A message from the manager

My name is Aine and I have been Manager of Noah’s Ark since 1993! My most memorable moment is when I showed Princess Diana around the nursery when it first opened, and having the third child of a family recently join the nursery - which is very unusual! I also have very fond memories of my own daughter attending the nursery until she was 4 and a half. Our nursery is unique as it is bright, spacious and family-friendly. We’re also a real part of the local community. We're very proud of our nursery and would love to show you around! Please get in touch to arrange a visit.

Please note Noah's Ark Nursery is offering the 30 Hours from 1 September, 2017. This is open to working parents of 3 & 4 year olds. There are a limited number of places available so please contact Aine your Nursery Manager for details.

We are located in Shoreditch, providing care and education for children from birth to 5 years. We're open 8am to 6pm, 51 weeks a year.
