Sabrina Bhandari

Sabrina Bhandari

Owner and Franchisee

Sabrina’s adventure in early childhood education began long ago when she attended the first Building Kidz, founded by her mother, at age 4. She continued to delve into the magical world of early childhood education by volunteering and working as a teacher’s aide once she was old enough. Since these early days, she’s been enchanted by the joy and developmental process of little ones.

After years of playful exploration at Building Kidz schools, formal education at the University of California, Davis, where she earned her B.S. degree in Psychology, and corporate experience where she achieved top-two performance, Sabrina is thrilled to now be immersed again in the world of preschooler’s and their families.

When she’s not busy with the little ones, you can find Sabrina re-centering in yoga poses or exploring the mysteries of Ayurveda. As a certified yoga instructor and Ayurveda practitioner, she loves teaching young adventurers the secrets of mindfulness, emotional regulation, and mobility.
