Hear What Parents Have To Say...

"Creative Learning Academy is a great day care center"
Read More
My son has been enrolled there for the last two years, and I am extremely grateful for the wonderful job all the teachers have done in caring for him while I am at work. All of the teachers are very caring, and have a great sense of each child’s individual needs. An added bonus is that many of the teachers are bilingual, and so my son is learning words in English and Spanish.

"My child and I absolutely love Creative Learning Academy!"

The facility is clean, large, and well-stocked with toys and ample learning materials. The outdoor play area is filled with a variety of equipment and engaging landscapes (hills with sliding options, plenty of age-appropriate playground toys, etc.) and the children also benefit from frequent walks along the natural surroundings of the academy, but it is the teachers and staff who truly make this day care / preschool exceptional!

"BEST Day care you can find in Utah. Jess and all of the teachers are so amazing with all of the children"
Read More
They truly care for all of them. They DO actually feed the kids real meals, they take regular naps AND they even give them water to drink many times a day! I work just a few seconds up the road, so popping in now and then is something I can easily do, and the teachers are acting the same way with the kids as they do when they know I am coming.

"Jessica has turned the entire dynamic of this center around to be one of the most enjoyable experiences for our entire family"

Not only did my son enjoy being at school, but he would talk about what they LEARNED in school with such excitement everyday. They would have music class, trips to the gym, special dress-up days, picnic days, and the list goes on and on. They even allowed us to do a presentation for my son’s class about his younger brother who has special needs. My son is also a picky eater, yet he loved lunches there, as well as the healthy snacks they provided. He would insist that we go to Costco to get some hummus and wheels of cheese for snacks at home.

"This is the best daycare for your kids. "

They have fantastic teachers who love and appreciate what they do. They have an amazing menu compared to other daycares I’ve seen. The kids are always excited and filled with joy when they get there. I enjoy this daycare and highly recommend it.

"The tour was amazing and now my son is having a great day. "

I've sadly been to my fair share of child care locations, in and out of home. This place has by far exceeded my expectations. The tour was amazing and now my son is having a great day, playing and learning and actually taking his nap instead of crying because he wants to come home. As a parent, nothing is more relieving then knowing your kid is finally comfortable and doesn't feel scared or alone. Thank you CLA. Coming to you is the best decision I could've made.

"CLA has been a great place for us. "
Read More
My child has been attending CLA since she was 3 months' old, and we've always felt that she is really loved and cared for there. We get a little jealous because she seems to like her teachers better than us sometimes. 😉 We appreciate the great relationships the teachers and administration have built with the kids, as well as us parents. CLA has been a great place for us.

"The teachers are warm, friendly, and truly love their students!!!"

They are reliable and highly responsive to any and all communication, listen to our concerns, and are knowledgeable about what’s best for kids. In addition to a loving and friendly atmosphere, our 17 month old child’s language and social development is increasing at a rapid rate—her vocabulary includes both Spanish and English words, she knows how to clean up, and eats with utensils which they reinforce at meal times. I have recommended CLA to multiple friends and will continue to do so. We feel lucky to have CLA as part of our village.
