Parent Testimonials

While seeking a new preschool for two of my three children (4 months and 4 years), I stumbled upon the Building Kidz Schools and their newest location, Redwood City. My family is in process of relocating to the Bay Area and Stephanie has been so accommodating! We were able to schedule a virtual tour of the school and met last week while we were in town for an in person tour.
The facility is clean, secure, and the staff is so friendly! Stephanie was extremely knowledgeable, welcoming, and you can tell that she truly cares about the school and the children.
Each classroom was beautifully designed, themed, and clean. We love the creative aspect our children will have here with career exploration, music, caring teachers and attentive staff.
We cannot wait for our relocation now that we have secured such a wonderful school. Our four year old asks daily when she gets to go back!

We were looking for a new daycare after a horrible small in home daycare experience. Our child would scream without stopping at the home daycare. after putting our kid in this daycare for three days. It was the most stressful situation I have ever dealt with. Needless to say I will never do another home daycare again.

I found Building Kidz and took a tour. I was a little hesitant due to covid but after hearing about their protocols I honestly feel it’s safer than a home daycare. The facility is new and they do deep cleanings every night as well as regular testing of teachers for covid. This is much more stringent than a lot of daycare protocols I’ve seen.

I was also afraid because my son was 11 months he might have issues adjusting especially because of what happened at the home daycare.

Both stefanie and elissa were AMAZING in helping my kid adjust. It took my son Ten minutes the first day and after a week he doesn’t even cry at drop off! Which is saying a lot considering he wouldn’t stop crying with his previous daycare. They take tons of pictures and videos of my kid so I don’t feel like I’m missing out and he ALWAYS looks super happy. They’ll notice small things like a small rash or if his temperament has changed due or getting shots and keep me informed.

If anyone is looking for a good daycare I highly recommend this one.

Our family LOVES Building Kidz School. We are so happy to find a center that’s meets all of our expectations! We love their low teacher:student ratio and structured day with fun activities. My child has already learned so many new skills at the center. The school also uses The Brightwheel app which lets me follow my child’s day. The teachers and staff have been nothing but amazing to us and very flexible. I would recommend this center to all families!

Our family absolutely loves Building Kidz! As a first-time mom, I had reservations about putting our daughter in daycare. We started with a nanny but the schedules didn’t work. We toured several centers in Roswell and were BLOWN AWAY by Building Kidz, which we lovingly call BK in our house.
Being at BK totally changed my perception about what daycare is — and what it isn’t. I initially wanted a nanny because I didn’t want to feel like some other people were raising my child while I was at work. But in reality, a good daycare isn’t just caring for your child, they are teaching them too. Even little babies get stimulation and activities that help them learn social skills and other development skills. Our daughter has been at BK since she was 12 weeks old and now she is nearly 3 years old. We love the focus on performing arts and how BK really makes each family feel like part of a community. I highly recommend Building Kidz to any family I meet. It’s such an amazing place for children.

We have been bringing our preschool aged son to this facility for the past couple years (first when it was Kids Camp, and through the transition to Building Kids). It is in such a convenient location for us in the EDH business park. Ms. Daria has been an incredible teacher for our son. He absolutely loves her and the two of them have a great bond. She is very responsible, easy to work with and amazing with the kids. We love that we can do drop in, and bring him whenever it works best for us. Our son also really enjoys the music and dance curriculum. They do lots of fun projects, and the facility is very well set up. Highly recommend! Don’t let those old bad reviews from the previous ownership stop you from visiting this location and checking them out for yourself.

Great daycare/preschool. My toddler loves this place. The student/teacher ratio is good and the teachers seem to genuinely love children. The owner is incredibly responsive and responds to any calls/texts in a very timely manner. They have a routine and curriculum, while also being flexible. The interior is super cute. The outside play area is just alright, but they take the kids for a lot of walks and bike rides outside of the facility (in a very controlled and safe manner).
They don’t provide meals , but they do provide a morning and an afternoon snack. My husband and I have been very happy with Building Kidz.

We just moved to EDH and I was in need of a day care for my daughter. Cindi and her team were able to give me a tour immediately and my daughter started just a few days after. The sign up process was seamless, the facility is very clean and organized. The teachers are all great and the fact that they use Brightwheel is a huge plus. I receive notifications and pictures all day long and this makes he feel very comfortable. The facility and the program are great!!

After visiting many, many daycares in the area… I am so happy that I found Building Kidz!!! Ms. Amber gave me a wonderful tour without any notice and took the time to answer all of my questions! Her personality made me feel 100% comfortable leaving my little guy!!! The entire staff is amazing and my 3.5 year old is learning so much!!! All of the teachers take the time to know my son and our entire family!!! All the kiddos are great as well!

My daughter has been going here for about 3 months now. All of the staff at Building Kidz are great. They ensure every drop off goes smoothly. My daughter has been home since Covid started and was shy and timid and frankly behind on her words. She has flourished since being there and they take the time to make sure she is ok every time I drop off and pick up. I cannot say enough good things about Building Kidz and their staff. Thank you Amber for loving my girl.

This place is amazing for your littles!! Mr David, Ms Joanna and all the others have really special gifts with kids. And David is a great guy. He helped me out a lot as a single father going through a really tough custodial fight with all sorts of stuff. But most of all they prepared my son so so perfectly for kindergarten that he’s just excelling beyond my wildest hopes and dreams! My son loved his time at building kidz and in this day and age it’s really hard a parent to trust people but David and his team also excelled at doing that for this daddy! I don’t think I would have faired so well in my custodial battles if I had a different day care for my son at the time. I can’t say enough good stuff about this particular location and there are not enough words in our current lexicon to express just how very grateful I am for our time with building kidz or Roseville-east. Thank you so much.

We love this school, as does our son. Not only is Mr. David (the owner),kind and compassionate, he is patient and loving. I can’t say enough about the positive influence he has had on my son. The structure the school provides is conducive to the development of a well adjusted child. I highly recommended it.

My daughter honestly LOVES this school. I was very sad when we were moving from Bay Area where both of my kids attended an awesome daycare – I was sure I would never find anything comparable to what they had but I was so wrong. My son went to TK and my daughter had to start new preschool by herself so I was so worried… she LOVES LOVES LOVES it at Building Kidz! She pretends she doesn’t see me when I come to pick her up! A little embarrassing I know:)
The owner-David is very accommodating and so nice! Since I moved here just recently I didn’t know the area and since my move I found couple other preschool way closer to my house but I’ve decided to keep my daughter at Building Kidz because I feel it’s a great match! Highly recommend!

This place is amazing! I am a first-time mom to a 15 month old. I was so nervous about daycare and not being with my son. The owner David and all the teachers are so patient and kind. They’ve been supportive with our need for flexibility due to my irregular schedules. My son attended for 3 months and was so happy! We got frequent updates through the Brightwheel app. I loved being sent pictures and videos of my son enjoying his day. It made me feel like I was there with him when I couldn’t be!

The facility is clean and safe. The adults are trustworthy and kind. Highly recommend! I only wish we could go more, but our financial situation changed.

My daughter loves coming here. They do so much for the kids and Teacher Anna Sheafe is great! She really makes the effort to keep her students clean and tidy, I can tell because whenever I pick up my daughter, she is just the way I left her. Most places let the kids get dirty and run around with their hair all over their faces and covered in snots, they have their jackets on at a 80 degrees weather, not here! Its the little “mommy” things that matter and teacher Anna makes sure your kids are taken care of. Its a good home, away from home for your little preschooler. I am happy my daughter is with teacher Anna.

My daughter attended Building Kidz of South San Francisco from when she was 7 months old until just a couple of weeks ago, she’s now 2.5 years old. Our son (6 months) also started daycare there at 4 months. We had a wonderful experience with Building Kidz of SSF. The teachers are great. All of the teachers, even the ones that were not instructors of their classes, knew their names. It is an incredibly friendly and warm environment. Both my husband and I work full time so to find a daycare/preschool that we could trust our children with was a huge win for us. We would have continued to keep them at this school, however, we just moved to San Carlos. We actually transferred my son to the Building Kidz San Mateo location because of our positive experience. Thank you to the entire staff at SSF for making our daughter and son’s time there so wonderful.

Leaving your baby in the hands of anyone besides your own parents, well… we haven’t even done that yet, but we will Mom I promise!! They have provided great care to our 6 month old and to us by always responding to our questions through their app and keeping us informed on when he’s sleeping/ eating/ and pooping , which makes us feel that we are actually there! Can’t be any happier with them and their service! Strict COVID precautions are also nice to see. Temperature checks, masks for all providers… I feel safe leaving my most prized possession with them!

Our son went to Building Kidz SSF from age 11-18 months and we were super happy with our experience. From day 1 the teachers all knew our baby by name and seemed to really care. Our boy would go happily into day care every single day, no tears, and in fact would excitedly say their names in happy anticipation when getting ready in the morning.
I loved the app they use for keeping us in the loop every day on what he was up to/ how his meals and naps went – the messaging function was a really quick and easy way to communicate with staff.
COVID protocols have adapted over the months, and have helped us feel safe sending our baby there.
Overall we have been so glad we chose Building Kidz SSF and highly recommend to to anyone looking for care. We are so sad we have moved away and lost this great local resource!

We recently started our 1yo at Building Kidz, and couldn’t have asked for a better place to send our kid. Mrs Sundari, the director, is so caring towards our child and accommodating to our preferences, and she really put us at ease as first time parents sending our kid to a day care for the first time.

Similarly, the Infants’ room teachers are all very caring towards our child and accommodating of our preferences. We are looking forward to a long relationship with Building Kidz!

Our 22 month old daughter started her day care here and like every first time parent, we were anxious about her transition but all thanks to Miss Iris and Miss Ebun, for making it so smooth and easy for our daughter. Special thanks to Miss Sundari for being so accommodative and caring. They put us at ease by taking really good care of our kid. We really liked the brightwheel app they use to keep us posted about our daughter’s day to day activities in school. Miss Sundari, Miss Raji and other management staff know most of the kids by their name and even their parents. This really shows how much interest and care they take towards every child. We feel she is in a safe place.

Thanks to all the teachers and staff of building kidz !

We love Building Kidz MV!!
I’ve been meaning to write a review here a while ago. My daughter has started here 1.5 years ago, since she was 6 months old. From the moment we brought her to the infant room, we felt the love and caring from all the teachers. Each and every teacher there were so great and my daughter was in love with them. In the toddler class, she is really happy. Ms Iris and Ms Ebun are simply the best, and they are doing everything they can to make the kids happy and engaged.

I want to say a big thank you to Ms. Sundary and Ms. Raji in particular – for being always available for parents, and support then during this time.
We really appreciate everything that Building Kidz has done for us, and for helping us shaping our daughter little personality in such a good way! Thank you!

I have reviewed Building Kidz previously, but since COVID-19, my son stopped going, for obvious reasons. BK recently opened up to all students, per the SC County guidelines. Today was my son’s first day back. It was seamless. BK really stepped up their check-in process to adhere to the CDC guidelines and safety precautions. The health screening in the morning (temperature check and logging) was perfect, lines to tell indicate 6ft, and staff at the ready. Hand washing stations at conveniently located near the classrooms (these are permanent washing stations, not temporary, so it looks great and sanitary). Everyone in face masks, contact less check-ins through the app. It was great.

Ms. Euben was very helpful today, as we transitioned back, we needed extra help and attention. The teachers all showed they missed and cared for my son. It was great and heartwarming. It is the level of comfort that I needed as a parent bringing back my child to an unknown environment. They took care of all the necessities for a proper and safe return to school. I am very fortunate to have found Building Kidz. Their response to the pandemic is great, so much so that it provided an avenue of normalcy for the families. The sooner that we all can get to the “new normal” whatever that may entail, the quicker the transition will be to some sort of normalcy.

Thank you to all the staff, each of you, you all have really made the transition in uncertain territory great. I also want to commend Ms. Raji, the Director, for her great communication via email. It is professional and really goes above and beyond.

The teachers at building kids are the best. Our son joined when he was two and our daughter when she was five. Teacher Sami is the absolute best for our toddler. He loves her and he loves school. Director Marissa and the teacher Aliveah have done an amazing job supporting my kindergartner through this very challenging year (2021). She loves learning, has been able to take all her zoom classes with the support of a teacher and has been able to play with friends her age through this whole year. They’ve celebrated all the holidays and milestones together. The support Building Kidz has provided has meant the world to our family.

I have 2 kids in Building Kidz, one who just graduated and one who is still there. This school is awesome, bottom line. It’s a little scary leaving your small child in the care of others for the first time and it’s quite the relief to find a place where you know your children are in good hands every single day.

When we started looking at preschools we knew we wanted to find a place where the kids actually learned things but also had fun doing it. We toured a few schools and when we got to Building Kidz we knew we had found the one. The curriculum is taught with songs, art, and theater along with lots of outside play time. My son left preschool with a great foundation for kindergarten including counting to one hundred, strong knowledge of the alphabet, basic addition and subtraction, and sight words. His ability to listen, focus, and follow directions has grown leaps and bounds over the past 3 years.

We have found the school to be clean (I mean, they got our kids safely through a pandemic), responsive, and flexible. The best review of all is probably that my kids actually looks forward to going to school every day. Thank you Building Kidz and all your wonderful staff and teachers for caring for my kids and teaching them that learning can be fun!

We have nothing but great things to say about Building Kidz of Scotts Valley. The only reason we took our daughter out was because we moved out of state. The teachers and staff are great and very attentive to specific needs. Our daughter still misses her friends and teachers.

My son has been attending building kidz since June and we can’t say enough about the positive impact the teachers and the school had on his behavior, development and personality. The staff and the teachers are very caring toward the kids. My son started in Ms. Gianna’s class and then transitioned into Ms. Jamie’s class and had a seamless transition. He loves every part of coming to school and being with the kids. We are so grateful for the teachers, amazing staff and management. We really like the balanced mix of preforming arts and academics. The kids put on a really entertaining winter show and our son was singing the songs all through out winter break. I can’t recommend this place enough for anyone looking for child care in San Mateo.

Second review here because my daughter started Building Kidz SM not too long ago. This review is for all parents out there who are thinking of enrolling their BABY. Trust me, I was super hesitant (even though my son attends the school already). Not because I didn’t trust the school but the fact that it’s my baby that I’m sending off and it was also during the pandemic. She was only 6 months when she first started in Jan 2021. Let me tell you, as soon as I met Ms. Daisy, she made me feel at ease right off the bat. You can tell she was confident and knew what she was doing. Every request or concern I had, she addressed it quickly. They use the app called Bright Wheel and I ALWAYS get updates and pictures daily. I know when she last ate, when she last had a diaper change, etc. Her baby room team is amazing with all the babies too. My daughter smiles at every single teacher she sees (I think that’s a pretty solid sign she likes the school.) We’re not allowed in the school at the moment because of covid protocols, but they’re extremely good about taking temps for the kids before entering and sanitizing their shoes/clothes. Ms. Jessica (director’s assistant) is fantastic. She knows all the kids and all the kids love her. She’s very on top of everything and is always there to update us about our kids. The school has been great about keeping everything cleaned and making sure all their staff is vaccinated. Like I said in my first review, just go and take a tour, see for yourself! Hope this helps you make a decision because I know it’s tough when it comes to trusting others with your kids. We do appreciate all the staff there. Good luck!

My daughter loves it here. I can not praise my daughters school enough. Jay has been attending Building Kidz for almost 3 years. We are so happy to see how happy she becomes when we pull into the parking lot. She comes home with awesome projects and sings songs on the ride home she learned in school. It’s even better that that we see the same teachers everyday. We were fortunate the school remained open during COVID. They made great changes to keep families and staff safe. The best thing was our baby girl being sprayed with a non chemical mist on her shoes and clothes to prevent additional germs coming in. Jay started off in the toddler program and had moved on to preschool. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a great family oriented, positive, healthy and happy school with loving and nurturing staff. We adore all of the teachers and love the open communication with the directors and us.

My twin boys reached the grand age of 2.5 years and it was clear that they needed more intellectual and social exposure than we could provide at home. However, given that our elderly parents are living with us, we had to ensure everyones safety in these trying times.

We looked at several daycares before deciding on Building Kidz in San Carlos. Here’s what we love about it:
1) It’s a brand new facility with only 10-12 students. That meant the kids had plenty of room to play in a safe, socially distanced manner. Even though there are a few more students now, the school has divided them into 2 classrooms. The student-teacher ratio is very much better than what we found in other schools.
2) The school is good about following drop off/pick up protocols, washing the kids hands regularly and maintaining overall cleanliness in the facility.
3) The teachers are AMAZING and I’ve seen quite a few with my daughter! They are great with the kids and my kids surprise me everyday by how much they’ve learnt. My 2.5 year old can recognize and make letters with shapes!
4) I love that the curriculum includes music and dance. Both my boys enjoy that and look forward to those lessons.
5) It took less than a week for my home schooled boys to get acclimated and look forward to going to school everyday!

We are very happy with this daycare and 100% recommend this to other families.

My daughter started at Building Kidz San Carlos a few months ago. The teachers and management have been nothing but wonderful. The teachers are loving and make preschool fun for the kids. The school uses the Brightwheel app to connect with parents and there are always photos and updates on what your child is doing. There is a planned curriculum that the school follows and fun learning activities for the kids. I highly recommend this school.

My 2 year old daughter has been at Building Kidz San Carlos for 3 months now. We have been really happy with the preschool. Our daughter has turned from being very shy to be a lot more outgoing. She only spoke mandarin prior to coming to building Kidz, now she can understand a lot of English and starts to speak some English too. And she seems to be very happy whenever we drop her off or pick her up. The teachers are wonderful, they are patient and caring. I highly recommend Building Kidz San Carlos!

My son (3.5 yo) has been at Building Kidz since April’21. The administration and teachers are great. My son has spent time in two classes and teachers are loving, caring and fun. Communication with parents is frequent with regular updates, activity photos, etc., through the Brightwheel app that works well. Teachers have always welcomed our curiosities and provided prompt and thorough feedback. My son has definitely become more expressive and social, and has picked up some good habits after joining Building Kidz.

My daughter has been going to Building Kidz for 2 years. When she started 4 half days at age 3, she was in a smaller classroom with very loving teachers, Ms Halie and Ms Katy. She learned all her letters, and by the end of the first year, she was confidently singing and dancing during their end of school musical program.

Her second year has been outstanding. She moved to a bigger room with more kids, and all the teachers have been so kind, patient, and engaged. She goes full days and now gets Spanish and science lessons, in addition to the music and dance classes. She spends a lot of time playing outside, and I have stacks upon stacks of art that she has created at school. She taught ME how to count to 20 in Spanish. She has friends. She listens better, asserts herself politely, is starting to read words, and is SO ready to start kindergarten in the fall.

Building Kidz is a fantastic school. Go see them for a school tour and see how well they combine an organized curriculum with music, art, and free play. We will miss the teachers so much when we leave, and I hope they know their lessons and love have really made an impact on our lives. Thank you, Building Kidz!!

Building Kids prepares children for making excellent transitions into elementary school as well as providing a platform for learning and growing every day at school.

My son attended BK Imagination Station only for his last year of Pre-K and happy that he did. He went from being very shy to a talkative child and is now doing well in Kindergarten.

My daughter attended this preschool and is going go be attending kindergarten soon. I am amazed at how much this school has prepared her for the transition. Not only is the educational program excellent but they are a genuinely, wonderful and caring group of people. The School director is always positive, organized and has a great sense of responsibility. All the teachers are so loving and caring. They never fail to show great enthusiasm towards the children and they have made a positive impact on our daughter’s life.

As a parent, there is nothing better than knowing your child is in good hands. This school ensures us that we never have to worry about our child’s happiness and safety. She is always dropped off and picked up with a smile on her face.

We are so impressed with the curriculum, from science, math, spanish, art, dancing, music and theatre. This is exactly what my daughter needed and I know it will help her to be successful in kindergarten. We love what this school has done for our daughter and we wish that we could have kept her in this school forever.

This preschool is absolutely amazing. My daughter adore each and every teacher she came into contact with at this school.

This preschool provided a solid foundation in academics, social skills, and teaching them the fundamental of dreaming big using there imagination skills. My daughter excelled in this school with the various daily activities. One of her favorite class in the morning is Science class. One of her favorite project was getting to grow a bean from a seed. She learned how to pot, plant, water, and watched it grow. With the diverse culture of where we live, I am very please that Building Kidz offer to teach basic Spanish at this level. I catch my daughter sometimes counting in Spanish or even saying just the simple words like thank you. There are so many other enriching activities that goes on everyday at this preschool that sometimes it feels like 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM isn’t enough time. Dance Class, Music Class, Art Class, Performance Recitals….I wish I got to experience this when I was her age.

To see that my daughter enjoyed preschool this much makes my heart melt. It’s the little things in life that counts the most. Knowing that Building Kidz made such a huge footprint in my daughter life make me proud as a mother for finding a preschool like this one. Entrusting your precious little ones is a huge step of letting go as a mother. It was the best decision I made to put my daughter at this preschool.

I am truly thankful for Ms. Raeli and her superhero teachers.

My two boys started going to Building Kidz in Daly City since 1 year old. My oldest son is graduating this year to kindergarten. Building Kidz has been a family to us. We are happy with the director and all the teachers. The teacher turn over ratio is low, most of the teachers we know for more than 3-4 years. Both kids love go to school, each morning they can’t wait to get to school.
They have learned a lot with the preschool curriculum that building kids offers. The teachers also pay close attention to children development. My son’s teacher suggested to have my son checked out for his speech since he was falling behind. We started speech therapy when he was 3. He has now successfully completed his therapy and he has been rated above 90th percentile for both math and verbal kindergarten entrance exams with a private school.
The school kept open even during spring 2020 COVID SIP periods when other schools and daycares were closed which was a big help to working parents. I can’t say enough how much I appreciate the teachers and school for keeping our children safe and happy during the difficult times.

Thank you all!

This daycare/preschool is amazing. Our son has just graduated. He was a student there for the year of 2020-2021. Our experience was nothing short of amazing. The carrying and nurturing environment and teachers’ attention were superb. We consider ourselves extremely fortunate because our son had the wonderful experience in this preschool.
The curriculum there is a well balanced combo of play/learn time. Kids are progressing well academically and developmentally. Great attention to the safety protocols. Teachers there are making sure that the conditions are as safe as possible during the pandemic. We recommend ‘Building Kidz’ wholeheartedly to all parents out there.
P.S. It’s also priced very reasonably.

I absolutely love this daycare center they’re amazing with the kids, my kids love it here. Megan the owner is great with the kids and she also has great customer service. The app they use brightwheel is great you can communicate with the staff by message and they send you updates on your children while there they also send you photos of your kiddos. The staff is great as well the infant does such a great job with my 5 month old. When I pick him up the majority of the time someone is spending one on one time with him he couldn’t be in better hands, the girls also did an amazing job helping my daughter learn to walk they were supper patient with her so she could move over to the one year old room. Same goes for the one year staff they’re always paying close attention to my little one she loves it there especially now that she can get around. They’re also one of the only centers that picks up at my son’s elementary they take him and pick him which is a huge plus. He does his home work there as well as music which they have twice a week. All I can say is that I’m truly blessed I found this place….

We are foster parents and have had over 30 kids in our care over the last several years. Megan and the staff at building kids are a true blessing to us. I especially love the care our now 10 month old little one receives. We have had her since she was 3 months old and the infant staff here is awesome. I c ant say enough good things about Building Kidz of chandler .

I LOVE THIS DAYCARE !!!
My granddaughter has been going to Building Kidz for a couple months. I can’t say enough about how happy we are with the care she receives. We’ve experienced our share of daycares in the Chandler area and can say by far Building Kidz is the best. I love the whole set up of the classrooms. Love that there is a cafeteria that the children sit and eat together at little tables. The food given is freshly made and healthy. The facility is always clean and kept in order.
I am so thankful to each and everyone at Building Kidz that care for my granddaughter. They are genuinely nice people. They never look over worked or stressed out. I love the notifications throughout the day on an app of the food given, diaper changes and cute pictures with her playing. I could go on and on but Most importantly my granddaughter is happy and loves her teachers.
Thank you Building Kidz for the wonderful care.
If you are reading reviews and trying to find a daycare, look no more. You will be very happy you found Building Kidz as I am.

One happy Grandma

I switched my son over to Building Kidz after having a not so great experience with another preschool in the area, and I cannot say enough good things!

My son can’t wait to go to school every day and instead of crying when I drop him off like the last school, he cries when he has to leave.

They have a great staff to student ratio and teachers really go above and beyond with my son. He doesn’t nap well at school and he can be difficult to keep occupied which were points of stress for teachers at his last school and they did not hesitate to let me know- he is pretty intellectually advanced for a 2 year old (but still acts like a two year old with the occasional meltdown!) so sometimes needs extra attention/ stimulation to stay content and engaged, which the teachers and staff never seem inconvenienced by. Instead of asking me to do things differently at home so it’s easier for them, the staff and teachers at Building Kidz have come up with ways to keep him challenged and they seem happy to do it. I’ve never seen a teacher look stressed or overwhelmed like I regularly did at the previous school we attended.

I have seen positive changes in my son since he now is better supported, happier and thriving in his classroom, and I’m very thankful that the caring staff has taken extra time to work with him.

I could go on all day with more reasons why we love this school, but here are a few-

-They have an app where you get pictures and updates on your kids through the day. It includes their activities, what they ate, when they napped, went potty/ diapers, etc. I love checking it and seeing pics of him smiling and happy with his friends in his class. 🙂

-They have a music class!

-They do shows and have the kids perform. Their Christmas play was the cutest thing in the world and so well put together. No idea how they managed to get all those little toddlers to follow directions so well! It was amazing and absolutely adorable.

-Pricing was actually better than other places I checked out- although I would be willing to pay more, they really are that great.

-SUPER CLEAN and SUPER ORGANIZED. The whole place is clean and just looks bright and happy when you walk in- first thing I noticed when we did the initial tour. We were all getting sick about once a month when he was at the last school, but it’s been about 5 months since we’ve been at Building Kidz and he hasn’t been sick once.

This school truly is the best and I am so glad I found them! 🙂

Both my girls have been going there for over a year. We have always had a great experience.
They cater to my daughters diet, no meat.
I also feel comfortable leaving my 4 month baby there. Anytime I ask them to help me with something they are receptive with a positive attitude.
I love the arts and crafts my three year old brings home. She is able to be creative, messing, and learn about clean up.
Potty training was tough for my middle. They were super helpful!

Ah Building Kidz. You deserve 10 stars and beyond. I didn’t know how much I really appreciated the school, the staff, and the curriculum. Recently planning to move, so I toured about 5-6 schools in the east bay, mainly in Castro Valley and Hayward area. And base on their Yelp reviews (4.5 stars to 5 stars), you would assume the school can be comparable. Oh man I was totally wrong. I have not seen ONE school as good as Building Kidz. Seriously.

Academic achievement is HUGE in our family. I knew the multiplication table in kindergarten, can do two digit division in first grade. Ok let’s stop bragging about me. So you get the pic. I want my daughter to be as smart if not smarter. She is currently 3 years and 3 months. She knows her alphabets, when I say know her alphabets I’m not saying just singing the ABC song, she can spell out street names and signs in front of the stores. She can count to 20 with no problem. All colors and shapes. Vocabularies are amazing. Really. When we toured other schools recently, they all said my daughter is very advanced and could even go with the 4 years old class.

The school itself is amazing! Every age group has their separate classroom with windows and doors. Not just separated by a book case or toy shelf, I’m talking about real, legit rooms. New both babies have their own crib for nap. Completely separate from the preschool side. And they take kids as young as 6 weeks!!! OMG! Their playground/ yard is HUGE. When I toured other schools, I wasn’t impressed by any of the playground. We’ve been spoiled here 🙁

My daughters been coming since 1 year old. They potty trained her for me after she turned 2. Yes it was very easy and quick. I think 2-3 months? Going from full diaper to full potty trained. No BS.

Another BIG comparison is their curriculum. They are big on art projects. Every semester my daughter has these 3 inch binders full of her art work. They have outside teachers who come in and teach dance and music class (free) which they have a big performance for every year. Spanish class (free), I think they will start French this fall. For sports class like gymnastic and soccer, they come once a week but parents will have to pay a little extra so it’s optional, which I don’t mind at all. These schools I toured recently don’t have music and and art 🙁 very sad and most of them don’t bring in outsider to teach gymnastic and soccer, even sadder 🙁 🙁

Their tuition include breakfast, lunch and 2-3 snacks a day! Omg where can I freaking find a school like this? Why can’t you just open another one in Castro Valley area? They are in high demand! So sad we’re moving. And we’ve been dragging it out since we can’t find any good schools 🙁 we’re going to be so sad when we leave… :'( Sigh….

I may be in the “honeymoon phase”, but I so far LOVE this school. My child is only starting week 2 in the toddler room, and we couldn’t be happier. This is the third day care we have enrolled in, and I finally feel like we found the perfect place! The teachers put the kids first. They are prepared, on a good routine, knowledgeable and confident. It helps give me (first time mom) piece of mind that my baby is being well taken care of in a safe, clean, social environment. And the brightwheel app is AMAZING – I get an update almost every hour with pictures throughout the day. I will try updating this review in a few months when we get more established, but for the first time, I finally feel truly comfortable and okay with leaving my child at day care. Thank you.

Update: we have been at Building Kidz for almost 3 months now, and we still love it. I can’t say enough about the teachers in the infant/toddler room – they are absolutely amazing! The place is cleaned nightly by a cleaning crew, and I always see the teachers cleaning as well – so the cleanliness and sanitation is top notch. We are so happy to have found Building Kidz – we hope to have another little one in the next few years, and I already know where his/her daycare will be!!
Thanks again, Building Kidz. You ROCK!

I had posted a review last year when my son started at this school, but I feel like I have to write again about how happy I am to send my son to this school specially with Covid time! I couldn’t trust to put my son in a school due to Covid, but I’m very happy with this school’s protocol . They are very clean and they make sure to check kids temperature before they enter the school, they spray their hands and sole of the shoe with sanitizer. Teachers make sure to keep kids masks on to keep everyone safe. They had asked me to show negative Covid results once kids came back from Christmas break which I thought was great! I felt relieved I didn’t have to worry about kids coming back sick after a long break. The director Karen is Awesome!! Very professional and friendly! The owner sangita Hingorani is great and very understanding! I met all the teachers there and they are amazing! My son has learned so much the last year! I encourage every parent to check this school if they are looking for a child center for their kids. Very very very happy with it!

My son Tyson has gone to Building Kidz since he was 10 months old and is now a bit over 4 years old. I really liked our teachers over the years, especially Ms Mary and Ms Rosa, who have both looked after him and genuinely care about his growth and development. Ms. Mary has been especially helpful in this past year; she is a trusted resource towards my son’s development (as he is neuro atypical/with ASD). I felt comfortable leaving him at Building Kidz while I worked full time. One of my favorite things that they’ve implemented is the use of an app that allows me to see hourly pictures and videos of my son while I’m at work. It’s very reassuring to see what activities my son is doing, what meals and snacks he’s gotten, and how his naptime has been for a fairly anxious first time mom like myself. I also loved that there is some curriculum and structured activities every day to promote learning or has a holiday theme. During the summer sometimes they will have bounce house days, inflatable pool days, and BBQs for the kids. Their playground area is very large-there is an area for each age and classroom. I also like that they incorporate music lessons, art time, dance teachers, and theater into the weekly schedule.
I’m impressed with how well they have been able to handle the school during the pandemic. They always take my son’s temperature at the door and parent can use the app to attest to a lack of symptoms before drop off. The director, Karen, always has a friendly, welcoming face.
My son has had a lot of lovely memories at Building Kidz and has made friends here over the years. I would definitely recommend this school to other parents.

My son loves coming to Building Kidz every day. The teachers and staff are very friendly and helpful. They are following the CDC guidelines and do frequent health checks now. They post frequent updates with the mobile app, like check in/out, meals, pictures. I am amazed to see all the creative and educational activities. There are also monthly updates for all the fun things happening.

I had considered Building Kidz in Livermore when I had visited Workday HQ onsite in Pleasanton for a potential job opportunity. I evaluated which community to join and was set to choose Livermore as my destination. I met with the owner and immediately understood that Building Kidz is a different type of preschool that is not only dedicated to building a whole child but that whole child to help create whole families. Building Kidz in Livermore to me represented a place where families can build families together with a well thought out curriculum and dedicated staff who work there. At the end, the sad part is not that I withdrew from an opportunity from Workday, but I was not able to have my children join Building Kidz. I am looking forward to someone opening a Building Kidz in Texas.

All of the staff is amazing and so good with the kids. They are always doing so many fun activities and I am always so impressed with what my son learns while being at school. They have always been very clean but now they are doing even more to keep everyone safe during this time. Making the children wash their hands extra, checking temperatures throughout the day, etc. Following all CDC guide lines! I am so thankful that my son is apart of such a great school! 🙂

The facility is clean and bright and open. My daughter felt comfortable right away and the teachers are amazing!
I love that I can get updates throughout the day, I get notifications of her meals and bathroom breaks. When I pick her up she is always in a great mood and eager to let me know what she did that day.
In short, it is an awesome preschool!

Such a wonderful lovely school. I have a baby that started at 3 months. Wonderful staff and always on top of letting me know what is going on with her activities through the brightwheel app they have. I love that I can reach out her teacher through the app. With COVID restrictions they have been very very prepared. I love my daughter and want her to be safe. There was some scares with COVID a outbreak. There are restrictions for a reason but other then that the staff is great and such a great location. No traffic to pick up baby girl from daycare.

My very attached-to-mommy daughter loves this place. I was reluctant to start her in day care because I wasn’t sure how she was going to do. She would cry anytime I dropped her off at daycare at the gym. So the thought of actually leaving her scared me. After touring the school and meeting with Angelina, my husband and I decided to move forward. Angelina and her staff are very caring and my daughter LOVES THEM! She gets excited to go to school. I definitely recommend building kids rancho cordova. We recently moved and I was considering moving her to a school closer, but can’t quite imagine not taking her somewhere else.

This review is long overdue. I have my 4 year old enrolled since July 2020. Building kidz is an amazing preschool. I love that the director, Miss Felicia always greets us with a big smile and is super friendly and welcoming. I have seen so much growth and manners in my son since he started. Miss Kellie, their teacher, is also super amazing. Very kind and honest. She let me know when my son was struggling a little bit so I could help him more at home which I really appreciated because it showed me she really cares about his education. I know when I leave my son here he is in good hands and will have a day full of fun and learning. I love that they offer brightwheel which is an app that gives updates on your child about naps, snacks, and they post pictures of what they are learning through out the day! Also I like that Miss Felicia can write messages to keep parents updated with important information and things going on. They do accept child action as well which is great for low income families like myself! I really recommend building kidz of elk grove to anyone!

Hi just started my son here last week. This was my son’s first day care at 20 months old and he was very anxious when we left him the first day. Buidling Kids has shown nothing but patience and understanding with him. Every time I go to pick him up I notice the teachers cuddling with him,holding him so he can feel comforted. My son is super stubborn so I am sure it will take him time to get acclimated but I am glad that he has familiarized himself with the staff and surrounding already. I also love that their pricing has different options on different hour intervals. It totally worked out for me. Would totally recommend this place 🙂

Our twin daughter started their new venture in May when they were 22 months old. We soon found our previous worries were artificial – The twin started to enjoy the new world right away. The staffs are genuinely kind and caring. They never missed labeling or maintaining together my kids’ items. The classroom and playground are far more spacious and beautiful than several other daycares we checked. The owner genuinely loves kids and treats them like her own.

Our 4-year old is attending this Building Kidz Palo Alto South right now and we love it! It’s a truly gem in this area with 3 spacious playgrounds, a giant sand pit and plenty of activities. They have vivid yellow bench outside which is perfect for lunch time, especially during pandemic.

They also have clean and well-decorated indoor classrooms with a theater and a playroom, I saw they use roomba frequently so it’s always tidy and clean.

More importantly, the teachers there are all very caring and friendly. Ms Cindy and Ms Yvett are beloved by the kids. Every morning our LO is very excited to enter the school.

I also like their COVID protocol. With a small group of kids, taking temperature everyday and washing hands constantly, I feel a little bit more relieved when sending my LO there. We feel super lucky to find this place and highly recommend!

We started sending our son to Building Kidz of Palo Alto (BKPA) since July 2021 and we absolutely love the experience. He is extremely happy to go to school everyday and this has been a big positive change from his prior pre-schools. The teachers and curriculum is one of the finest with focus on all round development of the kid.

As a parent I am incredibly happy and humbled to see my son’s progress in the last 6 months. I have seen our son grow and evolve to be a kind and confident kid. Our trust and confidence in BKPA is so high that we have decided to send our daughter to the same school. Kudos to the entire management team and teachers for the personal touch of care.
I highly recommend BKPA to prospective families.

Our son has been going to Building Kidz, Palo Alto for last 6 months and absolutely loves it there! We were nervous parents, sending our son to a day care for the first time, that too in these covid times, but Ms Vibhuti & Ms Priya went out of their way to make sure he settles in well and we were kept well posted of his day-to-day progress (including his gradual improvement in nap schedule). His class teachers Ms Trini and Ms Yanely have been wonderful in engaging him in activities throughout the day, and he adores them and has made lots of friends in his class. He wants to go there on weekends too now 🙂 BKPA has been such a blessing to us, and I’m so thankful for everything they do over and above what is required to run a day care. Thank you so much!

Our daughter has been going to Building Kidz of Palo Alto for close to a year now. She is in the 4-5 year olds class and goes half days. She loves her school – the teachers, the friends, the routine, all of it! She gets a lot of positive reinforcement from the school, especially from Ms Priya.

She has made some good friends at school! One of them has become an especially close friend. They get picked up at the same time and have a whole pickup-time routine of playing for a few mins and hugs afterwards. They even do regular playdates at home!

Overall, we are very happy with BKPA and would recommend the school.

We wanted our child in a pre-school/day care that we trust and can be confident that our child is safe, happy, learning, and well cared for. Building Kidz of West Hayward is all that and more. Sundari, the program director, and all the teachers are great. Everyone is very caring, patient, and responsive.

Since starting at BKH a month ago, our daughter is singing and talking nonstop. She surprises us every day with a new song she learned at school or a new piece of art she made. She is happy to go to school and happy when we pick her up.

What’s great about BKH:

– The program is very accommodating to our work schedule from 8-5.
– Daily update through Brightwheel so we know how our girl is doing (nap, snack, potty, lunch update)
– Photos and videos so we see the fun our girl is having during play time, craft time, and performing arts time. We feel connected to her throughout the day.
– Brightwheel messaging allows parents to be in constant communication with teachers and they are quick to respond.
– Sundari is always available and very responsive via email or a quick phone call.
– Potty training
– Monthly newsletter and snack schedule so parents know what to expect
– Clean and safe facility, everyone adheres to Covid protocol to keep the children safe (temperature check, hand sanitizer, encourage children to wear their mask)

We were very very nervous to start our daughter in school taking her away from the comfort of home and family, Sundari made the transition very smooth and easy for her and us. We look forward to seeing her grow and learn with BKH.

We were referred to Building Kidz by a neighbor. Our 4 year old has been attending preschool at this facility for a little over a month now and our experience has been nothing short of positive so far.

The Center Director, Sundari, is cordial, genuine, and compassionate. It’s apparent that she genuinely cares about the wellbeing of the children. The staff are great as well, as they all seem to be warm, patient, and nurturing.

Building Kidz offers an extensive performing arts-integrated educational program. Research indicates exposing children to performing arts has positive effects on a child’s development and academic performance. Hence, we were thrilled to discover this school specializes in performing arts for ages 2-6. I love that the new facility is secure, safe, clean, and inviting. Tuition is reasonable. I also appreciate how parents are updated throughout the day, with daily activity notes, pictures, and videos, through the brightwheel app.

If you’re looking for a school where your children can develop foundational skills and grow to love learning, be sure to consider Building Kidz. I enthusiastically recommend this school.

It’s only been day two and already we feel so confident about Building Kidz being such a good fit for our two year old. He’s spent all of his life at home with us because of the pandemic and while having support from my family for childcare while we worked from home was convenient, we knew it was time for him to get some more enrichment and socialization with other kids. We heard about BK from our next door neighbors whose kids attend here and felt even better knowing they would be in the same class.

Ms Brisa was wonderful to communicate with right before we enrolled him and we absolutely love the Brightwheel app to get updates throughout the day, photos and videos to soothe my heart!! You can tell all the teachers truly care about the kids and do everything they can to make them feel comfortable. The assistant director even greeted us today and knew what toys our little one likes and helped made drop off feel more comfortable. While he still has his first week of school jitters, I can tell he’s going to learn so much and feel very supported here. Thank you especially to Ms Latrell for making our little guy feel comfortable his first day!

Both of my littles have been at BK since the moment they were old enough and I can’t say enough great things. My older one now graduated to kindergarten and he is thriving, in part because of the experience he had at BK. I truly consider the teachers and staff to be like family. Not to mention that we have met some of our closest friends through BK and truly feel like the luckiest people in the world to have the school.

The school is small, which for some parents can be a negative. We love it because our kids form lasting friendships with their classmates. We also get constant communication throughout the day to let us know that our little guy is thriving and cared for, which is all we could ask.

In pre-pandemic times it was also incredibly convenient for my commute, but even now it is a neighborhood place for us and we are so lucky to have it.

Building Kidz took us in after our beloved former daycare closed their business permanently 7 months ago, and we couldn’t be more grateful to have found a home for our kiddo there. The teachers are truly exceptional and kind. Our kiddo actually counts them as some of her best friends along with the other children there. We hear things like, “Teacher Lora is a good runner and she’s lots of fun to chase. Teacher Becca braided my hair like Elsa after nap time. Teacher Isabel gave me a hug when I fell down outside. Teacher Donna helped me take a nap.” She often comes home and pretends to be a teacher now. At almost 3, she knows the letters in her name, and she can identify several letters of the alphabet. Her art skills are through the roof, and our usually very picky eater has blossomed into an almost hearty eater! We are truly thrilled with her progress, not just academically, but emotionally and socially as well. She will often come home with stories about how Teacher Lora helped her say, “No, I need space,” when she felt overwhelmed or how she and a friend had to sit on a bench and calm down when they couldn’t decide who got to play with a ball. I often worried that our only child wouldn’t get to learn these empathy and sharing skills, but the teachers do a spectacular job of guiding them gently and communicating with us frequently, so we can reinforce the behavior at home. We get monthly lesson plans, so we can preview what they’ll be learning about. We get almost daily photos on Brightwheel, and at the end of every day, we get a short report of the day’s highlights when we pick our kiddo up. The responsiveness and collaborative spirit we feel from the teachers and directors is phenomenal. Best of all is the performance focus at the school. I love hearing my daughter sing new songs (sometimes even in Spanish!), I love her blossoming interest in dance and yoga, and the spring show that they put on was truly one of the most darling things I’ve ever seen. I’m thrilled that our daughter is getting such great care and heaps of love at Building Kidz.

Kindness, love and patience.  Isabel, Becca and Lora are wonderful teachers and care givers.  Our daughter started at Building Kidz on Clement Street when she was 2 years and 3 months old.  She was not potty trained, and I could not image she would ever sit and color like the kids on the tour we took.  Fast forward 5 months and she is now nearly potty trained and her ability to focus on art project (while sitting still!) is amazing.

The structure, consistency, and daily routine is wonderful.  The focus on arts, singing, dancing and general “feel good” kindness is really all we were looking forward in early child education. I feel like she is growing as a good person in addition to fine motor and verbal skills.

The focus on arts, singing and outside dance teachers are exactly what I would do for my daughter if I were to stay at home.  She is getting art class, dance class, reading, story telling, play time and learning value life lessons about sharing, caring and expressing themselves.  Isabell organized a Halloween party on Clement st. A holiday party with a kids show, and the winter pageant, just to name a few.

Every day she brings home new art work – crafts I would probably never organize myself at home. The teachers recap each days success and struggle at pick up.  They are professional in communication, billing and oversight.  The hours are great – ability to start before 8am was a big part of the draw at first.  Highly recommend.

Building Kidz SF has truly blown me away.  Our son started in January 2021, and has absolutely blossomed.  We decided to transfer from our previous outdoor/play based preschool to Building Kidz where there is a bit more academic focus. My kiddo went from not showing any interest in drawing or attempting to write his letters and numbers, to loving it. He comes home everyday excited to share what he has learned, and it is wild to see how much he has grown in just a few short months. Isabel and the teachers genuinely care about my son, teach kindness and empathy, and clearly communicate when there are issues.

I recommend Building Kidz without reservation, and kudos to Isabel, Becca, Donna, and the rest of the teachers for creating such a lovely, caring, and curious learning environment.

I have been bringing my son here for over a year now and I am so impressed. I have used Kindercare for my youngest and they were fine but spent more time doing paperwork than actually interacting with the kids. My older son has been to 2 places he’s 14 now. All were very expensive and specialized in art, languages, music and dance etc. this place is affordable and includes the same activities as the private art school offered. I also can’t say enough good things about the staff. They are incredibly patient and kind. They genuinely care about each of the kids and helping them through developmental challenges and behavioral challenges. Try them out you won’t regret it.

Great little school hidden among the trees, very welcoming and stimulating environment, awesome teachers.

Great experience for our 2-3 year old son, who since we arrived in the US had a hard time with English and was not used to classrooms and schools. He was in a small daycare before, so we were a bit apprehensive towards a big leap into a classroom, but Mrs Darcy, Jacquie, Mariana and Jordan, along with Sylvia provided a great environment and had all the patience in the world to care for him day to day. He opened up little by little, showed more and more confidence, and seemed to enjoy and learn from all the art activities in the school. We could really see the difference, and marvel at the progress he made along the way. Warmly recommended.

Both of my littles have been at BK since the moment they were old enough and I can’t say enough great things. My older one now graduated to kindergarten and he is thriving, in part because of the experience he had at BK. I truly consider the teachers and staff to be like family. Not to mention that we have met some of our closest friends through BK and truly feel like the luckiest people in the world to have the school.

The school is small, which for some parents can be a negative. We love it because our kids form lasting friendships with their classmates. We also get constant communication throughout the day to let us know that our little guy is thriving and cared for, which is all we could ask.

In pre-pandemic times it was also incredibly convenient for my commute, but even now it is a neighborhood place for us and we are so lucky to have it.

We love Building Kidz! Both our kids have been at BK since they were 2. The oldest is now a kindergartener and thriving, thanks to the social and academic foundation provided by BK. The younger one started his second year at BK this fall, following the re-opening after a brief closure due to the pandemic.

There are a million things I love about BK, but the most important to me is that my kids love it. The teachers make my children feel special. Their genuine love for children is so obvious, and I’ve never doubted that they care deeply about each of the students in their care.

Both our kids are on the shy side and the teachers at BK have been amazing at patiently supporting them through the social challenges of group activities, always making them feel comfortable about their own reactions to those activities and never pushing them past their comfort level. Both kids struggled to engage with the performing arts activities (dance, music, theater classes), but their teachers went above and beyond to make sure neither boy felt ashamed or inadequate about it. Eventually both kids came to love the group enrichment activities and learned to communicate more openly about feeling shy at times in other social settings. In the end, the performing arts activities at BK were really impactful because of the way the teachers helped my boys accept their own limitations and encouraged them to ease into participation as their comfort levels increased. I think that in other settings or with other teachers, the outcome may have been completely opposite.

I also really appreciate the drama-free nature of this place. Issues are managed swiftly and professionally. Teachers offer helpful advice and input when you ask for it, but you don’t get a detailed play-by-play each day. Some parents are more involved than others but there is no pressure and there are no favorites.

Building Kidz is the best of the best. I can say that my son has thrived in the environment. He enjoys doing his classwork, and he is very motivated to do so. Math, language and even science are thought and each are taken with great care. This school is simply perfect.

The curriculum is very age appropriate and it challenges my son. He looks forward to doing his homework and the work seems to provide just about the right amount of work and challenge. The teachers are extremely engaged and supportive in all regards. Ultimately, the school provides a very warm and supportive environment.

The teachers and administration at Building Kidz are very caring. Since day one of Building Kidz opening its doors, my son received individualized attention in his classwork and growth. The school focuses not only academic but also character development. Further, it has a wonderful and engaging support from its community and this is seen in fun events and celebrations. To also add, during the challenging times, the school went above and beyond to provide its students and community with its resources while never missing a beat on its warmth and welcome.

Overall, Building Kidz is fantastic – with its dedicated staff, it provides its students with a good foundation for in character building as well as educational fundamentals.

Thank you very much for all that you do, Building Kidz!

Our kid has been attending the infant program at Building Kidz for about 2 months now. As expected the first few days was a bit tough both for us as parents and our kid. But the teachers at Building Kidz were very accommodating and explained to us very patiently that it might take a few weeks for things to get to normal and what they would be doing to help. I like the Brightwheel app being used so that I can keep track of what my kid is doing w.r.t feeding and sleeping. It also makes it really easy for us to communicate with the teachers during the day. The wonderful pictures and videos posted sometimes on the app is a sweet bonus 🙂

Coming to the classroom, I am extremely satisfied with the care provided by the teachers. They are very easy to work with and our kid (and us) have formed a special bond and trust with a few teachers in the classroom. They take very good care and make every effort to feed and put our baby to sleep even during fussy days. Circle time, book reading sessions and outdoor times are somethings that we really like. The conversations at the end of the day with the teachers show the genuine care and warmth for the kids in the classroom.

Overall we are very satisfied with the daycare so far. We are confident that it will continue to stay the same and would highly recommend the daycare.

Building Kidz SF has truly blown me away.  Our son started in January 2021, and has absolutely blossomed.  We decided to transfer from our previous outdoor/play based preschool to Building Kidz where there is a bit more academic focus. My kiddo went from not showing any interest in drawing or attempting to write his letters and numbers, to loving it. He comes home everyday excited to share what he has learned, and it is wild to see how much he has grown in just a few short months. Isabel and the teachers genuinely care about my son, teach kindness and empathy, and clearly communicate when there are issues.

I recommend Building Kidz without reservation, and kudos to Isabel, Becca, Donna, and the rest of the teachers for creating such a lovely, caring, and curious learning environment.

So my son started kindergarten this year. And I must say he is BEYOND prepared. The Building Kidz’ program is accelerated, independent, and disciplined while still fostering creativity, social skills and empathy. Building kidz’ taught my son how to write all his letters, numbers, and read basic words. This is a wonderful program and WILL prepare your child for kindergarten.

They understand that each child develops at their own time and their own pace and adapt their teaching methods to each individual child.

Our daughter (just under 3yrs old) has been going here over a year now and she seems to love it. Her dad and I also love this school and it’s staff. They’ve been in the trenches with us through all the tough stages… separation anxiety, potty training, and even a broken leg. Being able to see our daughter throughout the day via their secure webcam system is definitely an added bonus. Dad and I feel blessed to have found this school with its wonderful teachers and programs.

So we left our last childcare because I witnessed an incident (another child) but leaving was coming because our son was crying at drop off in the old place and we could not figure out why…but he LOVES this place, after our tour he could not stop talking about it, I was happy after our trial day and on his start day he reassured me in the car, “mom, there is a school bus and a firetruck and a train, so many things mom, it’s going to be fine!” He is 2.5yrs and reassuring mom. He went from bawling his eyes out at drop off at old childcare to going happily to gramma’s house (which was a vacation of love and being spoiled) to this and from what I have witnessed with my own eyes he is well cared for and so are the rest of the students, teachers here do their best, and management is responsive to feedback and attentive to individualizing care as much as possible! And cameras!!!! Watching him nap or play or interact is wonderful, communication with caregivers has been awesome so far, only 3 wks in but still…I feel very comfortable here and our son says bye without issue after months of tantrums elsewhere (no tantrums saying goodbye at gramma’s either, all about comfort!)

Our son loves it here and routinely asks to go to day care during the weekends :). The teachers are great, the many activities are fun and educational (he learns so much here) and we appreciate that he has the chance to learn to play with so many kids. We’re very happy to have him enrolled here.

My son is finally thriving and begs me to go to school! He had a traumatic experience at another local daycare and I didn’t think he would ever want to try to go school (daycare) again. But from day one, at Building Kidz, my son felt comfortable and instantly loved all the teachers. He asks me to go to school, it’s so cute, and I’m so happy he’s finally happy. On top of that, he’s learning so much at Building Kidz and they are performance arts based, which is great for building self esteem. Thanks for helping my son thrive!

True Demand, Parents Consider Preschool Before Birth

As a parent of a newborn, thinking about childcare can feel overwhelming. Deciding how, when, and where your child will enter early childhood education isn’t something parents should delay, however.

How early do parents of young children start looking for their childcare services?
