I have used this provider for less than 6 months

Building Blocks is absolutely amazing. I started looking for my son a daycare a few weeks ago. In that time I called multiple daycares and narrowed it down to just a few that passed my "phone interview." After I had thought I found a daycare, I visiting Building blocks. As soon as I walked in I was greeted with a smile by Ms Valerie and I was asked to sit down. She was in the middle of her lunch so I figured she would've just answered a few questions and I would've been on my way, but no. She pushed her lunch aside and gave me her full attention. She spent at least an hour giving me a tour, informing me of ways I could become more knowledgeable of not just her daycare, any daycare in Athens, and informed me of all the financial options available. She had so much knowledge of what kids need and how to deliver it successfully. She used terminology that I even hear in nursing school and I was beyond impressed. I knew that's where I wanted him to be. She spent the next week helping me get everything I needed together and got my baby started. He's never been in daycare so I was beyond nervous by by day two, he was already reaching for his teachers who ALWAYS greet me with a smile. We are now on day three and my son is already counting to 10 with no hesitation. I am so grateful for this school and the owner Ms. Valerie. They've had made an intimidating experience joyful.

I am an employee

Owner has a nasty attitude. The food that was fed to children looks disgusting & is something I KNOW for a fact she wouldn't feed to any of her close ones. She claim she follow state's rule but I didn't see not once that she did. Her laundry room is filthy idk how she get a GOOD report with the State. Her starting pay is $7.25 & she has her daughter working there & she can leave whenever she want but she only gives her employers 30 minutes to break which is certainly UNFAIR!

If I could it would get a ZERO, it's nasty all the way around from the facility to most employees especially the director, she has no education on how to speak to people much less on how to run her childcare. If you are thinking about this childcare, my advice is to turn around and RUN fast & far the opposite direction!!
