I enrolled my son at Shepherd s Promise 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. Shepherd's Promise 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 daycare for that.

My school is Shepherd's Promise Child Care in Pelham, AL. My children were with another daycare center in Shelby County, which was closing, which prompted our move to Shepherd s Promise. Because my kids had only been with one daycare center previously, I was quite anxious about a transition. The Director, Mrs. Tammi was instrumental in calming my fears by allowing me to meet the teachers, showing me around the facility and answering my questions and concerns. The teachers in 3K & in 4K here have really worked to bring my daughter out of her shell and encouraged her to make new friends and to participate in class, which I really appreciate. I was surprised at how early the curriculum included learning the alphabet, shapes, and colors, which my 2 y/o son really latched on to! I especially enjoy the little extras for parents like the complimentary coffee and a breakfast item for parents as they drop-off their little ones in the morning. These little extras really show how much Shepherd s Promise wants to not only take care of your children, but also the entire family.

Before making the switch to Shepard s Promise we had been sending our son to a local private school. We were not seeing any signs of development further than what we worked with him on at home. When I had talked to people about local day schools that not only provide care and curriculum but safety, many people pointed me to Shepard s Promise. I knew instantly when I walked past the younger class room of babies clapping and saying prayer before lunch this was where we were meant to be. After viewing the room my son would be in and meeting the teachers I had such peace and comfort that my son was going to be loved on and learn so much! He is turning 2 on Saturday and already knows his alphabet visually, numbers, songs he sings to us often and how to use his manners. The teachers always keep me informed on any thing that concerns them or things they know would make my day to hear about. I know they genuinely care for my son not only as a student but as a person who needs a good foundation to set the way for his future. I have full trust in the Staff of Shepard s Promise and feel such joy knowing that he has a place to go each day where he will thrive and do well.

Shepherd's Promise has been such a blessing to us from day one. All of the teachers and staff are genuinely caring and loving with the children. It is easy to tell that they love their jobs and want the best for each individual child. And my daughter comes home from school each day with a smile on her face, always wanting to go back. My husband and I knew from our first visit there that this was the place for our daughter. We visited several other daycares/preschools and they just did not compare. When we walked out after our first visit, my daughter said, 'That's where I wanna go!'. She is starting kindergarten next month, and she keeps asking us if she can come back and see her teachers and friends. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a loving and family-like atmosphere for their child!
