History

Anne Clements, Owner/Administrator of Annie's Ark, Inc., holds a Bachelor's Degree in Child Development Perspectives. Anne initially cared for children in her home, and moved to the United Church of Livonia basement in 1982 as her enrollment increased and the Lord prompted her to expand.

In 1988 Annie's Ark found a new, larger home at 23 North Street in Livonia to accommodate the growing number of children and their families seeking quality child care. The facility had originally been used as a manufacturing plant and extensive renovation was necessary. Many helping hands contributed to convert the building into a day care center designed to meet the needs of the children.

Annie's Ark is a private child care center serving children six weeks through 3rd grade. We offer a high-quality, early childhood program which provides a safe and nurturing environment while promoting the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of young children.

Annie's Ark offers full time or part time care. We have fully trained staff/Child Development Associates, many of whom are members of the Rochester Association for the Education of Young Children. Our curriculum is age appropriate and the children have the use of a naturalistic playground where they can get "back to the basics."

The Ark is New York State Licensed.

ANNIE'S ARK HIGHLIGHTS

Brain Gym:

Physical activity builds children's mental abilities. From two-year-olds through school age, our classrooms participate daily in the morning "Brain Gym" activities. This fun movement/music time helps the children to "wake up" their brains.

Research shows that what your child does physically in the first few years of life plays a major role in how well he/she will develop in other abilities such as reading, writing, mathematics and creativity. Movement activities can help your child's brain develop at a higher intelligence.

Feel free to stop in and join us!

Celebrations & Holidays

Some early childhood programs seem to build their curriculum around holidays, just going from to the other on the calendar. We don't take that approach, but we do like to celebrate!

We honor the traditions of all the children and families in our program. We believe in the importance of family traditions and holidays strengthening the connections between home and school.

We often gather information from families about the various heritages and traditions that make up our home-school community. With this knowledge, we plan activities to reflect the diverse cultures.

We encourage each of you as families to join us in our celebrations. Even if you can't be with us, please share your family traditions, recipes for holiday foods and any special items that reflect your heritage and family history. Come enjoy seasonal festivals with us - Winter, Spring and Fall.

Everyone is welcome!
