Building Blocks

Building Blocks Child Care Center provides a warm, caring environment that allows your child to develop as an individual. We provide early education through planned recreational learning and social activities suitable for your child’s age, from six weeks to 5 years old.

Building Blocks is an enriching place thanks to our experienced and caring staff dedicated to caring for your child. We are located in downtown Topeka just west of the Statehouse in a 20,000-square-foot facility featuring a 4,000-square-foot multi-purpose room and three playgrounds.

The center participates in the USDA Federal Food Program for all children including infants. Our cooks prepare all meals in our on-site kitchen, and we serve two main meals and one snack each day.

The center is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and we don’t close for inclement weather, so there is no rushing around or missing work trying to find alternate arrangements for your child’s care those days.

Building Blocks is owned by Stormont Vail Health and provides child care for its employees, but enrollment at the center is open to the entire community.


All admissions are considered. Once enrolled, children are placed into classrooms according to available space and date of birth. Enrollment fees, an entrance meeting, and other appropriate paperwork must be completed before care.


All children are required to pay full-time rates. We do not offer part-time care. Additionally, all children staying more than 10 hours a day will be charged an additional fee.


Infants: $275 per week

Toddlers: $220 per week

Preschool: $200 per week

Payment for the full month must be made by the 5th of every month.

If you have multiple children enrolled, there is a 10 percent discount on the rate for the oldest child.

We accept Kansas Department for Children and Families. You must be pre-approved from DCF in writing before you can enroll.

Building Blocks welcomes all military families that are assocatied with Child Care Aware of Kanasas and the United States Department of Agriculture.


Building Blocks is a secure building with a locked entrance. Photo identification is required for pick-up of children by anyone other than a parent.
