I had 2 children that attended the school for less than a year. While the actual teachers are wonderful (well the ones that stayed) the administration is down right rude and very disrespectful. Ms. Anne is rude to her staff in front of parents and to top it off she is very short with parents. If your staff is unhappy then how are they supposed to teach our children? On more than 1 occasion she has GRABBED CHILDREN in a manner I thought only a parent should touch a child, hung up the phone in front of me while I was at the window to pay, she yells at kids and speaks in a demeaning manner and while I had tried to speak to her about it on more than one occasion- ITS HER DAUGHTERS BUSINESS (Lisa). So no it got no where. Hopefully she does not keep treating children like this. I didn't want to go to jail so I removed my toddler daughters from their care. One good comment, the actual facility is nice.

I've been bringing my children here for over five years. They are a very caring staff, and I have always felt confident leaving my children there.
I have never had a problem working with the staff or students that attend at Ryan Academy or Building Blocks. I have been to both schools for three years now. They truly have your child's interest at heart. They treat you like family and keep everyone tight and safe. You will not regret bringing your child here.
Love! Love! Love! They have a great program that promotes education for the children while nurturing them. Our children's education comes from the parent and teachers working together. BBPS has done a fabulous job with my children. I am super happy on how the kids are cared for and always developing news skills. When I drop my kids off at preschool its like leaving them with family .The management team is very professional and they will lend a helping hand if/when needed. I will always refer this preschool to anyone that ask.
I would like to first state that the negative is always established by unhappy people and the positive is never addressed by the parents that are greatly satisfied. My two children have been enrolled at Building Blocks since they were 16months, we love it here. My oldest is now off to first grade and returns for the summer for an adventurous fun filled summer camp. My youngest has now started pre-k and is excited to begin another year with Building Blocks. My children enjoy walking in the door in the morning and hate to leave in the afternoons. Building Blocks has been a huge impact on my children's lives and we are grateful for the love and support that they show us on a daily basis. The teachers and staff are great. I would highly recommend this Pre-School to anyone that needs care for their child. We love it here and I hope that you will too.
New management is already screwing RA up just like building blocks.
