Breaking the cycle of homelessness, one child at a time.
Through nurturing and consistent full-time early education, Precious Lamb Preschool meets the growing demands of Long Beach’s homeless and underserved community. Our goal is to develop school readiness through an emphasis on academic, social and emotional development with curriculum nuanced toward trauma. In partnership with local shelters and rehab facilities, children ages 18 months to 5 years old receive full-time, high quality preschool education at absolutely no charge while their parent pursues employment, education, rehabilitation, and counseling. Precious Lamb was founded in 1999 by Sheralyn Croft in response to the city’s need for affordable child care, and since then has served hundreds of at-risk kids.
