Starting with our parent/child and toddler separation groups and continuing up through our preschool classes, children blossom and grow while striving to reach their learning potential. Toddlers and preschoolers participate in a curriculum which is aligned with New York State Department of Education Learning Standards and is enhanced by physical education, a music program, and computer literacy activities. Children participate in many extra-curricular activities as well, including field trips, pumpkin picking, a visit from the fire department, special performances and many more.

Building Blocks offers comprehensive programs and services to meet the many special needs of all children including regular education, special education, speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, family training, evaluation services and ABA therapy.

Building Blocks likewise possesses and maintains current its day care license in accordance with regulations set forth by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services. Special education programs and evaluation services are funded by federal, state and county governments.

You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.

The important thing is not so much that every child should be taught as that every child should be given the wish to learn.
