NOVA’S ARK…..Where Special Is Welcome

Best Summer Ever!
 

NOVA’S ARK is inclusive.  We are proud of our respectful, caring environment where acceptance and understanding are the keys to everyone’s positive experience.

NOVA’S ARK is a registered charity located on a peaceful ten acre, accessible, private setting whose mission is to provide stimulating experiences and programs for individuals of all ages and abilities.

NOVA’S ARK is home to a wide range of traditional and non-traditional therapy animals who provide the springboard for many up close and personal hands-on experiences.

NOVA’S ARK provides up to 4 peer mentors (youth buddies) with each special guest who, along with our therapy animals, promote social interaction and develop close bonds known as our Circle of Friends.

NOVA’S ARK has knowledgeable staff familiar with special education strategies to support accommodations and modifications to promote sensory stimulation and language/communication development.
