We'd like to know our community better. Please, take our quick, 8 question survey. Your participation is greatly appreciated!
"Getting To Know You Survey"
We are open during the school year from 6:30 to 8:20 (8:45) AM before school and 2:30 to 6:00 PM after school. Next year (2014-15) school start and end times will change. BT will follow Pathfinder K-8 start/end times.
We are open all school days (except BT professional development days - see "School Year Calendar" for more information), all early dismissal days and only certain vacation days. (See the B.T. Yearly Schedule for more information.)
We offer a drop-in option as space is available.
Blazing Trails accepts DSHS, City and U.W. subsidies and has limited scholarships or work-trade at the Director's discretion.
Our goal is to inspire positive self-esteem, respect for self and others and a sense of responsibility for one's own behavior.
Parents/Guardians are always welcome to drop by to share their experiences or to just "hang out" and play with us!
Blazing Trails is a non-profit organization with its own governing council and is run through Pathfinder's PTSA.
Blazing Trails maintains an 11 to 1 student/adult ratio. This ratio may vary due to the needs of individual activities (ie. outdoor games may have up to a 15:1 ratio whereas an art project could require a 6:1 ratio).
We have use of Pathfinder's playground, grass fields, cafeteria and gym facilities.
We provide healthy snacks.
Our curriculum is child-centered, culturally relevant and developmentally appropriate. Activities include, but are not limited to:
Sports and outdoor play
Story reading and telling
Beading, sewing and other
arts & crafts
Field trips during vacations
Theme and club activities
