We at  Building Blocks Childhood Center are very proud of our staff, our programs and our facilities.  Please feel free to contact us with your questions and come visit us any time.

Here is what some of our parents think about us…

Celebration Childcare

Due to our previous day care facility suddenly closing, we researched and arrived at Celebration Childcare abruptly.  We cannot speak highly enough of the welcoming, friendly atmosphere and the special attention we felt we were given in order to help our children through the transition to a new facility.

 Both the teachers and staff created a very nurturing environment and were collaborative in finding solutions to help our kids adjust.  We appreciated their expertise and the team effort that was created between staff and parents to do the best for our children.

 Since then, we have experienced three great  years with Celebration.  The staff is caring and qualified and you always find them interacting with the children.  Safety is at the forefront of everyone’s mind while still creating an enjoyable atmosphere.  The center is curriculum focused and is age appropriate.  They have even added an outdoor garden which further incorporates the outdoors into learning. Rules and guidelines are clear which creates a stable and known environment for the kids and helps parents understand processes and how to work with staff.   The collaboration with staff we found in our first few days at Celebration has remained as part of our experience the entire time we have been there. The center has a feeling of continuous improvement, introducing new things throughout the years for the benefit of the kids and to expand programming.

 Celebration feels like part of our extended family and we are incredibly appreciative of the care and formation they have provided our children during these early years.

CrossWays PreSchool

“CrossWays went well beyond just ABC’s and 123′s in preparing our daughter
for kindergarten. We felt she was prepared from both a social and educational standpoint, and she excelled because of the experiences she had in preschool.”
- Jennifer Carney, CWPS Parent

“My daughter attends CrossWays PreSchool and loves to go every day.  I love the variety of programs that Crossways offers:  3 and 4 year old preschool classes, Science Sensation, 26 letters ‘n More and Lunch Bunch.  CrossWays encourages children to learn through play which is something I was looking for in a preschool.  In addition, CrossWays does a great job introducing Christian teachings in a meaningful way.”                                               – Jennie Schlitt, CWPS Parent


Mom’s Morning Out

“The Mother’s Morning Out provides a wonderful opportunity for two year olds to establish good social skills, ability to follow structure, and engage in much fun! I believe my girls will be better prepared for preschool as a result of their time at MMO. Lisa Valentine, the director, is a hands-on, patient educator who ensures both the safety and happiness of each child! She will work with you     on whatever your child’s individual needs may be to enable them to fully adjust to time away from home. It is a fun, exciting place to be–all the while learning skills that will make them better toddlers!”                                     -  Jennie Sahagian, MMO parent

“My five-year-old son, Connor first started attending Mom’s Morning Out when he was two.  Connor looked forward to the program every day, and adored Mrs. Valentine.  This fall my, second son, Kellen, began MMO and becomes excited each day to get his backpack on and “go to school” just like his big brother!  Kellen enjoys it so much that we just signed up for a third day!   The teachers are always loving and very nurturing.  Each day there is something new to stimulate the children’s developing brains: art, circle time, playdoh, blocks, the sensation table, and plenty of toys.  My family couldn’t be happier to have found such a wonderful program as Mom’s Morning Out.”                                                                          – Jen Crane, MMO parent
