Based in Plymouth and Torbay, Noah's Ark Childcare Centres provide outstanding nursery care.

Enjoy Learning

We believe strongly that childcare shouldn't just be about filling time for the children; it's a great opportunity for them to be learning as well.

Try our Activities

At Noah's Ark we believe in fun and variety. Sometimes we plan quiet activities like story time, and other times there's lots of noise and activity with singing and dancing.

"I am incredibly happy with the nursery. Alex is so happy about attending nursery and is really sad when he has to leave. The free flow play is really good and I know my child and others enjoy it. I know the Noah’s Ark group has grown but I would recommend anyone to bring their children here."
