About Adventure Academy

Adventure Academy is an Early Childhood Education Center on the Community Hospital campus. We serve children ages 6 weeks to 6 years old.

Adventure Academy is important because it will allow Community Hospital to provide high-quality childcare to it’s employees and the surrounding area.

With our progressive and holistic early childhood education philosophy, we understand that each child has unique needs and interests. We provide the environment and tools your child needs to thrive to the best of their abilities.

When we expose children to different environments and various learning experiences, we allow them to explore their self-awareness and gain a sense of the world around them. Once they leave Adventure Academy, they’re fully prepared for the next stage of their young lives.

Through the incredible vision of the leadership team at Community Hospital, and the generosity of our community, we have been given the opportunity to build and create a state-of-the-art childcare center. Adventure Academy will provide high quality childcare services primarily to the employees of Community Hospital, but slots will be available to families throughout Mesa County.

Our stunning center will feature 8 classrooms, a full commercial kitchen, 3 playgrounds, staff break and training areas, a nursing room and many other features to support a high quality early childhood education center.

In addition to a state-of-the-art facility, our center will utilize an evidence-based curriculum called "Creative Curriculum." The Creative Curriculum is play based and offers choices to encourage flexibility for both children and teachers. All components of the curriculum are supported by research conducted by early childhood theorists.

Adventure Academy's mission is to create an exploratory atmosphere where young minds can discover, learn and grow in a safe high quality childcare environment which is invested in our community.

We envision the center as a child-centric experience immersed with compassion, integrity and safety. We are dedicated to a warm and caring atmosphere where children are encouraged to develop at their own pace as the center's staff excel in their quality focused services.

Adventure Academy will offer 100 new childcare slots, resulting in the creation of over 20 new jobs for our community. We are proud to provide a living wage, and a career pathway for individuals who have a passion for early childhood education.

As the operator of Adventure Academy, I am committed and dedicated to operating a safe, reliable, high quality childcare center which will be the center of choice for families and the employer of choice for early childhood education.

I have a passion for the sustainability and growth of childcare centers in our state. Adventure Academy will be a staple in our community that will help serve families for many years to come.

At Adventure Academy we are building the future, one adventure at a time!
