From the very beginning, Adventists have focused on the importance of education and healthcare in improving people’s lives. Additionally, Seventh-day Adventists have recognized the importance of the care, nurturance and education of God’s precious little ones. Ellen G.

During these years decided progress is made in either a right direction or a wrong one”, Child Guidance, p. 193. It is our desire to support you as you mold the lives, the minds, and the souls of God’s most precious gift—young children.
