Default Logo Design Critique, Need Your Input

I've mentioned before about re-branding my daycare. I want to update my current logo (my avatar).to something newer and fresh. I've made different styles and wanted your input. Some have my daycare name and some just with my name (possibility of using my name as my brand).

There is one in particular that I like but I'll keep it to myself and see which one you all like best/worst/could use tweaking.

I want my business name to be a part of my logo and will be using it in everything including business cards, print, website etc so it has to be able to transfer well from color to black and white for print.

So what do you think? All opinions welcome.

Nice job. I like #6 and #9. On #6, you could even use one hand image box and use the other three boxes for your three words.

I'm with Michael here, photos #6 (4th photo) and 9 (7th photo). I guess we both have business minds. I also like photo #14 (9th photo), but it won't look as nice in b&w.

The others are nice, but those 3 are my favorites.

You did a really great job with all of those.

I think with the name helping hands there is an expectation of a hand in the logo.... plus it's so fitting for child care. With that said I like #6 best - the others with the hand don't speak to me.

Without the hand and my second choice would be #7 HHC is a nice clean look. With just your name I like the cursive version.

Also, the numbers I gave you were the picture numbers when you click on them. Not their order. So; 3.jpg, 6.jpg and 9.jpg

I like the one shaped like a house in the first set and the middle one on the next set.

I like #6 and the first one of your second post, #6 being my favorite. Although I am unsure how they would look B&W.

#6 which most everyone seems to like the most is my favorite also. Here it is in black and white. I think it still works well.
I like that its a home so it's fitting to my family child care home and it still has the hand print which ties it to my business name.
I had a chimney on the house but I like it better without it, and I don't really have a chimney so ... lol.

It does look nice doesn't it
The color one will only go on my website, business cards and social media pages, black and white will be for print so pretty much everything else.

New color palette ... check
New typography ... check
New logo ... check
New website ... next!

I like 6.jpg in the first set--the one with three hands. Also 3.pg and 9.jpg.

Some of the other ones look very clinical to me, whereas that one looks more warm and inviting--which people want for their children.

Yes, I am wondering if we are all talking about the same thing.
