Owned and operated by the Smith family, Precious Gifts Home Enrichment is the beginning of a life long commitment to serving the children and families of South Euclid, Ohio. Inspired by community need and driven by purpose, passion, and intentionality, PGHE is a licensed home enrichment childcare program for children 6 weeks to 4 years of age. With a mission to enrich the lives of children and their families via exposure, intentionality and the 7 fundamental principles of life, we are committed to strengthening families as a whole.
We are parents, educators, and advocates for children, who understand the day to day needs and challenges that all parents face. With 4 children of our own, we know how imperative it is to not only have safe, affordable, and dependable childcare but quality as well. That's why PGHE provides a unique educational environment where children can discover how to thrive as the unique individuals they were created to be while in a loving home environment. By exposing them to diverse learning opportunities and empowering them to discover and navigate through their self-awareness and the world around them, we set the foundation for life long success, as well as kindergarten readiness. We’re also intentional about ensuring that each child’s foundation and first example is and remains stable. Which is why we are committed to doing life with all of our parents. Walking with and helping them get through all the challenges that life can bring so they don’t unintentionally spill those challenges onto their children.
So no matter what your childcare (or personal) needs are, our program is sure to be a great fit for you and your family. Feel free to contact us when you're ready to give your child and family the head start to life that they deserve.
Every child is gifted. They just unwrap their gifts at different times.
To become a staple within our community, by being a resource to the children, families, community and local businesses that we have the privilege to serve and partner with.
To give the generations after us, the tools and knowledge every child needs to have a strong foundation and head start in life.
Meet The Smiths
Hey there!! Thank you for stopping by to learn a little bit more about the family behind the brand. My name is Loresha Smith, and I'm the lead educator here at PGHE. We are family-owned and operated and have proudly served the South Euclid community since 2017. My husband Alex (affectionately referred to as "Pop Pop") and I have 4 children (8, 9, 11 & 16) who are just as dedicated and
passionate about the Precious Gifts vision, as we are.
We started this journey of service after years of being unable to find various resources for when our own children were younger. Life and parenting have taught us that the basis of any child's success, begins with a solid foundation and that's what we wanted to give to every child we
encountered. So with over 10 years of childcare experience and a passion for instilling that solid foundation in children, my husband and I opened our home and started creating the environment we weren't fortunate enough to have, so other families and children could benefit.
We are here to assist families in setting the foundation of lifetime success and a love of learning in their children, while giving their parents/caregivers the tools, guidance, and wisdom on how to be their child's first example of what life, love and being looks like and walking life with them. As a nurse, coach, administrative team member to a local school district and a host of other titles that we carry, we understand the value and importance of a great education, not just academically, but holistically. Understanding the benefits of individualized attention and the effects of small group settings in a child's early years. It's an amazing blessing and opportunity that we don't take lightly and a privilege that we hold high standards to.
So sure, there are plenty of other programs that you could choose from, but why not go with the only option that truly prepares your child for life and kindergarten? A place where your child can be loved and cared for just like they were at home and helps you navigate through all things childcare (including your personal growth and development)? So inquire today and learn how your family can become an extension of ours.
Since excellence is what we stand for, quality childcare is what we do.
