Our School Programs

The infant program at Building Kidz School

Infant Program

 Bright Beginnings: 0-12 months (1 year)

 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

Little Explorers: 13-24 months (1.5 yr – 2 Years) 

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.

The preschool program at Building Kidz School

Preschool Program

Little Learners: 25-30 months (2yrs-2.5years)

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.


 Natureville: 31-42 months (2.5-3.5 years)

 Our curious children are exposed to an environment which supports academic goals while immersing themselves into the beauty of the nature that surrounds them. Children are encouraged to explore within their classroom and within nature to incorporate a broader understanding of colors, shapes, letters and numbers. They are also taught during their creative circle to participate with open-ended questions that spark their cognitive, language and social skills. The children analyze information they know and continue to build their skills through experimenting, comparing and contrasting knowledge. Through everything they acquired while being in this group, the children are bursting with confidence and are ready to learn more about the world.


Around the world: 43-54 months (3.5-4.5 years) 

This classroom provides an enriched and challenging hands-on curriculum that continues to ignite children’s inner curiosity enabling realistic learning opportunities through a solid routine that brings out their creativity. Exploring world geography, reading multicultural literature, researching world cultures, playing traditional games are just some of the ways we are building a community of global learners. Throughout the learning process, our students are able to watch their teacher model, or demonstrate, each step in the task or strategy multiple times. Such modeling and repetition allows students to understand both how to perform each step and why each step is important. In this phase our children are practicing by applying their knowledge and developing it further by learning about the world and its food, music and clothing. Children will get to explore and experience various cultures Around the World.


 Exploratorium: : 55-66 months (4.5-5.5 years)

Our super star explorers have already developed their Confidence, Commitment and Character and are now geng ready for the next phase in their preschool endeavors as future Kindergartners. These children will continue to be life-long learners and will foster the love for exploration by further building on their existing knowledge base from geng additional exposure to science, math and technology. We implement many opportunities for growth and will continue to build on their emotional, social, cognitive, physical, communication, and academic skills. When the children leave our program, they will be ready to embark on their next journey and will be prepared to take on new challenges confidently!

Parent Testimonials

Katie, the director, was so nice and friendly when giving us a tour. They even make their meals from scratch! No sugar, no nuts, no packaged items to eat 😱 Something we’ve disliked about other places was their foods. Definitely a place we’ll consider putting our toddler in. The place is beautiful and stocked for the kiddos when they open up, including an indoor playground (never seen another daycare offer that).

We have our 9 month old twins in the infant room and our 4 year old son in the Pre-K room. Ever since enrolling a couple months ago, I’ve been so IMPRESSED with the improvement of all of my kids. The love and care they receive everyday is so heartwarming. The teachers and staff are amazing. I wouldn’t want my children going to any other daycare. We have been in about 3 other daycares prior to this one and by far this exceeds all of the others, by far. Completely amazed. You wouldn’t be disappointed, the director of this daycare is currently on leave, however she is the most caring and thoughtful person I’ve ever met. Our oldest was having separation problems there for a little bit and she made it such an easy transition for him and us. We are thankful everyday for Building Kidz.
