    Who we are

    The City of Redwood City recognizes the importance of high-quality child care, and we know its residents do too. If you are one of the many parents still looking for the preeminent preschool or childcare on the Peninsula, Building Kidz has great news for you. We have been serving children and families in the Bay Area since 2003, and we are excited to introduce our 18th Bay Area campus, and our first in Redwood City. Our new campus is located at 907 Roosevelt Ave at the former location for Hawes Elementary School. What makes Building Kidz the leader in Bay Area early childhood education?

    Parents of infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners love our enhanced security measures, including video cameras throughout our classrooms and playgrounds, touch pad entry, and advanced parent communication provided by Brightwheel. If you are looking for a locally owned, community child care center that takes safety, security, and cleanliness seriously, look no further.

    Safety is always our first priority, but it is most certainly not our last. Our curriculum is a comprehensive, interactive, and arts-integrated academic learning program. Your child will be coached as they develop skills in:

    • Math
    • Literacy
    • Self-regulation and control
    • Morality
    • Fine and gross motor skills
    • Emotional expression
    • Socialization

    All while being surrounded by music and the arts and having fun!

    Our curriculum is delivered by top-rate preschool teachers and committed support staff that has been dedicated to the Building Kidz mission for many years. They and we strive to deliver unparalleled care and education to local families and children.

    Performing Arts is in Our DNA

    Our specialization in performing arts goes beyond daily music, dance, and theater lessons and integration of the performing arts within our academic lessons. It includes two shows annually; Building Kidz of Redwood City children participate in a Broadway-style production in June and a winter recital in December.

    Your Child will Learn to Love Learning

    Our mission is to deliver a world-class infant care, childcare, preschool, and private kindergarten experience which results in children developing a deep passion for learning and connecting with the performing arts, while also demonstrating accelerated development of their confidence, commitment, and character.

    Our philosophy is to develop the “whole child”. We focus on 6 key areas of development: emotional, social, cognitive, physical, communication, and academic. We create an environment where children are challenged intellectually and are engaged in an interest of lifelong learning through an intelligent integration of academics and performing arts.

    Our philosophy, curriculum, integration of performing arts, professional staff, and our commitment to our community and its families is what makes us the preschool of choice for families in Redwood City.

    If you are looking for a place where your child can grow to love learning, please visit us and see how our infant, toddler, and preschool program can give your child the best start possible.

    Learning Through Life Experiences allows a child’s learning to become experimental, imaginative and sensory based. Our pedagogical approach is to learn through these real life experiences, such as emergency services, health and nutrition, etc. in an environment committed to reinforce children’s expertise, skills, and values. LTLE provides environments that make learning fun for children through the medium of role-play. By blending reality with entertainment, it provides an authentic and powerful developmental platform where kids can discover, explore and learn about the real world. Our city is a rich learning environment where kids foster their autonomy, creativity, decision-making skills, problem-solving skills and social values. The realism of the role-play helps children learn about different careers, work and know how to manage money. Each activity experience is designed by Educationalists, Play Experts & Child Physiologists to aid and boost different behavioral skills and values in a child.

    Our students

    Infant Program

    In this class we Brighten up the world by helping our youngest children discover their senses, explore their surroundings, nurture their development and celebrate their milestones. From one-on-one interactions that help build nurturing relationships in everyday moments to age-appropriate books to support speech and language development, our classrooms provide the ideal setting for the youngest children. We are also encouraging children to work on finger painting, music, and pretend play to spark creativity while also exposing them to structures to help with perceptual motor development. When children leave this classroom they will have a Brighter Beginning to the world around them.

    Toddler Program

    Our classroom provides an ideal environment to foster individual development and self-help skills. We use a scaffolded approach to learning through systematically building on students’ experiences and knowledge as they are acquiring new skills in order to enhance learning and aid in the mastery of tasks. Their curious minds are exposed to an enriched curriculum focusing on language development by using pictures, books and basic academics in their environment. Following simple instructions is implemented through circle time, story time, art, and curriculum projects. Besides the social, emotional development, we also focus on developing fine motor skills through fun and sensory activities. Our Little Explorers are ready to put to practice their newfound independence by exploring their surroundings as they come with a Brighter understanding of their world around them.

    Preschool Program

    Our classrooms are filled with endless learning opportunities to enhance children’s cognitive and language skills with basic academics through small-group activities that encourage investigation, exploration, and discovery. Our scaffolding approach is a critical component in teaching new tasks with multiple steps where our teachers provide support for students. Our children that are now engaging in short sentence conversions are able to absorb information within our curriculum that is designed to support creative expression, literacy and music by fostering their curious minds. By introducing skills that enable independence through enriching art projects and hands-on activities, we are ensuring they are able to expand concepts that were developed in Little Explorers.

    School Age Program

    Our school age program allows children to work on homework, socialize with peers, and participate in group projects, robotics, sculpting and performing arts.
