Our History

In 1981, Pastors Arthur Torres and Casey Bahr had a dream that was realized with the establishment of the A+ Adventist Preschool. By 1982, a kindergarten class began followed by the first and second grades. The pastors’ dream came true to have our children and their families receive the best that Christian education can offer. Today we offer a year-round preschool and summer camp for kindergarten through third grade.

Favorite thing about A+

I enjoy the Christian family atmosphere. I love the fact that God is here. We have amazing teachers that teach about how much God loves us through the stories and songs, and showing their kindness and love. Out developmentally academic curriculum is fun for the children while teaching them the basics needed to be successful. We want each family to feel like they are part of our A+ family from the moment they start here and even after they have grown up and moved on to other schools. They are a part of the long history that makes A+ so very special!

Favorite thing about A+

When I was growing up I wanted to be a teacher. Since I started working at A+, day by day my love has gotten deeper and deeper towards my job, especially towards the children. A+ is like a Christian family, where we can learn more about God’s love; because o that, we all respect and adore each other. A+ is a friendly and caring facility where “Everybody IS Somebody Special.” trust in the Lord and A+ [“the Best Pre-School”]

Favorite thing about A+

Being Seventh-day Adventist my whole life. I have learned the teachings and stories about the Lord. I am excited to be part of this children’s center that encourages my own practices.

I love seeing the children progress through the year. Watching children learn something new is the most rewarding aspect of my job, whether it’s learning how to share or learning a new color. I love watching the children’s eyes light up and how excited they get when they realize they have accomplished something new! I absolutely love my job and find it to be challenging and rewarding each and every day. There is always something new to look forward to and I truly enjoy coming to work each day.

Teacher – Age 4 & Spanish

Favorite thing about A+

Something that makes me very happy is being able to work at A+ in a Christian environment, with the children. I can freely read stories about Jesus and sing songs dedicated to God. Teaching has been a ministry for me and the children are a vital part of that ministry. This is how I can bring the children to realize how much God loves us.

Favorite thing about A+

A+ is one of the best pre-schools in Glendale. My favorite things in A+ are the environment and the good staff. I like A+ because it is a Christian school, which helps children to grow honest and gives them knowledge about Jesus. Working with a good staff I feel very comfortable and happy. Working with children makes me feel young and more energetic. That’s why I can’t imagine my life without children and A+.

Favorite thing about A+

I enjoy the family atmosphere at A+ Adventist Children’s Center. It is great fun for me to share the things I love with this family. I especially like sharing songs and stories about Jesus. It is gratifying to hear the children suddenly bursting into one of the songs we learned in worship! Nature is also one of my favorite things. It is exciting to watch the children develop a knowledge and appreciation of the wonderful world that God has created. Introducing children to a new and unique creature is an amazing experience for all of us! God has been so good to all of us to give us all these gifts – and salvation, too!
