Noah's Ark Children's Center

Rise Above

A Ministry of Owosso First United Methodist Church

Providing quality Childcare and Preschool for children aged 2 weeks-12 years old.



Young children who go to Noah's Ark get the tools and support they need for their healthy development. All activities are carefully designed to adequately nurture the emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and physical growth of our kids. Through stimulating situations and hands-on learning opportunities, children are free to develop into bright young minds.  Age appropriate technology is used to enrich learning.  
Noah's Ark also provides quality Music Class, Story Time, and Chapel. Our playground is the best of the best; combining safety and healthy risks with plenty of opportunities to run, jump, climb, swing, ride, pretend, and explore nature with grass, gardens, trees, water play, and so much more.

Highly nutritional and diverse Breakfast, AM Snack, Lunch, and PM Snack are provided at no additional cost to all children and staff by our in house kitchen team daily (see the Forms tab for our monthly menus).
