The Market and
The Ark Day-care Nursery currently operates from a purpose built community nursery in the Clapton area. We have an open registration and currently accommodate 34 children at anytime.
Due to increased demands on our services and recognition of our contribution to the children and families in the local and neighboring areas, the management of the Ark seeks to expand the provision and services in the area. The Ark's aim is to respond to natural progression of the growing needs of the community, rather than to jump on ad hoc opportunities to set up new ventures.
The Ark Day-care Nursery aims to support, the demand for two year old placements, the child care needs of working, studying parents with children and parents seeking employment in the local community and from the neighboring boroughs.
One of the unique factors of The Ark is that we are passionate about the local Hackney community. Our ultimate drive is to make a difference in the lives of the children and families who benefit from attending the Ark Day Care Nursery and therefore plan to continue to seek strong links with the local authority by ensuring that we provide placements to some of the most vulnerable children within the community. Target groups include: children known to Social services, children of young parents, children with special educational needs, children of parents experiencing challenging family circumstances. This is currently evident in our practice were we provide care for children known to social care and our nursery manager is actively involved in Core Group and Children In Need meetings with social services. We also have a history of meeting the needs of children with additional needs and they have made good progress during their time with us.
Again, long term we endeavour to use our personal skills, knowledge and understanding of childcare and our work with vulnerable families to delivery training programmes, workshops and regular family events to empower our community and future generations.
Ark Day-care Nursery will have one main product stream:
- To provide childcare during the working
day, between 7:30am and 6:30am.
The Ark Day-care
Nursery is a company owned by Maxine Aboagye, and the day to day operations
will be carried out by a supernumerary manager, senior staff and practitioners

Ark Day-care Nursery aims to use the business route to continue to channel its
passion of making a difference in the lives of children in the London Borough
