My son has been blessed by the incredible support he has received at Building Blocks Nursery School for the past 3 years. He began as a preschooler with a moderate speech and language delay, who needed a stimulating learning environment delivered by caring and professional teachers. He has since completed JK and is now in their SK program.
I am ecstatic with the development of my son’s language, socialization and learning skills since attending this school. Building Blocks’ early childhood educators are dedicated professionals who understand all young children have different learning styles and abilities. They provide a safe, secure and exciting environment that supports successful learning. I will forever be indebted to them for their skills and knowledge to help me provide my son with a strong foundation for his future success.
