The Importance of Block Building

Written by Layla Carter, kindergarten teacher

Block building is an essential element in Jubilee’s early learning curriculum. Young children are developing their fine motor skills, spatial awareness, as well as fundamental math and science skills. Block building advances these skills while encouraging teamwork, a sense of community, and parallel play. Kindergarten has built houses, skyscrapers, parking lots, and neighborhoods all with their imaginations. We can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
