Welcome to Liggett Trail Education Center

Home to the Blue Springs School District Early Childhood Programs and Multi-Disabled Program

Liggett Trail is the home to all the BSSD Early Learning Programs! If a family needs support for their child pre-natal through 4 years of age, Liggett Trail is the place for you! We offer the following programs at Liggett Trail Education Center:

Parents As Teachers Program: Parents as Teachers is a wonderful program that started in the BSSD in 1985. The founding Director, Mrs. Patty Mohn, envisioned a program that would support the families pre-natal through age 5. Parents As Teachers has been serving families in the BSSD for over 30 years! Our Parent Educators strive to assist our families with a variety of supports while also strengthening our community.

Cub Care Early Learning Center: Cub Care Early Learning Center is the newest addition to Liggett Trail Education Center! Our supportive Blue Springs Community voted in 2018 to build a new Cub Care Preschool that is adjacent to Liggett Trail Education Center. In December of 2020, Cub Care moved from their home on Valley View Rd to their new home at LTEC! Cub Care serves students ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. Cub Care does have Early Head Start and Head Start classes for those families that qualify.

Liggett Trail Education Center: The Blue Springs School District has a long-standing history of excellence in serving students with differing abilities! Liggett Trail Education Center formally opened its doors in August of 2007. Liggett Trail Education Center serves students in an Early Childhood Special Education setting four days a week, Monday-Thursday. These students are ages 3 – 4 years of age with varying abilities. In addition to serving students in an ECSE setting, LTEC also serves students ages 5 to 21 years of age with Multiple Abilities. The students and their families at Liggett Trail Education Center are truly special!
