The School for Children opened its doors as a pre-school in 1971. Dr. Joy Beaver, an SNU professor, had a vision for a place that would serve college students needing to practice their teaching while offering a "top-notch" program for young children to learn. The school quickly grew each year and one grade at a time was added. The school has continued to educate hundreds of children for over 36 years.
