About Building Kidz of Citrus Heights

Preschool and Drop-in for children from 2 to 6 years old.

We are part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, providing preschool and drop-in services for our community in Citrus Heights.. We are located at 8073 Greenback Ln, Citrus Heights, CA 95610 across from the Sunrise Mall.

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. It is this philosophy and our preschool programs that has made us one of the top preschools and childcare services in America.

Our mission is to deliver a world class preschool experience resulting in children that love learning, connect with the performing arts, and demonstrate accelerated development of their character, confidence, and commitment.

Our curriculum is a comprehensive arts-integrated learning program in which children develop skills and knowledge of numeracy, literacy, music, arts, socialization, self-regulation and control, self-efficacy, morality, fine and gross motor skills, and emotional expression.
Additionally, our children perform two shows annually: a Broadway style production in June and a winter recital in December.

Our Franchisor, Building Kidz Worldwide, dedicates 25% of its profits to helping underprivileged children globally! You are not only making a great decision by choosing to partner with us in the development of your child, you are also helping children you may never meet at no additional cost to you.
