After six years of successful service to the Lancaster city community, Whitaker Family Child Care is rebranding to become known as Whitaker Early Learning Center, LLC, to better reflect the full learning experience they offer, which nurtures the whole child. The Pennsylvania-licensed family child care center provides wrap-around child care and early education services for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. 

“As a home-based child care center, families are offered a more intimate environment,” says owner and director LaShonda M. Whitaker. “Our smaller teacher-to-child ratio increases the academic and safety success of each child. We make every attempt to provide quality service and be partners in child development and care.” 

Whitaker is a graduate of Millersville University and has more than 20 years of combined experience working in the fields of mental health and child care. ASSETS has been instrumental in providing additional leadership, business management and financial literacy coaching for her since 2012, and she began serving ASSETS as a board member in 2018. In addition to currently serving as a board member, Whitaker is also the committee chair for Programs and Impact.
