School History:

The LBUSD Child Development Centers opened their first preschool in 1941, to support the widows who were living in the Navy housing project. In 1943 the project was extended to include school age care services, and the program grew to 21 preschool and school age care centers across Long Beach, Signal Hill and Lakewood. Today the program has continued to grow to 28 centers serving subsidized and fee based families in our part day and full day preschool programs as well as our TK-5th grade fee based and subsidized school age care programs.
