Our philosophy of the First 5 School Readiness is that all young children and their families deserve the same opportunities to succeed, regardless of any demographic, geographic or economic considerations.

We are dedicated to teaching the children how to grow into caring, capable adults through a partnership with parents based on support and education, designed to build on family strengths. Here at Building Blocks Preschool the children are introduced to pre-reading skills and number recognition, as well as art, science, nature and music through a play-based curriculum.
