Since the 1970s, JD Andrews Foundation leaders have worked on behalf of children through various national initiatives that improved the world of early childhood professionals. Today, we continue these efforts through the Foundation by providing teachers with world class training on core skills.

Our Mission

Working with preschool teachers and families of young children, the JD Andrews Foundation bridges the gap between awareness of healthy habits and action, in both the classroom and at home. We work with one teacher at a time, one program at a time.

Our Vision

It's our vision that every early childhood professional should be able to confidently work with children and their families to develop lifelong healthy habits that prevent the formation of diabetes, obesity, and related conditions -- this is one step on the path toward a healthier America and a healthier world.
