My daughter has been at Building Blocks for over two years, and I have been very pleased with the quality of the care she receives. It's the only daycare I've enrolled her in, but I did tour several other daycare centers and in-home daycares before deciding that this was the best for us. It is very important to me that my daughter be given a lot of affection, and the teachers are very gentle and loving with the kids, giving lots of hugs and praise. In addition to behaving professionally even in difficult situations, you can tell that the director/s really do love children too. Building Blocks has several perks that set it apart from other daycares I've seen, including an indoor gym so the kids can exercise even when it's nasty/cold outside, the upper half of dutch doors on the classroom being left open so passersby can see inside at any time, and the option of bringing in milk/food for your child if he/she has special dietary needs (like soy milk, etc.). The classrooms have large windows in them so the children can see outside and get some natural light, and the layout of the daycare as a whole feels very open and spacious compared to others I've seen. The children often take walks, buggy rides, or ride bikes down the daycare's main hallways and through the church building's extensive hallways, so they're not confined to the classroom all day. I also really like that the daycare and surrounding church is made mostly of concrete blocks, which makes me feel better when we have tornado/severe storm warnings because the daycare is probably safer than our home. I'm also somewhat of a germaphobe, and I love how well maintained the daycare is - they regularly scrub the floors and shampoo the carpets, and have these huge industrial-sized fans to help them dry quickly. All in all I have been very happy with our experience at Building Blocks!

I have two children (ages 3 and 1) that attend this daycare and I couldn't ask for a better place to take them. As a mother, I was very nervous about who I was going to trust to watch my kids, but the first time I toured this facility I knew it was a great fit for our family. The teachers and directors here really care about my children and do an excellent job! In response to the negative review on here that stated the daycare does not inform parents when there is an outbreak - this is simply not true. I have received notifications that were sent home with my children informing me of what was going on. Also, whenever your child becomes sick while at daycare they immediately call you and remove your child from their class so they don't get other kids sick. I could not ask for a better place for my children to go while I am working. Also, the security is great. They have a great system to keep your kids safe and to prevent anyone from entering the facility that should not be there. You can't even get in the building without a special pass key or without them letting you in. Plus, there is another set of security doors after that before you can get to the children. I love this daycare and my children love it too!
This daycare is wonderful! My son has been there since he was 4 months old and is now 2 years old. From the moment I first toured I knew that it was a loving and stable environment for my child. I have been extremely impressed with every teacher that my son has had. Each classroom keeps record of your childs activities and the curriculum they are studying and they provide that information to the parents. I appreciate this because I can discuss those things with my son at home and continue the learning process. When I pick him up in the evening, any teachers and staff that see him walking say goodbye and make a big fuss over him. I know that he is made to feel special and loved every day. If I ever have a question, the staff are always available and willing to answer my questions. Everytime there is a contagious illness in one of his class/schoolmates I am given a notification along with signs and symptoms for that illness. Again, I must say I really appreciate everyone at Building Blocks for being so good to my son.
