Open House January 8th. 6:30 PM to 8 PM

Registration for the summer and next school year begins for the public in the fourth week of January.  We allow the In-House families to have first choice for classroom placement for the first two weeks.  Your best bet is to come to Open House on January 8th, 2020 between the hours of 6:30 and 8:00pm.  I number registrations in the order that I receive them that night and then I enter them into the system in that order the following Monday until the spots are gone!  You’ll have the opportunity to meet the teachers, see the classrooms, ask any questions you might have, and generally get a warm-fuzzy feeling for our center at that time.  :)

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.
