Testimonials & Reviews



Smart Starters is THE BEST early learning facility in Savannah, hands down.


Eron, Financial Advisor

I am extremely satisfied with Smart Starters. Since my daughter has been attending I have noticed how much she is learning on a daily basis...colors, numbers, letters, "please and thank you" just to name a few and most of this was before she turned 2.


Linton, Therapist

I am extremely pleased with Smart Starters Academy's program of learning. Ms. Chantelle really prepares kids for the classroom in creative ways that boosts their confidence in Math, Reading, Writing, History and socially. Thanks SSA for making it easy for a parent to trust you with a safe, caring and personable environment. SSA you are the BEST!!

Both my husband and I work full time and we use Smart Starters Academy 5 days a week. We like that Ms. Chantelle has a schedule planned. There is also a range of age appropriate activities.

She is also very accommodating...

Tiffany, Teacher

I searched my entire pregnancy for the right daycare for my baby. I viewed MANY daycares and none met my expectations...And my baby absolutely adores Mrs. Hester. The environment is so welcoming, and she is so amazing when it comes to taking care of the kids. I wouldn't want my baby any other daycare! Thank for everything!!!!



Great fit for our son.

Very thankful we found Smart Starters!



We've been using her for over a month and we love her! My daughter seems very happy to be with them. And Ms. Hester is very organized. We love the daily notes. They are very helpful.
