The Loma Prieta Community Foundation hosts limited afterschool programs in the Building Blocks yard. These programs are generally run by outside companies that use the BB yard to offer their programs. You can register for each program through each company, not through LPCF or Building Blocks. Your child does not need to be part of BB to take part in the afterschool programs, the age range of programs varies from preschoolers through elementary school kids.

Based on the Luma Kids Yoga Teacher Training model, each class offers age appropriate yoga, music and exploration of movement. Classes will have consistent themes each month and will also include activities such as literature, non-competitive games, dance, art and appreciation of nature. Guided visualizations, breath work and deep relaxation will be offered to promote a sense of calmness and well-being. By learning how to use their bodies and their breath to both relax and energize themselves, students gain a sense of empowerment in their bodies and life.
The Santa Clara County Library Bookmobile comes to Building Blocks every other Thursday during the school year at around 12:15.
SUMMER SCHEDULE: The Bookmobile will be visiting Building Blocks from 11:30 to 12:30 every other Thursday. In addition to access to the wonderful resources on the bookmobile, the librarians will be holding a special Summer Storytime. Come pick up your summer reading and stay for Storytime!
