My daughter attended GMLA for about eight months. During that time, she was in both the infant and toddler rooms, and we had a wonderful experience with all the staff. She enjoyed her time there and was very well taken care of. The staff was friendly and communicated well with us! We only left because we moved our daughter closer to home.

We have had a positive experience with Growing Minds. Miss Audrey, Miss Jacky, and Miss Angela have been there since we started three years ago, and they are all absolutely wonderful people! I appreciate that they have yoga and music teachers come in and that they have themed days like Splash Day and holiday parties. It's also very nice that they provide breakfast and lunch.

Our experience at Growing Minds Learning Academy has been top-notch! Our child has been very happy in their infant classes. Our child is treated and cared for with the utmost kindness and attention; the teachers and administrative staff also provide excellent enrichment and experiences. I recommend Growing Minds if you are looking for childcare in the Gunbarrel/Boulder/Niwot areas!

My infant daughter attends Growing Minds Academy. They all love my daughter and are so good to her. Ms. Martha and Ms. Johnna are cleaning every morning I arrive. I visited every available infant care center in Boulder and Longmont, and this was one of the only ones I would trust with my daughter. I hope the other review is removed, as it cannot be further from the truth.

They truly care about the students at this facility and are passionate about their jobs. I have had a wonderful experience at Growing Minds Academy.

I can't speak any more highly of Growing Minds Learning Academy. Miss Alissa and her staff have been wonderful; their facilities are top-notch, bright, and colorful. My toddler has learned so much and looks forward to going every day. We searched and searched for quality child care before finding Growing Minds Learning Academy. They are 5 Stars all the way!

My son started at Growing Minds Learning Academy in 2021 as an infant. My husband and I have been so happy with his care. All the teachers, admin, and support staff are friendly and communicate well with us. We love the app they use, which allows us to get pictures and real-time updates on naps, food, and diaper changes. We just had our second baby and know she will be in a safe and loving environment when she starts in a few months!

Our daughter, now 3, has been thriving at Growing Minds. She's learned so much, including how to interact with other kids and teachers, new words, music, games, and experiences. They provide breakfast, lunch, and a snack each day and run from 7:30 am-5:30 pm. The staff and management have been super responsive to our needs and are full of good advice we've used at home. We're grateful to have found this daycare, and we know our daughter will be super ready for kindergarten when that day comes!

I have had a positive experience with Growing Minds Learning Academy. My baby started when he turned nine months old and stayed there until he turned 15 months old. One of the hardest things in my life was returning to work after having a baby, but their lovely teachers made everything so much easier. Now, we moved far from Gunbarrel and had to move him, but I will highly recommend it. I also liked using their phone app to connect and check in on my child.

My daughter has been attending Growing Minds for two years. Her teachers have been wonderful! All have been kind and caring, always looking out for what is best for my kid. They are very good at communicating her needs, and I always look to them for advice. Come October, we will be sending our second daughter here as well!
