Welcome to the Creative Learning Academy family! My name is Jessica Lloyd, and my husband Spencer and I are the proud owners of CLA. We met in our undergraduate program and both worked as Music Therapists for a time before he went on to earn his Master’s in Social Work and I in Business Administration.
I grew up in a home where learning was valued, expected, and dreams were honored. After considering leaving the Early Childhood Education field to further my education, I opted to stay and create something unique for my own children. We founded Creative Learning Academy of Utah in July 2015.
We now have three little girls of our own. One of our daughters has some health challenges, and we were told that she may not meet various developmental milestones. Her dedicated childcare teachers believed in her potential, worked with her tirelessly each day, and helped her meet these milestones. We attribute her early success to the tenacity of her toddler teachers. I realized that my purpose in this field was to pay forward the confidence I received as a child while recreating the incredible experience we had as parents in a high-quality childcare center.
t is our personal mission to create a place where children are cherished and to lead a caring team of teachers who believe fully in the potential of each child.
