Reading to Children
Children often enjoy stories for their age group, with giant story-books a favorite in this Long Beach, California child care home. Sometimes an audio recording enhances the drama.

In the spring of 2013, our new child-care helper started using her skills in our daycare home. Laura has experience in the ABC School District (which district serves Artesia, Cerritos, Hawaiian Gardens, and parts of Lakewood, Long Beach, and Norwalk). She does well in reading to the children.
Buggy Rides to Cherry Park
When weather permits, Gladys and her professional child care helper take the children to nearby Cherry Park in the mornings, returning in time for lunch at the house.

When needed, another smaller buggy joins the six-seater so that each small child can ride safely to and from Cherry Park in Long Beach. Usually the older children (such as school-aged kids) can hold hands with an adult while walking by the buggy, depending on the number of children going to the park on any particular day.
Gladys and her husband, Jonathan, have a state license for a large daycare and a city license in Long Beach, with annual fire department licensing renewals annually. The state license is #191604310.

Cost of Child Care in Long Beach and Lakewood
How often a mother phones a family daycare home or preschool facility with a question about cost! ”How much does it cost?” The larger facilities may have large web sites, but if they publish their fees online they sure make those fees hard to find. It seems that they want to hide the cost.
