Noah's Ark Tiny Tots & Toddlers
Are you a family new to Bath? Or new to looking after little ones? Or are you a child caring expert?
We welcome anyone looking after little ones aged 0 - 4 – mum and dad, granny and grandpa and childminders too.
We meet on Tuesdays from 10am until 12 am during school term time. Noahs’ Ark meets in the main church building. Come in through the big gates off Triangle East. Please be careful crossing the road on Triangle East as there are no pavements on the church side.
Don’t worry if you are running late – we understand babies don’t follow to time! We latch the door at about 10.30 to keep the children safe. Just buzz the bell and we will welcome you in.
Come for tea and coffee, juice and a snack – and a friendly chat with other parents and carers.
Come for a great play time & we finish with a short nursery rhyme song time and a quick prayer.
We have four play zones:
· Baby play – with blankets and soft toys and things to explore
· Home corner - with imaginary play cooking and dressing up
· Ride on toys & prams and blocks or train set
· Crafty corner – colouring or making our different craft each week.
You remain in complete charge of your children throughout the session and may bring several children so long as you remain able to look after them all.
We operate a donations tin to cover costs and hope that you would be prepared to part with maybe £1 per week for the family. We think it's worth it!
We are looking forward to meeting you!
Liz, Mark, Dai, Dot and Ruth
So Noah's Ark is meeting for the last time in the Summer term on Tuesday 18th July .
We don't meet when the local state schools are off on holiday - so we're not meeting on July 25th and we're not meeting in August. We'll be back on September 5th! Hoping you all have a great summer holiday.
Our friends at Oldfield Park Pre-school meet in the Church Hall, off Moorland Road, on weekday mornings during term time.
This is a great pre-school for children from age 3 and many of the families who regularly use Noah's Ark go on to the Pre-school at the church too.
You can use the government's childcare vouchers for 15 hours a week. Children are currently eligible in the term after the one in which they become 3 years old.
Oldfield Park Pre-School currently (written July 2015) has spaces in September 2015, January 2015 or April 2015 starts.
Carron Cummins is the leader and will be happy to answer your questions.

As a church we think its right that the affluent west should pay a price that allows farming communities in other parts of the world to thrive. Fairtrade products offer farmers in difficult parts of the world a fair price for their work.
- Traidcraft provides our sugar sachets.
- Indigo Valley Coffee Company provides our filter coffee.
- Clipper provides our tea and decaffeinated tea.
Noah's Ark coffee is a medium roast 'Coffee of Angels' grown in Peru by a community co-operative called Cecovasa. Buying this coffee helps families in Peru to transport children to the temporary local school after their school was destroyed.
So while we are enjoying a tasty hot drink in Oldfield Park we are helping families around the world to have a better life!
Who's for another cup?
