Noah’s Little Ark is a ministry of First United Methodist Church, Palmyra.

Noah’s Little Ark Christian Preschool was started in 1998 to provide a safe, affordable, quality environment for pre-kindergarten aged and younger children to families who live, work, or travel in Palmyra, PA. At NLA each child can develop socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and intellectually all while fostering their young Christian faith and discipleship in a loving and accepting atmosphere. 

Our teachers, aides, and support staff are enthusiastic, loving, positive people with a desire to promote and encourage a love of learning curiosity in each child. Our staff regularly participate in professional development experiences, trainings, and continuing education that grow and enhance their early childhood staff skills.

Our goal is to maintain a safe, healthy school environment for students and staff in every way. All children attending Noah’s Little Ark are required to have age appropriate vaccinations that are current and up to date. (A medical exemption signed by your current family physician will be honored.)

While present in the facility each day, children will be in contact with children, families and other employees who are also at risk of community exposure. No list of restrictions, guidelines or practices will remove 100% of the risk of exposure to illness (specifically regarding COVID-19 as the virus can be transmitted by persons who are asymptomatic). Each family plays a crucial role in keeping everyone in the facility safe and reducing the risk of exposure by following the practices outlined in Noah’s Little Ark Preschool’s Covid Document.

Detailed instructions, guidelines, procedures, and policies are further explained in the NLA Parent Handbook, available on request.


Noah’s Little Ark shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), ancestry, gender, gender expression, disability or sexual orientation.
