Mission Statement

The mission of Building Blocks Learning Academy is to provide high quality child care for children ages 6 weeks through 12 years of age. It is our principal goal to produce highly esteemed students who grow into life long learners. Through a caring, nurturing, safe environment, the staff at Building Blocks meet the cognitive, physical, social and emotional needs of the child(ren) thus making the preschool experience a positive first impression of formal education. Programming encourages exploratory and discovery, interactive developmental choices and provides age appropriate curriculum in which children are active participants. It is Building Blocks contention to develop the whole child, regardless of race, creed, color, religious, persuasion, economic or social/physical disabilities.

Program Philosophy

Building Blocks Learning Academy was founded upon the principles that children need an environment which allows them to play freely as well as learn the basic skills necessary for later school success. By providing a liberal curriculum, safe and sanitized environment and an array of age appropriate materials, the program allows the children to explore and discover freely. Our caring capable instructors help guide the exploratory process to ensure the child 's proper development and the indoctrination of a college bound mindset at the preschool level.

Since preschool is a child's first formal impression of education, research has proven the importance of a positive preschool experience. Brain development begins during infancy and the brain is most malleable at the preschool level. It is the Academy's commitment to its students to assist them in graduating from preschoolers to pre-scholars.

By incorporating the influences of the parents, community, government and private industry, Building Blocks Learning Academy continually seeks the most current research in early childhood development. By staying current in research, the children in our care are the direct beneficiaries. The entire staff attends the industry conferences and various trainings to ensure continued staff development. This is to better serve our students and families.
