The only reason they don’t get a 5 star rating from me is because of their prices. They are extremely expensive being that I have 2 kids going here. You’re looking at around $350/
I love how School for Amazing Kids, Calera offer various school events for the children and even parents with Parent’s Night Out. They offer a Sweetheart Ball, pictures with the Easter bunny, visit from Santa, Book Fair, Halloween Trick or Treat, Muffins for Mom on Mother’s day, Donuts with Dad on Father’s Day, Goodies with Grandparents for Grandparent’s Day, and even a graduation ceremony for the ones who are about to transition into Kindergarten which I can’t wait for since they have little caps and gowns and everything. My daughter is only 9 months, so she doesn’t really get to participate in all of the different things they offer, but she has a lot to look forward to. I have even seen where a ballet instructor comes to teach ballet during school hours. I have even seen when they had a space bounce in the play area for the older kids.
Although my daughter may not be able to participate in a lot of the school events right now, I love how they are always doing art crafts in her class. She always brings home the cutest little pictures that were designed by the teacher but created by her. It means a lot to know that your little ones are being engaged as well.
They really resonated there emphasis on community involvement and their belief in a strong faith when they had a Prayer Breakfast to pray for our community. That was a great thing for them to do to not only bring the parents and children on the school together, but to bring the community together as a whole. I love that my daughter goes to a child care facility that not only shows that they are proud and support the area in which they are located but that they also believe in God and the power of prayer.
I love that my daughter’s lead teacher was the one who headed this up and I love the commitment she had throughout. They even provided us with a great breakfast while we mingled with everyone there. It is important that children not only have a foundation for community support and Christian principles in their home, but just as well in their child care facility or school where they spend the majority of their time and I am so glad that my daughter attends a place just like that.
It is a very hard and even an emotional time when a parent drops their child off for daycare for the very first time and this was definitely the feeling I had when I had to finally go back to work after spending 9 wonderful weeks with my newborn; but I will say that taking her School for Amazing Kids, Calera made that transition just a little more easier than it would normally be. I remember the first day, her lead teacher, Crystal, welcomed us with a very warm greeting and immediately took my daughter for a first time bonding moment. At that moment, I knew I had made the right choice in child care for my daughter.
The staff is so friendly and they speak every time you see one of them, even if they are not the teacher of your child. They really love on the children and it reflects heavily with my daughter when I can drop her off with no hesitation from her. She happily goes to the teachers and I feel like they really care for her and her well-being. They are as well caring of the parents, by offering conversation every time you are in their presence. This is the kind of relationship that you want when you entrust your child with a child care facility for more hours than they are at home with you. This was the most important thing to me when I was looking for child care and I know I found it in School for Amazing Kids, Calera.
What more can I say? I love that my daughter’s daycare offers this great amenity to parents FREE OF CHARGE. They realize the importance of adult time alone and they offer this for parents who might not otherwise have reliable child care for a date night. When we first heard of PNO, my husband and I were ecstatic that we had somewhere for not only our baby to go, but our oldest daughter to go as well. That’s right. They will even care for the siblings of the children who attend the daycare. All I have to do is make sure that my girls are bathed and feed and they will care for them from 6:45 pm until 10:30 pm which is plenty of time for a movie, dinner or even quiet time alone with your significant other or yourself.
I love that School for Amazing Kids, Calera has such caring teachers that they are willing to spend their Friday evening caring for my children. My oldest, who is 7, enjoys herself so much that she always asks when will the next PNO be. I love how when you drop your kids off they always say, “Have a great time” or “Enjoy yourselves”, it always makes me feel that they are more than happy to care for my daughters without any hesitation and I can always tell that they actually volunteered and were not forced to do it. Besides family, where else can you find reliable, fun and FREE child care for a much needed date night or alone time? Exactly, it doesn’t exist, but it does at School for Amazing Kids, Calera.
When I was searching for a child care facility, before my daughter was born, there were several things that stood to me about School for Amazing Kids, Calera. First, the location was perfect. We are residents of Calera, AL and this was a very convenient location right off of I65, so I could drop my daughter off and get right back on the interstate to head to work. Once I actually took a tour of the school, I knew that much more that it was going to be perfect for little one. I liked how in the baby room, it is divided into 3 areas to assist with their growing needs. I also liked how they will assist you with potty training when that time comes with the little kiddie toilets that they have. They have a nice size and fun-filled playground once they become mobile.
Another thing that was very important in my selection process was the curriculum that they offered in the education of the children. They offer a curriculum that will support the children’s growing mind which in turn will prepare them even more for their transition to Kindergarten. I love the staff and how friendly they are and how much they actually care about the children. They offer various events and things for the kids to participate in. They even offer parent’s night out for FREE for parents who would like some alone time or date night with their significant other which is a plus in my books. This school is just an all-around child care facility and I would not want my daughter to be anywhere but here.
