School for Amazing Kids, Calera is a learning center, not a day care.…

School for Amazing Kids, Calera Child Care is the best center in Calera or the Birmingham area to send your child. The staff is amazing and the curriculum is top notch. Anybody can watch your child for you . However, School for Amazing Kids is a learning center, not a day care. This is one of many reasons why they are the best. Our son is in the 2 year old class and we have been quite impressed with “circle time”. It is very structured but fun for the kids. This is done daily in his class. He has been attending the center for one month. After a week he came home and counted to 15 for us. It is so exciting to watch your child develop before your eyes . While we love everything about School for Amazing Kids, Calera, the curriculum ranks towards the top.

At 21 months my daughter knows her alphabets……

My daughter has been going to School for Amazing Kids, Pelham for almost 2 years and from 6 weeks old until now and I have gotten a daily report that tells me what and how much she ate, how many dirty diapers she had and a daily activity. They also give a weekly menu so you know what the kids will have the following week.

At 21 months my daughter knows her alphabets and can recognize them in words and also counts to 10. The curriculum is age appropriate in each class she has moved to and the teaching reinforces what we teach her at home. The child to teacher ratio is better than any other place I visited and the administration is always willing to address any concerns I have immediately.

I wanted to write a review on this site because of the one other review that I saw listed that was posted in 2012 but I’m sure people are still reading it and I wanted to give a review of my experience from 2014 to current. I have never taken the time to give a review but I read them before I make decision to go to a movie, restaurant, hotel, buy a product and most of all when I was looking for a childcare facility. Reviews are important to me when I shop around but I never take the time to give a review good or bad. School for Amazing Kids, Pelham cares enough to offer an incentive program to encourage parents to write reviews so that it helps parents like I was have something to use to help determine if they want to come and visit the center for more information or not. They ask us to be honest and the incentive is not based on what we write but to show that they appreciate their parents for taking the time to write a review. In my case as much as I love the care my baby gets I would have never taken the time to write a review but I always take the time to read them.

She now looks forward to going everyday……

I have nothing but good things to say about School for Amazing Kids, Helena. My 3-year-old daughter started there about 8 months ago. I had been a stay at home mom with her ever since she was born. It was so hard taking her and leaving for the first time. The staff at School for Amazing Kids, Helena not only made it easier for me but for my daughter as well. I know that when my child is there they are doing everything in their power to make sure that she is safe and taken care of. She now looks forward to going everyday and seeing Ms. Joyous and the rest of the staff! We love School for Amazing Kids, Helena!

Keeping the entire family in mind is the secret of why School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly stands out from other daycares…

Since Nov 1998, when my first child was 8 weeks old, I’ve pulled into the parking lot, faithfully, 5 days a week. Quite often I’ve been asked why…why am I so loyal to School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly?

They treat each child special…

This was going to be my daughter’s 3rd daycare and having had two horrible experiences i was very hard on them at first. The staff and directors alike eased my mind, the directors are very hands on. Every time i call they have answers to my many questions. The teachers are very nice and friendly they encourage parents to volunteer and they treat each child special and build confidence and self esteem.

I feel like my kids are in a good place…

We have two children at School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly and I couldn’t be any happier with our choice. The staff is warm and friendly and I feel like my kids are in a good place when we drop them off in the morning. They provide us with daily information on how the children are doing as well as progress reports throughout the year. The facilities are always maintained and clean. They also provide additional extracurricular activities for the kids at various times through the year. Most importantly our kids genuinely love being there. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for child care.

Overall, the daycare gets an A in my book!…

My son has been attending School for Amazing Kids, Pelham for 2 years now and we absolutely love it. The moment we entered the door, we knew this was the place for us. The staff were friendly and made us feel very welcome.

I don’t have anything negative to say about the daycare; however, the only critique I would give is giving the parents a passcode to enter the classroom areas. When I first had my son, the company I worked for offered transition care for the first 6 months of me returning to work and the facility’s entrance was also secured with a passcode. The only people provided with a passcode were the staff and parents. It was really convenient as if I wanted to stop by and check on my son, I could enter the classroom at any time. I find it to be sometimes a major inconvenience when we have to wait up front for the door to be answered. There are times when I ring the doorbell and it’s not heard so I end up waiting until a staff member walks into the lobby. This can be a little irritating when caught in the hustle of bustle of trying to get to work in the mornings. I don’t understand why parents aren’t allowed the passcode to enter. Additionally, my son’s former transitional care facility would change the passcode every few months and would distribute the new passcode to the parents.

Lastly, I think it’ll be cool to receive a monthly or quarterly newsletter of “What’s Happening” with the school. Including a calendar would also be helpful. This not only would cut down on resources, but it’ll help us stay informed of school news and/or events much easier. For the most part, I throw paper away. If we received an email of events, upcoming parties, etc. It definitely would streamline communication and keep us better informed of happenings at Pelham.

Overall, the daycare gets an A in my book!

Your passionate visionary character is infectious!…
Good Morning Katie!
I hope your day is proving to be a productive and promising one.  I just wanted to take time to say how grateful I am to you and your commitment to care for little ones with such excellence. Your passionate visionary character is infectious! How can anyone not be the same when they are around you?!
The afternoon Kristen and I came to visit your center, God gave me an impactful verse to focus on that day: Psalm 27:13 – “I would have lost heart if I had not believed that I would see the goodness of The Lord in the land of the living.”  I truly believed God would provide for my daughter and her family, that He would make a way for my grandchildren to be card for with excellence.  You and your center are indeed, “the goodness of The Lord in the land of the living” – our future generations and a true answer to my prayers.
I wish you well in all your endeavors for Christ, as you pursue your vision and goals for the center. If I can be of any assistance, please don’t hesitate to call on me.
