Noahs Ark Preschool and Rainbow Tots is a ministry of Hempfield United Methodist Church in Lancaster, Pa.

Matthew 28:18-20 “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

To provide an innovative weekday educational environment, informed by a Christian world view, which celebrates each child as God’s unique creation and equips each learner with a Biblical foundation for life so we might live together joyfully under the lordship of Christ.

The goal of Noah’s Ark Preschool & Rainbow Tots is to equip each child with the skills necessary to thrive in God’s world.

We accomplish this through:

*Nurturing each participant in becoming good stewards of all God has given.
*Fostering a positive self-image by inviting the learner to begin the lifelong process of becoming all that God has created him or her to be.
*Encouraging learning through exploration of God’s world.
*Teaching socialization through group activities.
*Teaching compassion for the diversity of God’s creation.
*Teaching age appropriate skills to promote a love of learning.

To help realize these goals, a wide variety of experiences are offered in our program. Classes are kept small so that the teacher and teaching aide assigned to each class will find it possible to relate to each student in the most helpful way.
