Trailblazers consists of preschool and school-aged children. Both programs use The Creative Curriculum. STREAM activities are added to the school-age curriculum when needed. The curriculum promotes learning through exploration and discovery through studies with hands-on activities that build confidence, creativity and critical thinking skills.
Preschool: Pioneers and Navigators
The Pioneers and Navigators are combined for the majority of the day, rotating between one large classroom and three to four small classrooms. The larger classroom is set up with centers. The small classrooms include a room with loud centers (blocks, dramatic play and music), a technology room, a science room and a room with an extra library, art and manipulative area.
School Age: Backpackers and Scouts
We provide after-school care and full-day care during teacher workdays, holidays and summer break from kindergarten through age 12. After-school care offers snacks, homework help and activities. During full days, children are offered breakfast, lunch and snacks. Both after-care and full-day programs provide curriculum activities, including centers such as writing, manipulatives, art, library, dramatic play, blocks, technology and outdoors. They also participate in field trips on the university campus several times a week during the summer.
