Building Blocks Preschool is a tuition-based preschool for Fox C-6 resident children that are between the ages of 3-5 years. Our classrooms are located in various elementary schools throughout the district. Entrance requirements for Building Blocks include:
Must be a Fox C-6 School District resident.
Must be 3 years of age by July 31 of that school year.
Must be completely potty trained.
Parents must provide transportation.
*Students who are eligible for Kindergarten may have the opportunity to enroll in Building Blocks if they have a birthday within 30 days of the state age requirement (currently a July birthday). Registration for kindergarten eligible students opens one week after 3 year old registration opens.
Building Blocks operate Monday - Friday. Classroom hours vary by building:
Registration Fee: A non-refundable registration fee is collected each year in the amount of $50 per child. ($75 max for family)
Weekly tuition:Tuition is $150.00 per week. Payment is due on Friday, prior to week of service. If you have more than one child enrolled in Building Blocks, there is a 10% discount off the total tuition (siblings must be living in the same household).
You can pay by credit/debit card in your child's portal, or by personal check and/or money order. Please give a check or money order to your child's teacher. Building Blocks does not accept cash payments for tuition.
The weekly tuition will only be adjusted on weeks with scheduled days off school such as holidays, or school closures due to inclement weather. Payments will not be prorated for days missed due to illness, planned vacations, or any other absences.
Late Fee: If payment is not made by midnight on Monday, you will not be allowed to drop your child off on Tuesday and a $10 late fee will be assessed. Failure to make weekly payments may result in your child's enrollment being terminated. Any questions or concerns regarding weekly tuition may be addressed to the Building Blocks office staff.
NSF FEE: A $15.00 fee will be assessed on all 'insufficient funds' (NSF) checks and charged to the child's account. If we receive 2 NSF checks, it will become necessary for us to request all future payments in the form of a money order or credit card.
Character Kids Club
If you need before and after school care (Character Kids Club- CKC) Parents will need to register for that program separately. CKC is available to all Building Blocks families at an additional fee. More information can be found on the CKC website.
Please email or fax the following documents to the Building Blocks office once registration is opened for your child’s age group. (Please note any documents sent prior to the registration dates will not be accepted and will need to be resent after registration is opened.)
Copy of proof of residency (a utility bill OR a copy of lease or mortgage statement are the only acceptable documents)

List of parental contact information (Parents name, email and phone number) This information is important as we will need it to be able to contact you if there are issues with your paperwork and to be able to email you the registration form.
Once these documents are reviewed families will receive an email with the registration form. This registration form needs to be completed and will be used as the timestamp for placement in the program.
The Building Blocks office will contact families within a week with placement confirmation and information on how to pay the non-refundable registration fee and first week's tuition ($200 total). This payment needs to be paid within 3 days to reserve their spot in the program.
The Building Blocks program will follow the district’s health guidelines regarding COVID, mask-wearing, and quarantine policies. The Building Blocks program will not be refunding any COVID exposure resulting in a quarantine.
