The Ark School

 
The Ark School provides preschool programs and child care for children ages 18 months through 6 years old. The Ark has a license from the California Department of Social Services. Licensing requires basic requirements dealing with staff qualifications, student-to-teacher ratios, facility specifications, and program parameters. The philosophy of The Ark is to exceed these basic standards where possible to assure the highest quality child care program.

The Ark School
Our philosophy:
- We believe that we have the opportunity to create a better world by providing a secure, warm, and nurturing environment for your child. We believe our program should reflect the values of each respective family by offering positive, creative experiences and practicing social competence.
- Our school is founded on the premise that each child should be treated and respected as an individual.
- Each child has a right to develop to the height of his/her ability through positive reinforcement and discovery, experiencing activities which pique his/her curiosity.
- The child's parents and their culture are respected and reflected through inspired and creative curriculum.
Community:
"Livermore is a city of 78,571 residents. Located approximately fifty miles east of San Francisco, Livermore is home to two world-renowned national laboratories, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory. Livermore's heritage includes some of the oldest vineyards in California, and a tradition of cattle ranching. Today, our city continues to expand its wine-making industry and celebrate its cowboy tradition with an annual rodeo."
Staff:
Our teaching staff is composed of experienced, qualified teachers and support aides for each age group. The Ark maintains a maximum teacher-to-child ratio of:
- 1:5 for toddlers
- 1:7 for 2's and 3's
- 1:12 for our Pre-Kindergarten

Classroom structure:
The majority of children are transitioned from one classroom to the next as a group according to when the children are eligible to enter Kindergarten. The Livermore school district's cut-off date for eligibility is December 2nd. Children in our program are considered for transition according to their developmental abilities and maturation level as well as upon space availability in the next classroom. Each of our classrooms follows a basic schedule. The schedule is the same for each class, only the time frame is different. We do this so as a child moves from one class to the next class, they are familiar with the routine and only the classroom and the teacher are different. Because we do many large-group activities, your child will become familiar with our entire staff.
Some opinions
"The Ark Preschool has been a home away from home for our son. The staff makes you feel like one of the family. As a parent, I know that he is in experiences, caring hands all day long. I find the Ark to be the perfect mix of curriculum and fun." (Dayna & Erik Taylor)
"We are really pleased with The Ark School. The teachers are really wonderful with the kids. We love trusting that our son is well looked after, learning and having lots of fun. We like it so much that our 14 month-old will be starting in January." (Veronica Horton Ralph)
