Child Care Services Survey

We are asking all teachers and families to take the time and fill out the survey!!! Thank you!

The purpose of the survey is to identify the needs of both child care providers and parents/guardians within the childcare system as Massachusetts is reopening. Thank you for your responses and for taking the time to thoughtfully fill out this form. If you have any follow-up questions or if there is...

Good Morning Building Blocks Family and friends!!!

As some of you have heard, child care centers in MA will be allowed to open June 29th as long as this health emergency allows us. With that being said, the Department of Early Education and Care has released new regulations and guidelines. These regulations and guidelines will be much more strict. Building Blocks will have to make adjustments to accommodate new guidelines. Our ratios will change, our drop off and pick up procedures will be changing. Our drop off and pick up times will have to be staggered. Our first and foremost concern is the health and safety of all staff and our children in the program!!! We know this is a scary and unprecedented time. We understand you might have concerns. What we are asking our families, is to please private message us if your child will be returning to the center and the hours that you will be needing. We are including the link to the new guidelines and are asking you read them to get a better understanding of the changes we will be facing. Thank you. https://eeclead.force.com/resource/1591036172000/Min_Req

Parents and guardians,

We have had several families reach out to us regarding pictures. We have thought about ways to get families their picture packages. Some families have multiple packages which would be to costly for the center to mail out. Coming to the center is not an option due to Governor Baker encouraging everyone to stay at home. Unfortunately, at this time we are going to have to say that parents can pick up pictures when the center reopens. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you.

**Attention all parents, guardians and staff**Governor Charlie Baker has extended our closure to June 29th.

We want to take a moment and give a shout out to some of our teachers. We have a few of our teachers who have completed the Early Childhood Education Cohort at Berkshire Community College. Well, due to COVID-19 these teachers will not be able to walk across the stage and receive their diplomas. We know how devastated you all are!! We cannot thank you enough for sacrificing your time to Complete this program. You missed moments in your lives, your children’s lives and you gave up so much more when you entered the program. Your hard work and dedication did not go unnoticed!! We are all incredibly proud of you and want you to take the time to recognize your accomplishment!!!! Great job Ms. Nicole, Ms. Alyssa, Ms.Katie, Ms. Tina!!!!! You all have done an amazing job!!!!♥️🎉🧑‍🎓

Dear Parents/Guardians/Staff

Governor Baker had a press conference earlier today, ordering the extended closure of all Massachusetts schools and child care. We are very saddened! We were looking forward to seeing our families and children April 7th. We understand that, this is to further mitigate the spread of this very serious virus.

We will continue to check in and post any activities/curriculum that we come across! We are all in this together! Let’s continue to stay home and only go out if your picking up food/medications! Together we can stop the spread of this virus so we can get back to every day activities! We are hopeful, we will be able to open May 4th. As always, please message our page if you have any further questions. Thank you! We hope our families and staff stay safe and healthy.

Good Morning,

We just wanted to check in with our families and let you know, we miss you all!!! We hope this finds you well! ♥️♥️
