Gardening is an exploration we provide all year long at Blue Skies!

Blue Skies Exploration Academy is licensed for children ages 12 months to 12 years.

We began operation in our current facility in December 2011, and have been making amazing improvements ever since to help create the best environment for learning and fun for your child!

Some of the benefits that truly set Blue Skies Exploration Academy apart from other centers include:

Our Outdoor Classroom
Blue Skies recently received a Colorado Garden Show, Inc. grant allowing us to install a greenhouse, composters, and raised flower beds this spring.  All of these additions will allow us to use our outdoor space as a classroom in order to extend learning.

Certified Eco-Healthy
We are very proud to be the only facility in Colorado Springs to carry the Eco-Healthy Child Care endorsement.  This is a mark of our commitment to provide a safe, healthy and green environment for the children and families we serve.

Creativity and art are a major focus!

An Amazing Art Studio
At Blue Skies we believe that every child needs opportunities to explore the world and avenues for self expression.  To achieve this we have a created a dedicated Art Studio and we have a dedicated art teacher on our staff team.  Children from toddlers and up have at least one opportunity each week to visit the studio. Plus we enjoy our fabulous Art in a Cart, too!

Blue Skies Remodel
We invite parents to check out our recently remodeled rooms.  In keeping with our Eco-Healthy Child Care endorsement, we have installed wood floors and use the least toxic disinfecting and sanitizing products.  We also have created sensory stations for infants to explore and have striven to create a home-like environment for our youngest students.  Our cribs and mattresses are newly replaced and meet the Consumer Product Safety Commission‘s New Crib Rules.

Security & Safety Upgrades
We installed a keypad entry that limits access to the building.  Each parent has a unique entry code the unlocks the door, and visitors or guests may ring a bell to gain entry.

We offer our parents the comfort of being able to watch their child in real time through a subscription to pb&j TV!  Parents are able to subscribe to the service and then view their classrooms from anywhere internet is available.
