The teachers are very attentive…

The hours that the daycare provides are amazing!  The location is very convenient as it is right off the interstate!  In addition to daily care, they also provide a few extras, such as activities for the kids and date nights for the parents. The infant classes do a lot of art activities and I look forward to all the activities the daycare provides that my child can participate in as they get older.
One aspect my husband and I really enjoy is getting our child’s daily classroom sheet.  It includes all of the bottles/food, diaper changes, and naps from throughout the day.  It really helps us know what to expect once we get home.  The teachers are very attentive and notice immediately if our child seems like they aren’t feeling well or didn’t sleep well.  It’s great having our child surrounded by people that really care about him!

Our child is happy and well-adjusted……

School for Amazing Kids Helena has been a true blessing to our family. For the longest time, we didn’t know it existed because it’s well-hidden off the road! Our family had been attending a sister school “ School for Amazing Kids “ school little further away. We requested a transfer to the Helena location as convenience to our family. BOTH locations were helpful through the transition, and as a bonus, there was NO re-enrollment or transfer fee!

We found the care at SFAK Helena to be kind and cordial, professional, and convenient. The administrators treat you like people instead of number or client. Our child is happy and well-adjusted, dare I even say “rotten” because of the way the staff loves her well while she is in their care! We love School for Amazing Kids and think that you would too!

The Instructors are Very ‘In-Tune’ with the Child…

School for Amazing Kids, Calera is a great facility for children. When you walk in, your child is greeted by name and you go back to their classroom. The instructors are very ‘in tune’ with the child and give a you a report sheet of what happened during the day – nap time, duration; food and how much they ate; what crafts were done; and any special comments for the day. would highly recommend School for Amazing Kids, Calera to any parent looking for a childcare facility.

We have been nothing but pleased.…

Our child has attended School for Amazing Kids, Helena since she was 4 months old. We have been nothing but pleased. Obviously we were very nervous at the start, butSchool for Amazing Kids, Helena has made the transition for my wife starting back to work perfect. The teachers have been so caring and will even let text us text them throughout the day to see how she is doing.

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!

I fully trust the staff at School for Amazing Kids, Pelham…

We currently have three children at School for Amazing Kids, Pelham and I couldn’t imagine them attending anywhere else. From the great teachers to the convenient location, I would consider School for Amazing Kids, Pelham an asset to the community. As someone who works in the field of child advocacy/prevention, I fully trust the staff at School for Amazing Kids, Pelham with my children’s growth and well-being.

I never worried about my kids……

Tina, Dana, and Staff,

Today is my family’s last day at School for Amazing Kids, Helena. I am so grateful for all of the love that Jake and Bailey received here at this little school. I am going to miss you all so much, after all these years here you have become our family. I want you to know that I never worried about my kids while they were here, I always knew that they would be taken care of. I never worried about them falling behind, acting a fool, or being a bad friend because I knew someone would let me know. My babies have grown up here, they are both school age now (that seems soooo crazy) we will never forget all the love that we felt here at School for Amazing Kids, Helena. Both Jake and Bailey loved parents night out, they got to see different teachers and old friends, both of my kids loved water days in the summer, and both of my kids loved getting gummy bears at the end of a good day. I have handmade Christmas ornaments, handprints, and poems to keep as preschool souvenirs but more than that, I have precious memories of their first friends, their first accomplishments, and their first graduation. Thanks just doesn’t seem like enough, but like all families that’s really all we want is to feel appreciated. I know that I didn’t say it enough, but thank you, I would not have wanted to take this journey with anyone else but you. We will always love our School for Amazing Kids, Helena friends, and consider it our honor to have been a part of your family.

Much Love and Gratitude

When my son recently joined our family, there was no question where he would go.…

Our first child started with School for Amazing Kids, Calera when she was 9 months old.  I was a new mom and was not excited about leaving my child with strangers for 10 hours a day.  In addition, my family is not religious, and I’m an atheist, so I was trying to find a secular daycare in my area was next to impossible.  We looked at multiple facilities and ultimately settled on School for Amazing Kids, Calera. 

While I’m not keen about the religious instruction (biblical stories and praying at meals), the facility is always clean and the teachers are well mannered, and trained in early childhood development.   The facilities are kept up-to-date with new equipment and decor.  The directors are always happy to listen to my latest worry or concern about my daughter, her behavior, or the latest news of the day.  Parents are allowed to visit for meals and their adoption of a “parent’s night out” is a treat my husband and I look forward to each month.

My daughter is now 3 and the teachers understand when to introduce structured discipline.  My husband and I have started using the same techniques at home so that my daughter can have consistency and a better understanding of what’s right and wrong.  When my son recently joined our family, there was no question where he would go.

We have had incidents in the past of biting, falls, sickness, etc. and the staff were always prompt in notifying me and informing me of any additional needs they have.  I am completely at ease with my kids being in their care and know that they love them as much as I do.

I would like to see more teachers in the classrooms, but they are following DHR guidelines for adult/child ratios.  However, I understand what that would mean for tuition rates.

My daughter is well cared for, well mannered, well educated, and well socialized (as a 3 year old can be).  And for that, I’m willing to put up with some minor annoyances about religion from time to time.

Thank you School for Amazing Kids, Helena for incorporating FUN into my children’s education…

My children are in daycare to be very well taken care of, start their education and have fun! This center nails each and every point. During the summer the staff takes the children outside for water day once a week. I’ve seen pictures and they all look like they are having a ball. They even have a snow cone truck come out to deliver a treat to the kids. My child knows what day it is and gets so excited when he sees his water shoes! I’m so pleased that the center documents the kids outside since I have to work and can’t be there for every second of his day. Thank you School for Amazing Kids, Helena for incorporating FUN into my children’s education.

It’s like a home away from home for my daughter.…

I absolutely love School for Amazing Kids, Helena! The teachers are great and I feel safe leaving my child on a daily basis. It’s like a home away from home for my daughter. Its is by far the cleanest daycare that I have ever been in! I also love how much my daughter has learned in just over 6 months! I am so very glad we finally found the perfect fit for our family. I would highly recommend them!
