* The orphanage in ''Disney/MeetTheRobinsons'' where Lewis and Goob grow up appears to be one of these, complete with kindly matron Mildred. Interestingly, the DVD commentary says that Mildred is careful to not coddle the children ''too'' much since they need to be able to leave when adopted without emotional hang-ups. The biggest problem at Lewis's orphanage is, well, [[MadScientist Lewis himself]], though he [[CharacterDevelopment gets better]].
* The orphanage where Tim lives in ''WesternAnimation/{{Nocturna}}'' doesn't really feature too much in the movie, but it appears to be more or less this trope; children are given the run of the place during the daylight hours and there are plenty of toys to keep them amused. The only hitch is that Tim tends to be given rather a rough time by the other children because of his noisy bedtime ritual.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheCareBearsMovie'' has its framing device Mister Cherrywood telling a bedtime story to kid at an orphanage. From what little we see of it, the children seem to love the staff.

Home for Lost Boys, run by [[MeetTheRobinsons Cornelius and Franny Robinson]]. It hasn't been seen on-page yet, but it appears they're dishing out money for their kids to be more or less this trope; children are given the run of the place during the daylight hours and there are plenty of toys to keep them amused. The only hitch is that Tim tends to be given rather attend a rough time by the other children because of his noisy bedtime ritual.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheCareBearsMovie'' has its framing device Mister Cherrywood telling
fancy private school, so it's clearly a bedtime story to kid at an orphanage. From what little we see of it, the children seem to love the staff.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': The orphanage in which Voldemort grew up is more or less described as a pleasant, if gloomy, place to be raised -- Tom Riddle himself was the problem.

* Deconstructed a bit in ''Literature/DresdenFiles.'' Harry, who lived in one, points out that no matter how kind the people in the system are to you, it is still a system with lots of people to deal with.

* ''Anime/HanaNoKoLunlun'' has the heroine running across one in the South Italian countryside (not exactly mentioned ''where'' in Italy, but considering she had just left Sicily, it could be anywhere in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calabria Calabria]]), run by a nun named Sister Mariana and with kids from the age range of 5 to 15. The eldest children, lead by the HotBlooded Emilio, fret over cute little Lucero's IllGirl condition and desperately seek for the money they need for her operation, so they're overjoyed when there are rumors about a hidden treasure coming from WorldWarTwo. [[spoiler: It wasn't a treasure... but an old ''bomb''.]]

* Subverted in ''Manga/OnePiece'': [[spoiler: Charlotte "Big Mom" Linlin spent some time in one run by the famous BadassPreacher Mother Carmel... but in reality, Carmel was a slave trader who took in unwanted kids to then sell them to pirates and the Marines. She wanted to pawn off [[PersonOfMassDestruction Linlin]] to the highest bidder, so she took the ''incredibly'' big and powerful little girl in and pretended to love her while enabling [[CreepyChild her worst habits]]... and during Linlin's sixth birthday it bit her and the other orphans in the ass. [[ImAnHumanitarian Lite]][[CannibalismSuperpower rally]].]]

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', [[ChurchMilitant Libra the War Monk]] builds and mantains one of these in all of his endings [[note]]Save the one with a girl Avatar, since those are generic. (Though nothing says they couldn't have done so anyway.)[[/note]]. If he's married, his wife (and presumably their child) will help him out take care of the orphans -- with different results, depending on who his lady is: Miriel is a bit stand-offish, both Lissa and Nowi become OneOfTheKids, Tharja is {{Tsundere}} to them, Sully is the local CoolBigSis, etc.

** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Blazing Sword's]]'' epilogue, Lucius [[{{Expy}} (who Libra above was based on)]] also opens an orphanage, [[spoiler: what with him being a war orphan as well]]. It's implied to be the same one that Nino's children, Lugh and Raigh, grew up in between that game and ''Sword of Seals'', [[spoiler: which unfortunately [[DoomedByCanon doesn't bode well for Lucius]], since that orphanage was destroyed during Bern's invasion. (The ''closest'' to a subversion of this bad ending would be his shared one with his master Raymond aka Raven, in which Lucius remains as Raven's vassal as they go WalkingTheEarth.)]]

* The Children's Home in Warsaw run by the FriendToAllChildren Janusz Korczak appears to have been this. The children had their own court, they were treated fairly, and the two heads worried themselves silly if a child refused to eat. Despite offers from virtually ''everyone'' (Jewish Council, Polish Resistance, German Police) to keep him safe, director Korczak went with the 192 survivors to [[UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust Treblinka extermination camp]].

He didn't want them to be worried, so he kept them oblivious to the facility's purpose for as long as possible, and he didn't want to live without them.
