able to sit alone
  • Transfer objects from one hand to the other
  • Bring toys to mouth
  • Trying to stand
  • Respond to their own name
  • Scoot, creep and try to crawl
  • Picks things up with pincer grasp (thumb and finger)
  • Walking and talking
Daily Schedule:

More structured than Nursery 1, children have scheduled nap times from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and afternoon naps from 12:45 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. They have scheduled lunch time at 11 a.m. This small portion of structure builds familiarity and comfort for the children.
