Welcome to Building Blocks

We provide early education through  planned recreational learning and social activities suitable for your child's age, from six weeks to school age.  As you care for others, know that we are here for you.  The centers will remain open during inclement weather & other such unplanned events, so you can continue to provide top quality care to our communities without the additional stress of finding alternate childcare arrangements.

Owned by Stormont Vail Health, Building Blocks is an exclusive childcare service offered only to Full-Time Stormont Vail Team Members.

Building Blocks welcomes all military families that are associated with Child Care Aware of Kansas and the United States Department of Agriculture. We are licensed through Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and are enrolled as a Department of Children and Families (DCF) designated provider.
