Our School Programs

The infant program at Building Kidz School

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.

The toddler program at Building Kidz School

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.

Parent Testimonials

My 7 month old started with Building Kidz Columbia a few months ago after being home with me exclusively. It was the easiest transition thanks to the owner Hasina, director Corrine and his amazing teachers. I have a hard time leaving my baby with people but their spirits are so kind and inviting and he literally loves it as much as his dad and me. I strongly recommend them for your childcare needs.

We recently move to Columbia, and got my kids enrolled into Building Kidz. The tremendous transformation experienced in my two kids brings me serious sense of fulfillment.

I Highly, highly recommend this school!!

This school is amazing and I was sad once my daughter started public school because we grew so attached to Building Kidz. This is a great family oriented childcare facility with whole hearted instructors and owners.

About Building Kidz of Columbia


At Building Kids of Columbia, our core philosophy revolves around nurturing the “whole child,” recognizing that each aspect of development is essential. We emphasize six key areas: emotional, social, cognitive, physical, communication, and academic growth. By creating a stimulating environment, we aim to challenge children intellectually and instill a passion for lifelong learning, achieved through the seamless integration of academics and performing arts. This approach has placed us among the top preschools and childcare services in America.

Our mission is to provide a world-class preschool experience that cultivates a genuine love for learning and a profound connection with the performing arts. Our ultimate goal is to foster accelerated development in characterconfidence, and commitment among the children we nurture.

Our curriculum is thoughtfully designed as a comprehensive arts-integrated learning program, enabling children to develop vital skills and knowledge across multiple domains, including numeracy, literacy, music, arts, socialization, self-regulation, self-efficacy, morality, and fine and gross motor skills. Moreover, we encourage emotional expression, acknowledging the importance of emotional well-being in a child’s growth.

In addition to our focus on education and the arts, we take great pride in our children’s achievements. They have the opportunity to showcase their talents and hard work through two impressive performances each year: a Broadway-style production in June and a winter recital in December.

At Building Kids Worldwide, we believe in giving back to society. We dedicate 25% of our profits to support underprivileged children globally, meaning that when you choose to partner with us for your child’s development, you are also making a positive impact on the lives of less fortunate children, without any additional cost to you.
