The Ark has two day nurseries in the heart of Stamford, Lincolnshire - both next door to Primary School sites - and its own Forest School.The Ark on Foundry Road is the only nursery in the area to have been awarded 'Outstanding' in its last two inspections; while our brand-new, architect designed Ark on Kesteven Road offers full-day care, term-time only provision, before and after school care and holiday clubs to primary schools.

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.

At The Ark we aim to provide a safe, loving and stimulating environment. Each child is treated equally and welcomed into a warm, homely environment, where they are valued for who they are.  Children are encouraged to develop at their own pace, with activities and opportunities being carefully planned building from their interests and abilities.
