DAYCARE & ACTIVITIES
Building Blocks Learning Center & Childcare
Building Blocks Learning Center and Child Care Inc. exists to provide a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for infants, toddlers, preschool and school age children. Our focus is to provide a stimulating early care and education experience which promotes each child’s social/emotional, physical, and cognitive development.
We pride our Center’s focus on the individual needs of each child. Each child is considered unique in temperament and rate of development. Curriculum is planned to enhance and challenge individual needs, interests, and abilities. Activities and relationships occur in a healthy, positive, and relaxed environment in which well-qualified staff provide personal attention, guidance, and nurturing to each child.
In addition to the Building Blocks Daycare Center, Fairmont offers a variety of licensed, in-home daycare options. Preschools and child development centers are great, but there’s something extra cozy about a real house where a real family lives and loves.

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE)
Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is based on the idea that parents provide their child’s first and most significant learning environment and parents are children’s first and most enduring teachers. ECFE works to support you as a parent/caregiver and to strengthen and empower families. The goal is to enhance the ability of all parents and other family members to provide the best possible environments for their child’s learning and development.
ECFE offers open parenting time to discuss parenting questions/concerns. This is a free resource for parents. ECFE also holds monthly Family Fun Nights for children ages 0-5 along with other activities.
