My family LOVES Adventure Child Development Center! The teachers are wonderful and the administration is kind, caring and helpful beyond words. I have 4 children ages: 6mts, 2yrs, 5yrs and 7yrs and all of my children come home happy everyday. My older children talk non stop about their day and can't wait to go back the next day. The classrooms all have phones so I can check on my children throughout the day. The building is secure with a key fob system which is great peach of mind. All of my children brush their teeth everyday and the meals are all very healthy and full of fresh fruits and vegetables. My children (not the baby) go in the gym and outside every day. They are kept active and engaged all day. I just had my parent teacher conferences and I am amazed how far all of them have progressed. I can not say enough about this center!

I am amazed by the love and compassion shown to the children by the staff. The gym is an excellent way to incorporate physical education even when the weather is bad. The key fob door lock links our key fob to our photo upon entering the building. This is top of the line security. Our school aged loves the field trips which include the butterfly pavilion, lakeside, casa Bonita, swimming twice a week and much much more. We love this center and highly recommend it to all Greeley families looking for excellence in child care.

I love this place and more importantly my kiddos love this place!! If I ever have issues I tell the staff and it is fixed almost immediately. Mrs. Maria is the bomb.com!! She has helped my daughter in more ways than I could ever imagine. The staff are all nice and I love walking in there and I love the fact they just got a new security system. Yes they have a few kinks to work out, but they are working with what they have and they all seem to love their jobs. I recommend this place all the time to people!!!! I love the idea that the kiddos have the gym to play in. I know some parents can't afford to put their kids in sports, but this school allows youngsters to practice gymnastics daily! The only thing I would say they could work on would be to have a better program for the school-aged kids. They do great with them, but the kids often seem bored. I'm not sure if it is just my timing on pick ups or what, but that would be my only concern. Other than that, I LOVE ADVENTURE!!!! They have come a long way in the last few years and they can only go up from here. I know you have my help if you ever need it!!

My child had been happily attending this center for years, until recently. For the most part the new staff fails to provide ANY supervision or guidance to the children. I am dumbfounded by the downturn this establishment has made under the new "director" and have pulled my child out of their care.

Do not take your kids here! As a staff member I have seen and heard it all. The new director talks badly about parents and staff members. She as well as some staff lack love and compassion for children, there were very few staff that really loved and cared for the children. Now they are gone due to the drama was caused. The director as well as the owner yell and bad mouth the staff and even in front of parents. A child got hurt at this center and broke a bone, the parents weren't notified until the end of the day. It's ridiculous and NOT a safe place to take your kids!! Wish I could submit this without a star!!

I worked there 2 months and quit due to unprofessional the executive director is. The owner mistreated his staff. I seen him use a tone of voice that no boss should use. Classrooms are over ratio at Times. Children are pushed back and forth throughout the day from classrooms. Parents arrive to pick up there child and front office is always empty. Or they have no clue where exactly child is. There is very few good teachers. That center lacks communication and heart for the children. I would not recommend

I love the teachers but the new director needs to be replaced ASAP! She just let go the person that has been there the longest and honestly the reason why most of us take our children there! This new director has been there for a couple of months and has not even introduced herself to the parents. I myself with several other parents have seen and heard her yelling at the teachers in front of us and the teacher moral is so low right now, I wouldn't be surprised if they all walk out soon. I am so dissapointed in Theo (the owner) that he is allowing all of this go on without intervening. I myself am looking for a new daycare and I know that other parents are as well. The only way that we will stay at this daycare is if this new director leaves.

One of the worst schools in Colorado! The teachers are rude and verbally aggressive with the children. I seriously doubt that any of them have experience or education in child development. They spend most of their time on cell phones or taking to other teacher. The children are left unattended which creates an unsafe environment. They switch around the teachers and children into different classrooms from one day to the next. There are a few good teachers, but not enough to make a difference.

Horrible place. My husband who had never been there was able to walk in grab our daughter without being questioned. Twice I arrived and t h ere was no one at the front desk. The supposed teachers spend more time on their cell phones t h an interacting with the children.

I cannot say enough good this about this center. My children thrive here! The staff is so friendly and they make my children feel loved each day! I cannot express how mauch better my work day is knowing that my children are somewhere that they love. The staff greets my child each day with a smile and my children refuse to leave without giving multiple staff members hugs. They love the gym and I love that the center is constantly holding different functions after hours that allow the parents of everyone in center to meet one another. I could not be happier with the quality of care and the amount of love that my children are getting from this center. The office staff is kind and caring and they understand the issues that arise in our lives and accomidate for this. This center has made our move to Greeley CO a happy time for every member of my family.

All three of my kids love this school, they always have a blast there and the staff is SO friendly. I always know about my kids day and it take me forever to round up my kids to get out of there in the evening because they are always having so much fun! I only gave 4 stars though because I don't like that they have a movie day what seems almost weekly, kids love it, but when my kids are at school/daycare I want them playing and interacting with other kids and staying active. Th facility is older, and I am not sure they have AC there, my kids have not gone in the summer because I am a teacher but my kids have never complained about the toys or other equipment. They also have a huge gym the kids get to play in and they LOVE it!

I am constantly finding my child in a different room. When I ask the front office where my child is they can not answer.The center needs to work on stability. I do not know who my child's teach is or which classroom he belongs in. When I ask the front office about this situation I was told " they will move them all day long if they have to." I have walked in numerous times without being acknowledged. All doors are open,therefore I could pick up a child at any moment and leave unnoticed. I was extremely tired of walking in and hearing the gossip of the day and the staff talking about one another.

I love Adventure!!! The staff are great and if I have a concern with my children they always address it immediately. (The concerns are with the other children who obviously have very little supervision at home.) The front desk staff is very nice, and I love the fact that my children still have a place to play when it is cold outside. The gyms are great. I am happy with my choice to bring my children here.

Horrible, Horrible, Horrible! DO NOT send your children here. It is out dated and the staff is very negative towards children. They also leave rooms out of ratio a lot of the time, which is a HUGE problem. There are no keys or locks on the doors or staff members usually in the office so anybody can come and go as they please.

I am very pleased with the new changes at ACDC! The rooms are looking great. The staff is always willing to help with the needs of my children. My children enjoy the before and after school program. Also the new help in front is very pleasant to speak with and helpful with the issues that I feel need to be addressed.

This center has some awesome teachers and is a very clean center. As for the Asst. Director they can do without. She isnt friendly at all and dont know really how to deal with parents. but i would recomemmend this center just for the teachers!

If I could give This center a negative rating I would! There were a couple of teachers that really cared about what was best for the children but for the most part I was disappointed in the service. Most of the time I had to deal with the assistant director, whom was unpleasant on both a professional and personal level. They made me feel like my child was not welcome there and I felt horrible leaving them while I went to work. There are plenty of other child care centers in the Greeley area that I would recommend over Adventure Care in a second!
