Our core values

Children Playing Game
The Joy of Learning
Through nature based and positive intentional child-centered play - children’s cognitive, physical, language, literacy, and social-emotional skills are enhanced. Through the “100 languages learning” our children become creative and active thinkers. Covert and divergent problem solving is fostered, strengthened, and develops a love of lifelong learning.
Welcome to Building Blocks School Preschool-Home of the Nature Walk
We value self-respect, mutual respect, and respect for our environment. Our early childhood learning promotes programs such as toddler programs and Summer-camp programs which help children become more aware of their surroundings. We provide a safe and nurturing environment that encourages the appreciation of the awe and wonder of childhood learning.
Teacher & children preschool
Building Block Preschool, known to be the best childcare center, values the community a lot. A good early childhood learning is vital for children’s development. We nurture our community and promote cultural awareness in our environment, encourage participation, and celebrate the diversity of our learners, families, teachers, and extended community.

Deep Nature Connection
We help to awaken greater awareness and appreciation for our natural world within our community. This includes both the nature that exists all around us, as well as that which lives deep within; growing joyful, trusting, authentic relationships that grow in the relationship with others and the land. We believe that this connection is an essential element of the human journey. We are a Michigan Green School.

Building Blocks Unlocks The Power of Your Child

We aim to unlock the full potential of your children by creating effective, enriching, and positive learning for them. Our childcare programs are designed to fill their formative years with colors and give them a bright future. Your children will love it here!


Building Blocks Preschool is the best childcare center that offers a variety of programs for children of different ages, such as preschool, preschool early learning, early childhood learning, and nature-based toddler programs. Our curriculum is inspired by the internationally renowned Reggio Emilia Philosophy. Our preschool center’s approach focuses on

    • Enriching active learners
    • Developing critical thinking skills
    • Developing intellectual curiosity and wonder
    • Encouraging children’s personal interest
    • Cultivating nature love

We offer a wide range of activities and experiences to stimulate the senses and unleash children’s innate creativity, including nature-based summer camp programs and activities. Our teachers act as documenters, observers, and researchers to support children’s learning, and our classroom and outdoor learning environments serve as “second and third teachers”.

Overall, our preschool center’s goal is to provide an intentional and responsive, and well-rounded education to stimulate the senses of every learner and unleash their innate creativity.  Fostering creativity through the work of young hands reflects the values we want to communicate to children. Our guiding principles allow us to focus on the whole child, empowering their thoughts, questions, interests, and in turn, confidently fostering a lifelong love of learning. We strive to be the best childcare center and our programs are designed to support childhood learning and development at every stage.

“The Reggio Emilia philosophy of respecting the child as a protagonist, collaborator, and communicator in his or her own learning resonates with me as both an educator and a mother.
