I am completely in love with the care that my child gets at School for Amazing Kids, Helena.…

From the time I walked through the door atSchool for Amazing Kids, Helena I felt like a lost child that made it home. The Director and Co-director were so welcoming to me. My first time talking to Tina Logan she was very real and straight forward with me. She answered all of the questions I had for her. She made sure that she told me that if I had any question while on the tour to feel free to ask them. I am a first time parent with a child in daycare for the first time, so this was a somewhat emotional day. My child had been home with her grandmother for the first year-and-a-half of her life. I was SO worried! Would she adjust well? Would she know how to play with the other kids and share the attention? Would she be able to understand the new schedule she would be on? These are all questions that filled my mind! I was so nervous until I met her fantastic teachers! They assured me that she would do fine and that they would work with her until she felt comfortable. The amount of patience and time they invested in her was remarkable! I could call at any time that I wanted and I thought that was really reassuring. I am completely in love with the care that my child gets at School for Amazing Kids, Helena and I would highly recommend it to anyone who asked me. School for Amazing Kids, Helena makes you feel like more than just a daycare center they make you feel like part of their family!

Thank you for loving our son like he is your own child!…

We are so thankful for the School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly in our family’s life.  We were very hesitant to put our son in a daycare environment, but just after a week, we knew that we had made the right choice by choosing the School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly.  Our son had been in home daycare since birth and entered the School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly 2 months before he turned 3.  We are highly impressed with the instruction and structure of his classroom.  He is growing intellectually, socially, and spiritually, through the loving, caring, and  nurturing environment that the School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly provides.  I will never forget when we started to pray before our Thanksgiving meal and he just started saying, “God our father, God our father.”  This is when we knew in our hearts and minds we had made the right choice for our son!  Thank you for loving our son like he is your own child!

My Boys Have Enjoyed Going to School Each Day…

I have to say that knowing that my boys have enjoyed going to “school” each day makes it much easier for me.School for Amazing Kids, Helena has been a great place for them to go on a day to day basis. They have become well known around the daycare with teachers that are not even theirs. It makes me feel confident, as a mother, knowing they have so many looking out for and teaching them.

I would like to particularly thank Mrs. Sharon and Miss Nicole for dealing with my little one as he transitioned through his tough times as an infant. You two are the BEST, and Colsen still LOVES you both! Now, he gets to give Miss Jamie a run for her money! Chase is just friends with everyone, and he loves everyone there, and they LOVE him too! I appreciate all that everyone does for us and our boys! AND the DATE NIGHTS are the BOMB!

Thanks to Ms. Tina and Mr. Case and everyone there.

I absolutely love how awesome the teachers are with the kids.…

For parents who are looking for a daycare, School for Amazing Kids, Pelham is absolutely the best. I love how secure the facility is which put my mind at ease as well as my husband’s. I absolutely love how awesome the teachers are with the kids. My son comes home happy everyday which let my husband and I know he is in good hands.Every morning, either me or my husband are greeted with a smile and as soon as we enter our son’s classroom, his teachers are ready to play with him! We couldn’t be more pleased with how our son has progressed since attending this school.Every day, the teachers have activities for the kids to participate in which is great! I love how active they are with the kids! That was a winner for us! Our son continue to attend the school until it is time for him to start kindergarten!

This school really is full of AMAZING kids and teachers!…

This school really is full of AMAZING kids and teachers! It may not be super shiny and new, but the quality of care and education is way more than you might get somewhere else. My daughter is 5 years old and my son is 2 years old, and this is the only school they have ever known, and we love it! Several of my friends have ended up switching their kids from another daycare to one of the SFAK locations! The Helena location is wonderful and we absolutely adore the staff. They know our family so well and are really easy to communicate with. What i really love about SFAK, Helena is that the same teachers that have taught my daughter are teaching my son, so I have already built a relationship with them. Over the years, I was even able to get to know the teachers that my daughter would have before she even had them, because the staff is so friendly. My kids are stimulated daily and get great exercise on the playground. These kids are taught exactly what they need to know for their age groups. I am amazed constantly at how much my children are learning, and I am confident about my daughter starting Kindergarten next year!

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!!!!!

She was waking me up saying it was time to go to school…

When I first called the School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly in search of childcare I was driving an hour out of the way each day just so I could keep my daughter in the same place. I knew I needed a facility that was closer but had reservations about switching because I didn’t want to uproot my daughter from where she was (even though I wasn’t especially pleased with their staff or the progress my daughter had made) but the staff at the School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly made the transition the easiest ever. It wasn’t 2 weeks before she was using the potty on her own and she had been potty training at her previous daycare for 6 months. For the first time, she was waking me up saying it was time to go to school and play with her friends. It was a pleasure as a parent to finally see her interested in learning and enjoying being around others her age. I couldn’t imagine her getting any better care than what she gets there. The staff treats all their kids like they were their own. They truly set a standard for childcare!!

A tender moment and a heart full of peace as I left to go to work…

I am just so thankful for the School for Amazing Kids, Weatherly in our family. It is a great feeling to be able to come to work knowing that my son is being loved and nurtured while I am away from him. This morning I dropped him off and as usual, it took me 10 minutes to get him through the front door because he was greeting everyone. Then as soon as Ms. Shea came into sight he started jumping up and down. A tender moment and a heart full of peace as I left to go to work! Thanks for all that you do!

The Staff is Outstanding in Providing a Sense of Family…

I greatly appreciate the mandatory hand sanitizing policy. The staff is outstanding in providing a sense of family. The staff is very welcoming and this is extremely important especially to first time parents to know that your child is in good hands. Milli in infant 1 is exceptional!
