About Mississippi Building Blocks

Mississippi Building Blocks (MBB) is a program designed to assist existing childcare centers in improving the school readiness of children. This is accomplished by improving teaching and learning in licensed child care centers and strengthening parenting skills.

Our qualified staff works with early childhood professionals to improve the quality of their practices and programs. Programs that participate in Mississippi Building Blocks will have the opportunity to:

- Improve classroom quality.
- Teachers will improve their instructional practices.
- Increase family engagement.
– Directors will strengthen their business and administrative practices.
– Children will develop age-appropriate knowledge and skills that will prepare them for school entry and life-long success.
Additionally, since MBB began in 2008 we have raised approximately $6 million dollars from Mississippi businesses who support our mission. The Barksdale Reading Institute and the Mississippi Economic Council are major champions of our early childhood education efforts.
