About Me

My name is Lisa Gross, and I’m the Director of Adventure Academy. I’ve been surrounded by children for my entire life. I became an aunt for the first time at the age of five and, from that point on, I was hooked. I babysat a lot as a teen, participated in an Early Childhood Development class at Carmel High School, and attended Butler University where I obtained my degree in Early Childhood Education. I have been a nanny, an Early Childhood Minister, a Preschool Director, and and now a Licensed Childcare Center Director.

Our Family

I believe each human being comes into this world as a unique individual with unlimited potential. Thus, caring for and spending time with children is less about molding them and more about nurturing them and helping them grow. When you provide a child with a safe, healthy place to grow where they feel loved, free to explore, free to experiment, and free to fail, they will develop a desire to persevere and learn that failure is only part of the journey, not the end.

Children are curious, active, hands-on learners.

Adventure Academy seeks to cater to that need by maintaining a center that is a safe place for children to explore, discover, and become problem solvers. Adventure Academy believes in bolstering a child's individual growth, self-discovery, and the development of a positive and strong self-image.

We believe children learn best when doing things they enjoy.

We believe that children learn best when doing things they enjoy. A child’s motivation is driven purely by their love for what they are doing. Adventure Academy focuses on validating that love in order to create fun, rich learning experiences.
