We feel very fortunate that our daughter has been able to participate in the JK progam this year. She enjoys her classmates and teachers greatly. As Parents we are thrilled with the education and the nurturing she receives from her teachers. It is amazing to see the results. We would have never thought our daughter would be reading in JK… It’s amazing!
The small class sizes at Building Blocks are wonderful. The teachers always have time for our questions. We are grateful to have been referred to Building Blocks and are excited for our son to start their program. We enthusiastically recommend Building Blocks to anyone!
