The Ark set sail in 2002 and following a change of ownership in 2015, Priyanka and Gourav Batra joined the team and took charge with the vision of redefining the standards by which high quality childcare is measured.

Priyanka and Gourav are driven by their passion for excellence in childcare provision, through happy and healthy children, motivated staff and relaxed and reassured parents.

Ofsted: Outstanding

These principles have also now been recognised by OFSTED where in our last inspection we were judged to be “Outstanding”.





Millies Mark

We’ve been awarded by Millies Mark! Millie’s Mark is the gold standard in paediatric first aid for childcare providers. A setting achieving Millie’s Mark is an exceptional achievement for not only the nursery but for the children and the parents too. The achievement of the mark acknowledges that staff would be confident in maybe one day saving a child’s life if they needed to. Confidence is a key factor in the administration of first aid and Millie’s Mark allows nurseries to feel confident in their own team.
