The Children’s Corner offers a unique child care experience in that it is located at Moravian Manor Retirement Community. The center is open to the greater-Lititz community, caring for infants, toddlers, and preschool children ranging in age from six weeks to five years old.
The Children’s Corner has been in operation since 1986. It is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

At The Children’s Corner, children will be in a safe, healthy, nurturing, and stimulating environment. Each child is an individual and the child care setting will accommodate and plan for these differences. Children benefit from a core of trained, professional staff assisted by volunteers. Parents are a very important part of the child care process and are encouraged to be active participants in their child’s daily care. Moravian Manor, its residents, employees, and the children will all benefit from joint responsibility in the child care center. The Children’s Corner will meet or exceed the regulations of the PA Department of Welfare and the program will meet the standards of the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs.
In addition to the developmentally appropriate curriculum followed
by the NAEYC guidelines, we have chosen the Creative Curriculum, designed for Early Childhood Programs.
In our classrooms the teachers create an atmosphere in which children are safe, feel emotionally secure, and have a sense of belonging. Teaching activities and strategies are challenging but within the children’s reach. Children are given choices and a role in determining how they will learn. Children are encouraged to experiment, explore, and pursue their own interests. A balance of active and quiet play, child initiated and teacher initiated activities are part of each child’s day.
Staff will make every effort to partner with our families in order to support children’s healthy development and learning. Frequent communication between the center and home are priority.
