Health & Safety at Building Blocks

Personal safety is rooted in trust.  Building Blocks has grown and strengthened trust with families throughout the COVID crisis due to our unwavering commitment to clear and transparent communication. We invite you to use our COVID Childcare Checklist to help guide your conversations with us and any other schools, daycares, or childcare providers.

Our Responsible Response

Wellness & Masking

Daily health screens are conducted every morning for each enrolled child and employee prior to entering our schools.  Masking is now a part of our healthy habits curriculum and per Connecticut regulations, all staff and children over the age of three wear masks inside our schools.

Social Distancing

Practicing social distance at Building Blocks means keeping to small group sizes and limiting interactions. It means rearranging our classrooms to create more room to play. Our teachers still hug, hold, and comfort children.


To best protect all of those who depend on our high-quality care, access to the inside of our Building Blocks schools will remain limited until COVID is no longer a public health threat.

In This Together

Partnership is at the core of our COVID response plan.  Building Blocks is a trusted partner with the Department of Public Health in every town in which we operate. We provide regular and updated COVID training and support to our outstanding staff, and we keep families informed every step of the way.

In School & At Home

Nothing is more important than the well-being of our children. That’s why in addition to providing responsible, small group, in-person care, Building Blocks, along with our parent company, Little Sprouts, provides on-demand access to hours of videos, songs, games, and activities through our at-home resource library.

COVID, Confidence & Confidentiality

While doctors, nurses, scientists, and health experts work to alleviate and eradicate COVID, we remain committed to providing the high-quality childcare that we know is essential to keeping working families in the field. While no one can responsibly guarantee an environment that is constantly COVID-free at all times, Building Blocks Early Learning Center can confidently tell you exactly how we respond to confirmed COVID cases, how we continue to maintain confidentiality while fully participating in contact tracing, and why, even now, so many members of our community continue to feel fully seen, heard, and cared for by Building Blocks.

While COVID -19 continues to be a public health threat, we take our part very seriously and would like to share more about our COVID-19 response. Drop your email here to watch this short video walkthrough.
