About Ark

We are a small, not-for-profit foundation (stichting) launched in 2010. Ark is for children aged 3 to 13 years with autism, communication and language delays, sensory processing disorders, PDD-NOS and other developmental challenges. We work with children who are not yet ready for a regular school environment.

 Ark provides intensive one-to-one support throughout the day from a skilled, experienced educator. Children also have the opportunity to work in pairs and small groups – to form friendships and learn from their peers in a structured but playful environment – a vital part of any child’s development.


Ark is inviting Applications for freelance support workers to join our talented team
  • One to one support
  • Family support & advice
  • On site training and learning opportunities for parents, educators, therapist and other professionals
