"Save the Ark"

A small team of parents and staff have teamed up to fundraise for a short term cash injection that will save this lovely 43 year old pre-school from imminent closure. The money will be used to enhance current service offerings to secure its future.

The campaign has now expired but it's not too late to support this charity.


In 1976, Noah's ark pre-school opened. There is no more idyllic setting than the Village Hall in Cookham Dean, right on the village green which provides a wonderful, clean air, outside space for children.

In the last 2 weeks, a team of parents and staff have come together to raise funds to invest in a modernisation of the service offering Noah's provides in order to appeal to the needs of modern parents.

We plan to lower the age of admission from 2.5 years to 2 years, which is what today's parents need, value, and will pay for.

We also aim to offer an extension of Noah's current hours of coverage, from 08.30 to 13.00 to 08.30 to 15.00. Again, this is a move to cater for today's modern parent's needs.

We have researched what we need to offer, assessed what it will take to deliver and know we can succeed.

HOWEVER, to launch these enhanced services, which will secure Noah's Ark's short term viability and long term continued success, we appeal to everyone's help to raise the calculated necessary capital to make the vision a reality.

Thanks so much.

David (Dad of 4 year old Margot who absolutely loves her pre-school) and on behalf of a wonderful group of people who volunteered to effect these changes just 7 days ago.

About the charity

Noah's Ark Pre-school, Cookham Dean
Noah's Ark Pre-school, Cookham Dean

Noah’s Ark has been part of the community in Cookham Dean since the late 1970’s, becoming a registered charity in 1982. We are a traditional pre-school for children between 2 and 5 years. Run by a parent-led volunteer committee as a charitable organisation since the constitution was signed. Unfortunately, over the last year our numbers of children have dropped significantly, we desperately need to raise funds to help us continue to welcome children and help them reach their full potential. Learning through play to be happy, sociable and confident. We believe in fresh air and exercise and our children regularly go on nature walks, trips to the local farm, fruit picking and adventures in our local apple orchard. Please help us to stay open and continue to give local children
