The Maranatha Child Development Center opened its doors in 1979 and is a licensed, accredited, gold seal quality care center located in the city of Miami Gardens, Florida. The center is faith-based and is a Seventh Day Adventist Early Childhood Education facility. The present director has been at the center for over 36 years and has a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education Administration. She and her staff enjoy working with children and have pride in knowing that they provide a clean, caring Christian environment for children birth through 5 years. Parents enjoy the family atmosphere their children experience away from home.

An important feature of the program is that all groups, including the infants, participate in worship activities to begin the day.
