General School Mission

"Building Blocks Child Care and Development Center provides a well-rounded program designed for full child care of infants, toddlers, preschoolers along with a school-age care program. Realizing that each child is unique, our programs endeavor to provide a warm, accepting climate in which each child can learn to trust, feel comfortable, be secure, and develop self-confidence. All our activity centers will strive to provide:
A bright, stimulating environment designed to accommodate a variety of activities
A wide range of interesting equipment, toys and materials selected for specific developmental stages of children
A well planned and implemented curriculum
An experienced, competent staff, continually renewing their skills in child development through training
Building Blocks provides a developmentally appropriate program where children are able to grow as individuals in a loving environment as they master the skills of youth. Building Blocks offers an enriched program meeting the highest standards of early childhood education. Our program is designed to work with parents through involvement in the program and an open door policy at all times.
Our curriculum consist of developmentally appropriate activities and practices. The majority of activities are hands on learning experiences. It is our philosophy that children learn through doing, and not just by watching or using ditto sheets. Overall classroom planning is done by the classroom teacher based on the developmental level of the group with which she is working. Building Blocks has access to many early childhood education resources and consultants, and makes frequent use of them. Our local college regularly places student interns at Building Blocks for training and enhancement of our program.
