Founded in 1983, Noah’s Ark Preschool is a thriving childcare center on the church grounds for the Ojai Valley and is an integral part of Ojai UMC’s youth ministry outreach. It currently enrolls over 80 students with opportunities for both half and full day care. Each week the children come in to the church sanctuary for a chapel time and may participate in the annual vacation bible study during the summer. The Preschool also hosts various fundraising events throughout the year in order to support scholarships for low income children who may need financial assistance to attend.
