Building Blocks Laboratory Preschool
What is the Building Blocks Laboratory Preschool?
Building Blocks is a therapeutic classroom experience for emotionally fragile children between the ages of 4-6, who are struggling in their homes, preschool classrooms or daycares, and sometimes in their kindergarten classrooms. Some of the children have experienced abuse or neglect, and all have challenging behavior that prevents them from having success in their daily lives. This cutting edge, intensive program combines the classroom experience for children with regular home visits and parenting classes. The success of the program depends upon the combination of these services, with the goal of making a positive difference in the lives of the families.
What services do we offer?
Therapeutic Educational Program- The Building Blocks program is a structured, school-like environment for preschool and kindergarten children who are struggling with disruptive behavior. This program teaches the children how to handle their anger and frustration appropriately and develop appropriate ways to cope and interact with others. Children come daily during the school year for a half a day program focused on developing social and emotional skills. Parents participate in parent education and coaching to help them continue their child's success into the future after they have left the Building Blocks Program.
Consultation and Training- Our teachers have extensive skills and expertise in handling difficult behaviors, and are available for consultation with local daycares and preschools who want suggestions or strategies for a child who is struggling.
