She has Absolutely Thrived in their Care…

I consider myself to be a very thorough and detailed critic of childcare centers as I worked in a center throughout college, so am intimately aware of the criteria and parameters required by a center and feel confident my child is receiving good care at School for Amazing Kids, Calera. She has been enrolled since she was three months old (now 16 months) and has absolutely thrived in their care. Her development is consistently above average, I believe, in large part too, the structure she receives and the positive learning environment she is exposed to with the other children and teachers.

Most encouraging, however, is her excitement to go to school. I find it extremely comforting as a parent to see her happy and excited to see her teachers and friends, and not frightened or upset to be left. She spends such a majority of her time through the week with them that should I not feel 100% confident in their abilities I would be unable to leave my child in their care – thus this is a glowing endorsement of their capabilities and our appreciation for all the employees at the center as well.

The kids are well above their peers to begin Kindergarten.…

The School for Amazing Kids, Helena should rightfully be named the Amazing School for Kids! I have experienced child care and early childhood education, internationally; I have enrolled my kids collectively in Montessori and other highly rated private programs. I can relay without reservation; the experience I have with SFAK, Helena, is the best by far. This can be measured on a day to day basis. The lesson plans are well thought out and put together for parents review; evaluations done on the Pre-K students, in my opinion, are stellar. The kids are well above their peers to begin Kindergarten. I see this first hand and hear about it from several educators. Parents, do not overlook the SFAK, Helena, for child care and early educational development of your children, you will be glad you did.

Best childcare in our area!!…

My two children attend School for Amazing Kids, Helena and I absolutely would not think of sending them anywhere else. The staff treats us like family and I know my children are safe and secure when I leave them, even if its overnight during a snow storm! I am very thankful for the teachers and staff who implement an age appropriate curriculum for each child and truly care for them, I would definitely recommend them to everyone!!!

I Never Once Worried…

I never once worried about Dylan’s safety or the care he was receiving. All of you are exceptional, and I know Dylan has learned so much in the time he has been at School for Amazing Kids, Calera. He loves it here, and I know he will miss his friends and teachers. Thank you again for all you do.

Thank you for helping to care for my son!…

Being a new mother, I was terrified to return to work after my maternity leave. I didn’t know who would be taking care of my son. My mother helped to take care of him for six weeks after I returned to work to help make the adjustment with a child easier. I was looking for a childcare place that I would love and felt safe for him to be at while I was working. I found the School for Amazing Kids in Helena and checked them out. The teachers in the Infant 1 class make my little boy smile every day and make his safety a top priority! Thank you for helping to care for my son! If you are looking for childcare, the School for Amazing Kids in Helena is the place!!!

There has NEVER been any request or question that was not fulfilled to the fullest…

There has NEVER been any request or question that was not fulfilled to the fullest. I have absolutely no hesitation in talking to my child’s teacher or the front office. This is invaluable to us.

Caring Staff…

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.

I know he will be completely ready for kindergarten…

I enrolled my son at  School for Amazing Kids, Pelham when he turned one and he is now in pre-K. I have loved his teachers in all his classrooms and the directors. They are always willing to talk through any issues and I know they truly love working with children. They have a great security system, with the fingerprint ID and a sign-in/out sheet. They are also very organized and the cost is reasonable. I also love the learning activities! I am amazed at how much my son has learned. I know he will be completely ready for kindergarten. School for Amazing Kids, Pelham offers lots of extra activities too, like snowcone truck in the summer or designating days as Superhero day or pajama day (my son’s favorites). This keeps the kids looking forward to each day. And I love the artwork they make for moms and dads, and activities like Star Student each week, a different child. Their classmates get to learn about each other that way. I know that I made the right choice putting my child in daycare/pre-K because my son’s social skills are amazing. Everywhere we go, to a park or whatever, he makes friends. I thank School for Amazing Kids, Pelham for that.

Preparing the children for kindergarten in a structured environment…

My daughter is starting in kindergarten next month and she has attended both 3k and 4k at the School for Amazing Kids, Pelham. It’s difficult to find a daycare/preschool that has both compassion and academic excellence, but they do! The teachers are focused on preparing the children for kindergarten in a structured environment. While academic excellence is a focus, the teachers and staff also make each day fun and exciting for the children. They provide a monthly parents’ night out (for siblings as well) for free and consistently have themes and fun days for the children. My daughter just loves it! This place is a winner!
