Palmer Moravian Day School

Palmer Moravian Day School is designed to create programs for children between the ages of 18 months to 5 years and grades Kindergarten through 5th in a safe and nurturing learning environment.

Varied experiences, peer relationships, growth and development are focused upon in our program. It is a positive environment for the development of the children’s self-esteem in conjunction with their respect for each other. The curriculum is planned to meet the social, emotional, intellectual and physical needs of the preschool child.

The Palmer Township Community Moravian Church established the Day School in 1983 as a ministry and service to the community. We welcome people of all races, color, religious creed, disability, ancestry, national origin (including limited English proficiency), age, sex.

The PA Department of Human Services licenses our school. The educational staff consists of the director, teachers, assistants and aides that meet the requirements of the DHS guidelines.

Our school also participates in the PA Keystone STARS program. We have earned a Star One quality rating as a facility that is committed to maintaining compliance with program regulation and to enhance quality learning through the Keystone STARS.

Palmer Moravian Parent/Teacher Committee

We feel parental involvement in a child’s early school experience is very important. We are fortunate at Palmer Moravian Day School to have the Steering Wheel Committee, a small group of active and capable parent volunteers who can help plan for fieldtrip, fundraiser and special class programs for the children during the year. This parent group has been a huge part of our school since the school began in 1983.
