Ardent Preschool & Daycare awarded after rebranding


Ardent Preschool & Daycare was recently voted best in two categories (Preschool and Daycare) in the 2019 Best of Birmingham poll.

The recognition, along with two others this year, come seven months after the company re-branded.

Marketing Manager Tamara Harrelson said Ardent’s desire to continually set standards and exceed expectations sets the stage for a childcare experience that families want to be a part of.

“Best thing we ever did! So much to love—wonderful facilities, great Bible studies and educational program, friendly and happy staff, superior food program and I could go on and on. Most of all, my kids love it! I love to hear about everything they learned at the end of each day and their love of God that grows with each day,” said Denise M., a parent at Ardent Preschool of Greystone.

Other awards in 2019 included a Best Preschool and Top-Rated Local in other polls.

“Our promise to our parents is to pursue excellence in all areas to make the Ardent childcare experience an investment that parents (and their children) can’t afford to miss,” said Tracy LaBreche, chief implementation officer at Ardent Preschool.

Ardent will open its sixth campus, Patchwork Farms in Vestavia Hills, this winter and already has families pre-enrolled and excited to attend the new innovative building design that features 18 large classrooms, an infant courtyard, a covered patio and splash pad. The purposeful design has natural light filling each space within the building.

This building design was previously constructed in July of 2018 with the Greystone location at 6801 Tattersall Way in Hoover.

The awards received by the newly re-branded childcare company demonstrate that Ardent Preschool & Daycare is holding true to their commitment of “setting standards and exceeding expectations,” Harrelson said and added that these standards are quickly noticed in their classrooms and professional yet fun approach to the early childhood experience.
