“We have sent 2 children to Building Blocks and have been so grateful for our experience there. At first I was a bit unsure about having mixed ages together, but now that we’ve experienced it, it is clear that it works wonderfully. The teachers regroup kids based on their individual needs and get to know each child so well so they are able to meet them where they are at and support their developmental growth. The facilities are great and very clean. Kids wash their hands frequently and surfaces are wiped down often, so we’ve been pleasantly surprised how sickness doesn’t spread much amongst one of the germ-iest age groups 🙂 The teachers are so amazing and loving. My kiddos adore them. The educational approach is based on the latest research and teachers continue to pursue professional development to stay up to date. The preschool program fluctuates between slightly more structured time led by a teacher to student-directed free and creative play throughout the day. The kids are supported with social-emotional-cognitive development and learn how to solve their own problems over time (with teacher support as needed). They also are gently guided along with core values from the Christian faith. Teachers are easy to talk to about anything and you get full parent-teacher conferences twice a year to hear how your child is developing and growing. We highly recommend Building Blocks Christian Academy.”

“We love this school! My daughter is so happy here. We are currently only sending her two days a week but she asks to go every day. The director is so wonderful and very helpful, quick to answer any questions I have. The teachers are well trained, kind and patient. My daughter comes home excited to tell us all about her friends, teachers and whatever new Bible story, educational concept or song she’s learned that day. The class room is beautiful and well maintained and there is a huge grassy play area with new playground equipment. What a fantastic place for children to learn and grow.”

“Choosing a preschool was by far one of the most painstaking decisions we’ve had to make as parents. And with good reason. It’s the place where our precious children spend nearly 10 hours a day five days a week during the most formative years of their lives. We toured nearly a dozen schools (!) and spent substantial amounts of time evaluating each. It’s been more than three months since we started our daughter at Building Blocks and we couldn’t be happier with this school and its amazing teachers who go above and beyond every single day. Our daughter even asks to go to school on the weekends! For starters, the facility is new, bright and welcoming. The classroom has very high ceilings, is maintained well by the staff, and it is just the perfectly bright and cheerful atmosphere you’d want your child to be in. If you’ve been touring preschools on the westside, you’ll know that the majority are located in antiquated buildings, with older (concerning) paint, smelly carpet and old toys and books that should have been replaced at least a few years ago. Building Blocks was a refreshing change. The outdoor play area is so spacious and safe, which was also a top priority for us. We deeply appreciate how our child has not gotten sick or injured ever since she started at this school. All of the teachers enforce hand washing often throughout the day. The school’s director Kaylen is strict about vaccination schedules and we love it. It protects everyone. Kids wash their hands all day and the teachers are thorough about post-potty cleanliness. During the outdoor recess time, all of the teachers actively watch the kids so they don’t get injured and they reinforce playing kindly with each other. THE MOST IMPORTANT deciding factor for us was the school’s amazing teachers and leadership. Every single teacher and teacher’s aide at Building Blocks are so loving, conscientious, smart and genuinely kindhearted. They work tirelessly from morning until the end of the day and they truly nurture these kids with loving care. It shows in our kids’ bright energy and laughter. During her nightly bedtime prayers, our daughter thanks God for her teachers by name. There could be no better, stronger validation of how great a school is than that. We couldn’t be more thankful!!!”

“Love love love this preschool! I can’t say enough wonderful things about it! As a Santa Monica mom, I have seen my share of overpriced schools and poor academic delivery. But this preschool is a breath of fresh air! Large play space for kids, beautiful garden, inside the school is beautiful! Lots of interactive centers, new toys (they rotate the toys out!) and lots of hands on learning. The curriculum prepares the children for kindergarten. Very small teacher to student ratio! Lots of parent-teacher communication! My son is absolutely thriving! I wouldn’t recommend any other preschool but this one! Love it!!”
