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!

Teachers who I knew truly CARED for them…

Both of my daughters have attended School for Amazing Kids, Pelham since 2009, and satisfied does not begin to describe how happy we have been with our experience! The constant throughout these past six years has been Melissa Greer. She took care of my youngest in the infant room and the relief I felt leaving my child with teachers who I knew truly CARED for them made it possible for me to go to work guilt free! Over the years, all of the teachers have been great, but Melissa has been the leader among the rest of the staff the entire time! The night of the snowstorm in 2014, she took my daughter home along with her own children ( and others whose families could not reach them) and kept them safe and happy until we could get to them. That is care that you just don’t see every day. Melissa is always there to greet the other parents and is a great example of the environment at School for Amazing Kids, Pelham. My daughter is graduating from 4K this spring and our departure from SP will be a sad day for us, but I would highly recommend to ANYONE looking for quality child care in the Shelby County area, to go by School for Amazing Kids, Pelham and enroll your children there. Melissa started us off right, and while my children moved out of her class, we always knew that she was there to give a “mother’s touch” in my absence. WE LOVE SP!!!!!

Never in the past 6 years have we worried…

Many of our little babes have gone thru the School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly.  Our last 2 there are in the twos and 4K. They both have bad asthma.  As parents we worry anyway when we are away from our children, but never in the past 6 years have we worried about the love and care our kids get while they’re in your hands.  It takes parents, village, God and the School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly.  My deepest appreciation to all of you.

I see evidence daily that she is well taken care of…

My family has been nothing but happy with the care our daughter has received at School for Amazing Kids, Helena. I see evidence daily that she is well taken care of and loved by the entire staff. Staff members that don’t have daily contact with her know her name and speak to her when we pass them in the hall or office. I have seen her learning development grow by leaps and bounds since she started at School for Amazing Kids, Helena a year ago. She loves her teachers and is happy to go to school every day. The toddler program is run like a kindergarten class and I closely compare it to my older daughter’s kindergarten experience.

They truly do make you feel like part of a family.…

My wife and I were trying to find a well-respected, safe, and highly recommended daycare for our 3-month-old. We checked online reviews and asked as many people as we could in order to find the best place for our baby boy. School for Amazing Kids, Pelham was the overwhelmingly popular choice.They truly do make you feel like part of a family. They take wonderful care of each child as if they were their own. They have a fun learning environment for the kids and communicate with parents daily according to each child’s specific needs and development. Any concerns that my wife and I had before enrollment at School for Amazing Kids, Pelham have quickly been erased due to the outstanding care and professionalism of the staff.

I would not trust my precious angels to anyone else…

Joseph and I just wanted to say, “thank you” for the help you provide our children.  They all have a need to be loved by special people and that’s why we chose the School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly. Thank you!

We never wonder about the quality of care and nurture that they’re receiving when we leave them in your care.  At home, we provide a loving environment and somehow the teachers at the School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly are able to seamlessly continue it.  I feel peace within my heart each time I place them in the care of your staff.  Beyond knowing your staff on a professional level, I also know many of them on a personal level.  I would not trust my precious angels to anyone else but Madeleine, Amanda and your staff!

We have never worried about him…

School for Amazing Kids, Helena is a GREAT day care! We have been sending our son there since he was 3 months old, and we can’t imagine sending him anywhere else. Everyone there really cares about him, and we have NEVER worried about him. The facilities are very clean and safe. The safety measures in place really make me feel comfortable. My son loves going there and he loves all of the teachers.

They are definitely the best daycare in the Helena area.…

I’ve had my son at School for Amazing Kids, Helena for about a year and a half now and it’s been a blast! All of the teachers are very nice and easy to get along with. When we had the big freeze last year, School for Amazing Kids, Helena didn’t miss a beat keeping everyone updated and letting everyone know that their kids are safe and to not worry, they are all snuggled up and warm. They are definitely the best daycare in the Helena area.

School for Amazing Kids, Calera has exceeded our expectations…

School for Amazing Kids, Calera is a great childcare facility. There is a low turnover rate among the staff. My wife and I were very picky in choosing a daycare and the School for Amazing Kids has exceeded our expectations. They have a solid communication system for keeping in contact with us because of a weather closing etc. School for Amazing Kids, Calera is a safe and secure facility, we can tell that they really care about our child.
