Reader's Choice AwardVoted Reader’s Choice Best Childcare Center and Best Learning Center 2018!

Building Blocks Early Education Centers provide children and families in Fayetteville and surrounding communities with supportive, fun, and reliable child care and Pre-K services. Our learning centers provide a welcoming, safe, and challenging environment for children. Each of our students is encouraged to explore, create, and build confidence, under the guidance of loving teachers who feel called to teach young children.

Caring for young children is a responsibility we take seriously. We are proud to care for children from infancy through school age. Our staff and teachers take great care to provide for their spiritual development in all areas of growth. Through Bible stories, interactive play, and outdoor activities, we work to jumpstart a child’s brain development. We work to partner with parents to nurture each child’s emotional, cognitive, physical and social development. In addition, we instill the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ in each child’s heart.

Our curriculum focuses on early childhood brain development, and we use state-of-the-art tools to help children embrace a lifelong love of learning. We are proud to offer a full range of services including: preschool programs, summer camps, field trips, and bus transportation to/from local schools.

We maintain clean and healthy environments in each of our centers, which ties into healthy development. Creating a comfortable, loving environment helps each child be more receptive to learning and expanding their knowledge. For more information about our services and curriculum, please contact us today at 910-703-8714.

All centers are 5 star, NAEYC accredited and have been voted best childcare in Fayetteville for 5 consecutive years and best learning center for 2018.
