Wendy Bhatia - Owner/ Program Coordinator
I have been working with children for over 31 years but, more importantly,
I make sure I learn something new everyday!
After 6 years of working in Human Resource at Macy's, I decided the best way
to help people develop to their fullest potential was starting at the beginning!
I then worked as a Child Care Center Director for about 12 years with different corporations.
Then about 20 years ago, my husband (a retired Chemistry Professor) and I decided
that we truly believed that giving children the right start would help determine their future
and we opened up Building Blocks in 1998.
Please let me also offer our own children as testimony
to our devoting our life to understanding children, parenting and education!
They all attended Dekalb Co. Kittredge Magnet School and graduated from Ga. Tech.
Our oldest daughter has an MBA from Northwestern and works as a Project Manager.
Our second daughter, is a doing her residency in Pediatrics in Tucson.
Our youngest son is tutoring children and pursuing a career in coding.
More important than their having done well academically,
we are proud of who they are, and what they are hoping to do with their lives.
From my human resource experience and my husband's working with college students,
we realized there were common factors that affect how people live life.
From early on we all need to be nurtured in a supportive environment that
cultivates healthy, positive and productive attitudes, perspectives and habits.
With this strong foundation, we are able to develop
the understanding and the tools needed to create the life we choose.
Thus, came about Building Blocks.
Our center is not just a business to us but an opportunity for us
to meet the child care and the parenting needs of our families.
We also hope to help with the overall guidance and development of children
to help prepare them for their lives ahead.
