My two children have attended this school from 16 months, my oldest is now in elementary. I am now looking to switch my youngest out of the school. Many of the teachers that cared have left and upon asking them it has been due to the changing atmosphere at the school. The bathrooms are no longer kept really clean like they used to, now they wreak of urine and the classrooms are mediocre at best. Both of my kids have come home from there with bleach stains all over their shirts from the lack of proper use of a bleach bottle. Many of the teachers are on their phone during the day and while outside and more than once there has been SCREAMING matches between the staff just outside the classrooms while I am there picking up my children. I USED to love this school and so did my oldest but toward the end he stopped wanting to go.

This is single-handedly the worst school I've ever sent my child to. Very dirty classrooms with old, broken toys. Teachers dress very inappropriately, are very unprofessional, and never communicate with the parents (only talk to each other). Food is horrible quality. And I've seen teachers snatch students by the arms when they do something bad. Awful, awful place. Very glad to have my toddler out of this nightmare.

All 3 of my children have attended here from 'waddlers' (16 month) up to school aged before/after and summer camp. They all enjoyed it. I strongly disagree with one of the previous reviews that states the children don't learn anything. My youngest will be attending kindergarden there this year because he advanced so well in their pre-k program but isn't old enough to attend kindergarden in public school. His writing skills would not have flourished the way they did had it not been for the diligent work he did in the classroom. It's a wonderful feeling to be able to leave your children somewhere while you work and know that the staff will treat them the same way you do. They provide firm structure but with love and kindness.

Building blocks preschool is a great school. I placed my son there as soon as he was old enough to go. The teachers are very nice and he is always comming home with something that he has created in class.
