Enhancing Extracurricular Activities

At Ardent, we are committed to ensuring that every child not only grows individually but also flourishes socially. To enhance this development, we provide a selection of optional extracurricular activities for a small fee. We bring in skilled external instructors to provide lessons in soccer, dance, and karate, offering a convenient and enriching option for the families we are privileged to serve.

Yes! We help potty train.

Potty training is a team effort between our staff and families. We want to help children gain independence, and the first step of that is learning to use the potty all by themselves. We start potty training at 2 years old.

My 2 year old son looks forward to going to school each day and is learning very quickly. The teachers and staff are friendly and attentive, and the facilities are extremely nice offering several covered playgrounds. We are very happy at Ardent Redstone!

The transition to Ardent as a new mom has given me so much peace! I always feel comfortable leaving my child there knowing the teachers care so much about the children in their rooms. We have truly been blessed to find such a great environment for our little one.

Niki VanderBoom

We LOVE Ardent! Wouldn’t trust anyone else with my children’s care. They have learned SO much since starting there a year ago.

Maggie Collins

We absolutely love Ardent at Clift Farms! The curriculum and the pace the children learn is great and they have plenty of time to play and learn. Our favorite thing about Ardent is the staff and teachers. They make this experience seamless for our son every day. Our son Caiden lights up every morning when he sees his teacher Mrs. Toisha. She has so much patience and makes learning fun for the students. Couldn’t ask for a better place for our children to spend their time during the days. Can’t wait for our daughter to start in the new year!!!

Julie McKinley

You will not find better early childhood education for your child in the Birmingham area! It is simply an opportunity that families cannot afford to miss!

Katie Frew

My grandchildren have been with Ardent for three years and we are so pleased with the love and attention they are shown.

Teresa Maddux

We have been to a few different daycares in the area due to moves and Ardent is by far our favorite one!! The staff is so friendly and truly cares about each child. I also love the schedule that each classroom has & how structured their days are!

Sarah Grace Stevens

Ardent is an amazing school! My boys have grown and developed tremendously in our time here! Cannot thank them enough for the investment they have made in my kids and continue to do so!

Mary Elizabeth Goodrich

We love Ardent Preschool and Daycare! My daughter started here when she was 2 and now she is 4. We have loved every single minute she’s spent here since then. We know she is safe, loved, and well taken care of when we drop her off everyday. The cleanliness and the curriculum are both TOP TIER. We can’t say enough good things about Ardent!

Madi Lee

We love Ardent! The class is very structured, organized and the teachers make learning fun! Everyday my child is so excited to tell me what she learned and shares stories and songs about Jesus. We’re so thankful for this foundation!

Coley Robichaux

We have called Ardent Trace Crossings our “family” from infant 1 to PreK and are sad this is our last year there. From the teachers and staff to classroom friends and the curriculum, Ardent has been a wonderful fit for us. We have enjoyed our time at this school and will miss the friendships, field trips, and extras Ardent provides. Bonus: if you have a peanut allergy baby, Ardent is a nut-free faculty and have worked with me on keeping my girl safe! 5 stars from me!!

Wendy Johnson

I don’t have enough great things to say about Ardent Trace Crossings and our experience. Our daughter has been attending for almost a year and their childcare has been invaluable to us. The tough transition back to work was made exponentially easier after watching her thrive here. Everyone you come in contact with is friendly, caring, and always helpful. I would recommend to everyone needing top notch childcare.

Elizabeth Carroll

My son goes here, and I’ve enjoyed many things about this daycare but most of all the fact that they give you constant updates on feedings, naps and diaper changes/ bathroom breaks. 100% recommend

Dustin Thompson

I can’t say enough great things about Ardent JV. I am very fortunate that our daughter can go somewhere for school that not only cares about teaching her, but also about loving her.
