About Building Blocks Early Education Centers
Preschool & Child Care in Raeford, Cameron, Southern Pines & Hope Mills NC
Building Blocks Early Education Centers provide a full range of child care services to children in infancy through school age. We take the responsibility of caring for your children seriously. We work to nurture their spiritual, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Our staff and teachers are committed to partnering with parents to encourage a child’s growth, while instilling the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ in each child’s heart.
We currently offer child care and preschool services, as well as after school care and summer camps in facilities in Raeford, Cameron, Southern Pines, and Hope Mills, NC. Our curriculum focuses on early childhood brain development and we use state-of-the-art tools and programs to encourage cognitive development in children. Each of our centers provides kids with a clean, healthy, and safe environment, where they are encouraged to create, build confidence, and explore. We are proud to have a team of loving teachers who feel called to teach young children.
All of our centers have Level 3 Directors with an administration team that has over 50 years of combined experience.
Providing the highest quality child care begins with hiring the best teaching staff possible. Each classroom has a lead teacher and an assistant/floater teacher that meets NAEYC and DCDEE requirements. Our lead teachers have associate’s degrees or bachelor’s degrees in early childhood education or equivalent. Our assistant teachers have a CDA or equivalency (12 semester hours in ECE) and are enrolled in an associate’s degree program towards early childhood education. Floater teachers meet DCDEE lead teacher qualifications in many different ways.
We follow NC voluntary enhanced ratios, which ensures more one-on-one interactions with your child. We are dedicated to helping each child feel welcome and loved while they are in our care.
