Whitcomb Family Daycare
Featured Family Home Child Care
Gladys and Jonathan Whitcomb have had child-care children in their home for over twenty years. They twice have built rooms onto their home, both times for child care. The backyard they have transformed into the "Village."
Licensed by both the state of California and by the city of Long Beach, the Whitcomb Family Day-
care also enriches the lives of the children attending, beyond what is required by simply the letter of the law: free piano lessons, free chess lessons, and W.O.R.D.S. reading.

But as toddlers grow older they can choose to make real music. . . . Jonathan Whitcomb helps his wife, Gladys, by giving children short piano lessons in the living room, where [other] . . . children can see how music is learned.
