Long Beach Day Nursery 2017-2018 Annual Report

The mission of the Long Beach Day Nursery is to provide high quality early care & education for young children of working parents.

Greetings! We are pleased to present to you the highlights of 2017-2018, and look forward to our many plans that are rolling out in the 2018-2019 year.

- The Strategic Plan, a 3 year road map for LBDN's future, was created with the insight, expertise, and diverse experience of the Strategic Planning Task Force.   - Expansion grants have given LBDN the ability to increase student capacity and renovate existing classrooms.   - Increased support from longtime grantees has allowed more support for teachers, including worthy wages.

Under the guidance of our Executive Director, Whitney Leathers, the Long Beach Day Nursery continues to be at the forefront of early childhood care and education. Her visionary mindset oversees the big picture, our strength and challenges, and continues to establish Long Beach Day Nursery at the leadership position of early childhood education not only in Long Beach but in the greater Los Angeles area. Our tenure and

strength is a credit to the community members, elected officials and area foundations that have invested in LBDN, and to the unwavering dedication and brilliance of our staff (some of whom have been with us for decades!).

Debbie Thorpe, Chair Michele Dobson, Chair-Elect Joen Garnica, 1st Vice Chair

To all of our long-time supporters, generous foundations and friends, we thank you and are grateful for all whom share the vision of our founders. Your gifts enable the Long

Annual Report 2017-2018

Strategic Plan In our 106 years, we have always been forward thinking, seeking out new and better ways to support children and working families. This year we worked with a powerhouse Strategic Planning Task Force to realign our mission vision and goals and created our new 2018-2021 Strategic Plan. This plan continues the forward thinking legacy of LBDN. As our community and field evolve, so too are we evolving to best meet the needs of our community, students, families, and team. Our Plan calls for continued investment in high quality, research-based programming that engage and embrace the whole child and their family. It calls for investing in our team who work tirelessly to provide a strong foundation of love and learning. It calls for deepening partnerships to coordinate and maximize our efforts on behalf of families, young children and our early childhood workforce. The plan calls for further mobilizing our supporters to advance our comprehensive vision of the future. Won’t you join us in meeting our goals and objectives?
