Lucy Picon

Garden Room Teacher

Lucy was born and raised in Long Beach. Because her mother was a preschool teacher, Lucy was able to volunteer in many centers. At an early age Lucy knew she wanted a career that involved children. She became a student at Long Beach Community College. Still unsure what field of child care she would embark, she joined Kid Works family as the centers assistant in 2014. In three years Lucy has observed and admired the tremendous growth children make. She substituted for the Spanish Immersion program in 2016, leading her to an opportunity in becoming a garden room teacher starting the following year. Lucy continues her knowledge of children threw LBCC classes, workshops, seminars and of course in the Garden room.

2020/2021 Program with COVID-19 Protocols

Fall Session Dates:
September 9, 2020 to June 11, 2021

Hours of Operation:
Monday to Thursday: 8 AM – 4 PM
Friday: 8 AM – 12:30 PM

Tuition: $1497/month

Some of the considerations that informed this decision include:

  1. Class size: Maintaining the limit of 12 children per class, with the Bungalow (for ages 4.5+) limited to fewer children since the classroom is smaller than the other two classrooms.
  2. Dedicated teachers: Teachers will remain with their cohort for the duration of the school day to minimize other staff having to step in.
  3. Smaller teacher to student ratio: With smaller group sizes, children can expect more opportunities for one-on-one work with a teacher. The ratio will be 1:6 in the Garden and Sun Rooms, and will be 1:8 in the Bungalow.
  4. Accommodating our full-day families: Most of our families need a full-day schedule so offering a longer school day would work for the majority of families.
  5. Weekly staff meeting: We will have a shorter school day on Fridays so our staff can meet to connect over school news and curriculum planning. We plan to conduct socially-distanced staff meetings outdoors after the children are picked up from school.
  6. Robust health protocol and enhanced cleaning and sanitizing: Extra measures in place to keep everyone as healthy as possible.
