Our goals are to work in cooperation with families to provide quality educational experiences and nurtuting daily care in a secure, loving, Christian environment.With Parkland officially moving to Full Day Kindergarten next year, we'll be opening an AFTERNOON BUSY BEE CLASS - for four and five year olds!  This class will be taught by Mrs. King, who currently teaches the Morning Busy Bees, and will be held from 12 - 2:30 pm (Monday - Friday).  The option to extend your child's day will also be possible; the hours of this option would be 12:00 - 6:00 pm.  You can of course pick your child up as early as you would like, but 6:00 pm is the latest.  


Located in the west end of Allentown, Pennsylvania, Nativity Lutheran Early Childhood Education Center is a non-profit, Christian center with highly experienced, certified teachers.  Our staff turnover is very low, with some teachers working at Nativity for 20 years or more.

Our goals are to work in cooperation with families to provide quality educational experiences and nurturing daily care in a secure, loving, Christian environment; and to guide the emotional, cognitive, physical, spiritual and social development of the children by providing age-appropriate experiences.
