About Us

Welcome to Building Blocks! A NYS Dept Of Health Licensed child care/preschool facility, located in New York City, on the upper east side, in a luxury residential building in Manhattan on East 100th Street and First Avenue.

We offer live, password protected webcam access of the preschool classrooms for families of enrolled children free of charge.

Our students enjoy field trips, various seasonal and educational projects, holiday celebrations and regular visits to our local parks.

The preschool will regularly schedule events for parents to join their children for special festivities; such as our Father's/Mother's day breakfasts, annual Halloween Party, as well as opportunities to join us on trips to the Central Park Zoo and the Marionette Theater as chaperones.

We accept children from 6 months to 4 years.

We provide afterschool care.



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.

In order to maintain a high standard of child care in our preschool program, all our teachers are cleared by the New York State Dept of Health and are subject to thorough background checks that include fingerprinting

We value and understand the importance of a small teacher to child ratio to facilitate the learning process, so we maintain a teacher/student ratio of 1 teacher for every 4 students.

We strive to be the most affordable and highest quality choice for preschool in the neighborhood. Our schedules are very flexible and we will work with families on a case by case basis to provide you with care for your child when you need it, whether it be full or part-day, morning or afternoon, part week or everyday..
