Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to NOA's Ark Nursery.

We are a day nursery in Banbury for children aged 0-5, aiming to provide the best possible care and education for local families. Based in a purpose-built, environmentally friendly building with its own spacious garden, NOA’s Ark offers babies and children the chance to explore the world around them and develop in a safe, nurturing and exciting environment.

Choosing the right nursery is a difficult decision to make. We hope that we can make that easier for parents by providing a welcoming, safe environment where children feel confident and at home. 

Giving each child the best start in their learning adventure is something we take very seriously with our 0–5 year olds, striving to encourage, teach and enable the ‘best’ in each child who spends time with us. We recognise that each child is an individual with their own unique personality and character, and we want to give them every opportunity to reach their full potential.

Vision

NOA’s Ark is a day nursery for children aged 0-5 in Banbury. In December 2016, we were rated by Ofsted as 'Good'. We have a brand-new, environmentally friendly building designed specifically for the needs of our children, as well as a huge outdoor space for children to explore, securely located on the North Oxfordshire Academy site.

At NOA’s Ark, we firmly believe in an all-round natural experience for all children. Research shows the children who spend significant amounts of time outdoors are healthier, happier and have well-developed social skills. Our outdoor space provides brilliant opportunities for your children to discover and experiment in a natural environment, and we provide waterproof outdoor suits and aprons so that they can explore to their heart’s content!
