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.

Malisa Smith

Director

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. Our 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!

Sato Farhadnejad

Assistant Director & Teacher – Age 3

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 of 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”]

Office Coordinator

Favorite thing about A+

So far, my favorite thing has been how welcoming everyone has been.  I immediately felt like I was accepted as part of the family, even though I’m still new.

I can’t wait to get to know everyone better.

Sandra Candelario

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.

Alis Zeynalyan

Teacher Assistant

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+.

I enjoy the Christian environment and the different activities that we have here. For example, May Festival, Week of Prayer, Spaghetti Dinner, and our Christmas program. Also, I like that we have a good student-to-teacher ratio. We have a clean environment and parents are happy here.

Marta Ofelia Slade

Teacher – Toddlers (18 months – Age 3)

Favorite thing about A+

From when I worked here in the past and now I love to see the children singing here at Glendale City SDA Church on Sabbath. I also like being able to speak to the children freely about God and praying with them.

Dusty Castro

Teacher Assistant/Substitute

Favorite thing about A+

Experiencing the joy of children… their spontaneous love, excitement, and curiosity in God’s creation.

Kathy Miller

Summer Camp Teacher / Subsitute

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!
