PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN TO BUILDING BLOCKS PRESCHOOL, INC! My initial impression was that the center, although small and unprogressive, would be a good nurturing environment. I felt comfortable with the staff members but the owner/director was very abrasive and unfriendly to both children and parents. I even witnessed a couple of instances were she was verbally abusive to her staff. She is a bully and targets certain children for excessive time-outs and isolation. I started to notice that my children, who always loved to go to "school", would become anxious and upset when it was drop off time. Around that same time the assistant director left abruptly and the center became noticeably under-staffed. The final straw came when she insisted that I get my TWO-YEAR-OLD tested for ADD or find another center. I was shocked to find that someone who touts more than a decade of experience in early childhood education was unable to distinguish the “terrible two’s” from a clinical diagnosis that usually is not detected until age five. When my husband, who holds a Master’s in Counseling and has served as an elementary school counselor, called to discuss the matter Ms. Susie hung up on him. Needless to say this woman is unprofessional and tries to use children’s behavior as a scapegoat for her short comings as a child care provider. It was not surprising to us that during our search for another center other providers were aware of Ms. Susie’s antics and wondered how my children lasted as long as they did. Steer clear of Building Blocks. It is an uncaring, hostile environment.
It is the best daycare around. The staff is wonderful and the owner Mrs. Susie treats my kids like they are her own. She is forever hugging and loving on them. My kids love her. I feel so blessed to have found someone like her to entrust my kids to. I am proud to give her the highest of ratings. If you are looking for someone to take good care of your kids and teach them Building Blocks is the place.
I just stumbled across this website looking for something else and I wanted to voice my opinion. I am a single parent of 3 children and all my children went to Building Blocks. Their ages were 3 months, 28 months, and 8 years old. Ms. Susie, the owner is the most wonderful, loving, compassionate person that I have ever met. My children had only been going there about 3 months when I lost...
First let me start by saying, i'm a mother myself of two girls ages 10 and 7. Also, i'm a former employee of building blocks preschool. People today are to quick to judge. The owner ( mrs. Suzie ) loves each and everyone of her babies. She has been doing this a very long time. She sits in the floor and plays and interacts wth each and every child. She spoils them rotten and each day she is at...
