"The Ark Nursery provides children with superb opportunities for their learning and development as well as promoting excellent welfare provision; there are tremendous relationships between staff and children." (Ofsted Report, April 2014.)
The Ark is an Ofsted Outstanding Day Nursery and Forest School. We have two nurseries in Stamford in Lincolnshire, both on school sites, and our own Forest School with a privately-owned wood, three-acre meadow and river where our children have a unique opportunity to explore and experience the outdoors.
The Ark Day Nursery combines the latest findings in Early Years practice with the theories of educationalists such as Steiner, Froebel and Montessori that chime with owner and founder Jo’s own experiences of growing up and learning about the outdoors on a farm in Lincolnshire.
Our highly qualified and passionate team are dedicated to helping all our children thrive, enquire and learn in a caring and stimulating environment that gives them the good start they need to progress through their early years.
