Building Blocks (formerly 4C of Southern Indiana) is a nonprofit serving 28 counties in southern Indiana. More than 40 years ago, 4C started as a true grassroots organization with a few local childcare directors and preschool teachers meeting to network and share information about childcare. 4C was incorporated in 1969. In the late 1990s, research about brain development in children identified issues around childcare as national priorities. 4C hired its first paid employees and the organization began to grow.
