The Learning Environment

We strive to provide a safe, stimulating, fun and educational environment. We utilize various educational methods in our curriculum such as Montessori and Reggio Emilia. Cooking, science, music and art are a big part of our learning environment.

We value and understand the importance of a small teacher to child ratio to facilitate the learning process.

Our prechool (ages 3 to 5) has a 1-5 teacher/student ratio and our nursery school (ages 1-3) has a 1-3 ratio.

Building Blocks Playgroup alumni regular graduate into some of the finest private and public grammar schools in the area.

Developmental Progress Reports and Letters of Recommendation as well as admission assistance for entrance to the more exclussive private schools are provided to graduating children to facilitate the enrollment process.
