About Us


We would like to welcome you and your family to the Ark Association, which is a registered charity run by a committee of parents and friends for the benefit of the community.  There are four Arks in Oakham, all of which are registered with Ofsted Early Years and comply with Children Act 1989 and 2004 regulations, providing care and education for 3 months - 5 year old children.


Parents of children attending either of the Ark Nurseries are members of the Ark Association and are entitled to vote at the Annual General Meeting, on a scale of one vote per family. The Committee comprises of Trustees, Management and Fund-raising members. They have a legal obligation to run the Association in accordance with its constitution. One of the committee’s major functions is to raise funds.
