Building Blocks Daycare and Preschool have been a part of the Springfield community for 20 years, offering 2 convenient locations (south and west).

Both facilities open at 6:00 am, south closes at 6:00 pm and west at 11:45 pm, offering extended hours for parents working evening shifts or attending school.


We provide primary care giving and have instituted the a sensory-based curriculum in our infant, toddler and two year-old programs.

We offer a loving and nurturing environment and maintain a family-focused philosophy.


Preschool-readingWe emphasize experiences that promote natural curiosity, socialization, communication, problem solving and a positive self-esteem.

Learning experiences are cultivated through music, play, and exploration with caring, knowledgeable staff. Our certified preschool curriculum, The Sensory Teaching Readiness Curriculum, is designed to streamline a child into kindergarten. It blends two schools of thought: Sensory Based Retention and Fundamental Readiness, and teaches basic skills like pre-writing, pre-math, and pre-reading.

In addition, we have a computer lab, music, Spanish, listening centers and ASL sign language programs.  In our music and movement program we incorporate tai-chi boards, scarf juggling, Elasta Blast activities, and stretch-eze fitness bands all working together to promote fitness and your basic body, space,effort and relationship activities.

Call today to schedule a tour at either location.

We look forward to meeting your family!
