School-Age Children

As children get older and more independent, they need new challenges. That’s why Noah's Ark Childcare offers Before & After School care that address the changing and more varied needs of growing school-age children.
 We provide a unique before- and after-school learning experience to keep your school-ager motivated and focused in a fun and stimulating environment.

Most school-age children seek to develop a sense of self – a sense of who they are, what they can do, and how they are perceived by others.We take into account the differing needs of school-age children ranging in age from five to 12 years old to ensure they successfully find their place in an increasingly complex world.

To make it easy for your family's schedule, Marshall County School system provides transportation to and from our center. Our school-age program also aligns with school calendars to provide fun and learning during holidays, teacher in-service days, and other school breaks.

 

Your Child’s Day
 

Children spend time with friends and enjoy activities that are relevant to school-age interests. We help children think, feel, and experience new challenges.

In our programs, school-age children will develop complex coordination skills, engage with peers, and practice group study. They will begin to express their goals and wishes as they seek self-identity and explore interests and behaviors in an age-appropriate way.

With before- and after-school programs at Noah's Ark will gain success toward social, emotional, physical, and intellectual maturity.
