Welcome to Blue Skies and Butterflies!
Second Location Now Open in Portland’s Burlingame Area
Blue Skies and Butterflies is a different kind of center, much different than the big corporate centers you typically see in our area. We have a beautiful campus with large mature trees and a lot of green grass for the children to play and experience nature. We have several large outside play areas, one of which is covered. Our infant building is called the Cottage and it is set up on a hill with its own play area, part of which is also covered. We are a family owned center and the owner is also the center director. Located on quiet SW Davis Rd. Between SW 170th Ave. and Murray Blvd.
Our Portland location is conveniently located on Taylors Ferry Rd., one block off Terwilliger Blvd. This newly remodeled facility sits several blocks off of I-5 with convenient access to downtown Portland, Lewis and Clark College, OHSU and the VA Hospital. This facility also has a large covered play area so the children to experience nature several times a day.
Every child is naturally creative, curious, and loves to learn.
It is our job as parents and teachers to present opportunities where children can be stimulated and challenged in a positive non-threatening environment, where each can explore his imagination and discover his own innate style of learning.
We feature a dedicated, caring and well educated staff that plans and implements a child centered curriculum:
- Curriculum that focuses on self-help and social competence skills
- Developmentally appropriate curriculum
- Active learning which focuses on all senses
- A strong, highly successful phonetic reading and writing program
- Math and Science
- Art, Music and Physical Education
