All young children in Long Beach will reach their full potential and live in healthy and safe homes and communities.
The City of Long Beach Early Childhood Education Strategic Plan is a collaborative and comprehensive plan developed with multiple stakeholders throughout the City. This Plan was created to ensure all families and young children across the City have equitable access to the programs and supports they seek, as well as to provide a road map for the City’s early childhood system to continue to advance and promote access to high-quality services and supports for all families. The purpose of this Plan is to provide direction for early childhood investments and advocacy as well as to outline collaborative opportunities that can strengthen the City’s offerings for young children and their families.

The Celebration of the Young Child, is a free, one-day event that will be held at Long Beach State University (1250 Bellflower Blvd.), from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on April 27, 2019. A focus will be placed on children up to age six. However, all families from across the City are welcome to attend. Over 70 Long Beach organizations will be in attendance, ranging from parent groups, preschools and child-friendly businesses to representatives from the Long Beach Public Library and Aquarium of the Pacific. Families can find the resource they were looking for, while their children learn, explore and play with fun and exciting hands-on toys, sensory objects, and age appropriate obstacle courses. And of course, families will have the day to celebrate the young children in their life!
Added this year will be free shuttles from Brett Harte Library, Mark Twain Library and Michelle Obama Library to and from CSULB!
