The Ark Pre-School is now a member of The Forest Childcare Association. Staff have undergone training and are committed to giving all children the opportunity to spend time in the great outdoors on a regular basis. Outdoor play and outings contribute to learning and health, and most importantly help children grow to appreciate the natural environment. Outdoor activities take place daily, both in the field adjacent to the church centre and in the well equipped playground. Regular trips are also organised to the rec and to Radford Park.
