Directions to Business

Born and raised right here in Dover, Weigelstown Child Care, LLC is a family owned, full service child care center, and is celebrating their 30th anniversary this year! With 2 locations in Dover, they provide care for infants, toddlers, preschool, before & after care, and summer camp. They currently have full-time daycare (4/5 days per week), a preschool program, and offer part-time care consisting of 2/3 days per week. They have been proud to serve different family generations – seeing children who enrolled many years ago who now bring their own children to Weigelstown Child Care. Some former students have even come back to work at Weigelstown Child Care! Employing 29 workers, serving 2 school districts (Dover & West York), and providing transportation for six elementary schools (including operating as a bus stop for Leib Elementary), Weigelstown Child Care most values the people living in and serving their community. They are looking forward to seeing local businesses and organizations move forward and grow here in Dover Township. Cheers to 30 more years!

Dover Township Business & Economic Local

Our Location

Dover Township, located in the northwestern part of York County, is about eight miles from the City of York and thirty-four miles from the City of Lancaster. The cities of Carlisle and Harrisburg are both approximately the same distance (twenty-six miles) from Dover Township. Harrisburg is directly north of Dover Township while Carlisle is to the northwest. Dover Township is approximately twenty-eight miles from the City of Gettysburg.

Our Surroundings

As part of York County, Dover Township finds itself located in close proximity to major cities along the eastern seaboard of the United States. Due to these factors, Dover Township as part of York County is considered to be on the fringe of “megalopolis”, the emerging super-city conceived to be developing along the Atlantic Coast from Boston, Massachusetts to Norfolk, Virginia. As this super-city develops, its economic, cultural and social influences will be welcomed and received within York County and within Dover Township.


Several highways are readily accessible to the residents of Dover Township to provide access to the major cities of the region. United States Route 15 and United States Route 30 provide access to cities such as: Gettysburg, Harrisburg, Lancaster and various points east. Interstate 83 provides access to Baltimore and Washington, D.C. to the south and to the following cities: Harrisburg, Philadelphia, New York and various other cities to the northern portion of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Pennsylvania Route 74 which navigates the Township from northwest to southeast, supplies connections between Carlisle and the City of York. If you need assistance getting to Dover Township, simply contact our municipal office and someone will be more than happy to provide you with directions!
