Review for Long Beach Day Nursery, Long Beach, CA, USA
The Long Beach Day Nursery will celebrate its 100th year next year. One hundred years ago it was the vision of Florence Bixby (long before there was concern about support for children of single parents) that children from homes where the Mother had to work in order to support her family should not be forgotten and would continue to learn and grow and receive advantages comparable to those that children in families with a "stay-at-home" Mother received. Women in early Long Beach shared this vision and from the onset the Nursery has been a model for childcare programs across the United States.
The Nursery has developed as it has matured. At the Nursery today, children from infancy to pre-kindergarden ages are challenged to stretch their learning and understandings. They participate in relationship building activities, learn to respect rules and become adept in reading and comprehension skills. Upon graduation they are ready to enter Kindergarden and successfully compete with their peers on all levels.
The Long Beach Day Nursery which began as a vision of one woman and developed with the efforts of those who shared her vision stands as a testament in our community to the belief that every child deserves early childhood preparation which gives him/her a solid foundation for life. May The Long Beach Day Nursery continue to serve this essential service.
