Hi! My name is Karen Nguenti and I have been working in Early Childhood Education since 1989. I have worked in every aspect of this business and still have the same passion for children that I have always had. I believe children are incredible, and I am privileged to be a part of a child’s life even if it is just for a moment.

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

Building Kidz is absolutely fantastic! Both my kids started here at 4-5 months and loved all the teachers. They've both learned so much. My oldest just started kindergarten at a public school and I have to say that BK prepared her so well for it. She is doing amazingly well because of all she learned at BK! My youngest is still in the toddler room and loves the music classes. The teachers are all so loving, understanding and willing to listen to any of your concerns. The director, Karen and the owner, Sangita are just wonderful at running this daycare and preschool. Communication is always great and the BK app is so helpful to get a peek at how your kids are doing during the day. Thank you, BK for taking such good care of my kids!

This place is fantastic. Teachers and staff are loving and caring and very easy to work with. My daughter was nervous when we started, and everyone helped ensure she was comfortable and helped build up her confidence. I love that they introduce music, dance and have performances. I ended up keeping my daughter there for kindergarten, which was one of the best things I could have done. Small classes (compared to the 27 kids in public) taught her everything she needed to prepare for 1st grade. I recommend them to all of my friends.

I cannot say enough good things about Building Kidz and the wonderful teachers that provided my son with a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment over the last 5 years.

From the moment my child began as an infant, to graduating TK, I cannot express enough gratitude for the love and care they afforded my child and ensured he developed the necessary skills to be successful as he continues the next steps in his education journey.

No preschool or daycare is going to be perfect. Given all the obstacles everyone has experienced over the last couple years, Sangita and the school did an incredible job to pivot and ensure the kids came first without sacrificing valuable learning.

Thank you to Sangita, Myrna, Rosa, Mirna, Rola and all the other amazing teachers at Building Kidz Concord, we will always be grateful to you!

My son has been at Building Kidz for about a year and a half, since he was 6 months old, and we have truly loved our time there! The teachers are so caring and attentive - they post regularly through an app to let us know how he is doing throughout the day/post pictures/etc. and are always available to answer questions. Sangitah and Karen have also always been beyond helpful and lovely. We have also truly appreciated their provided lunches, safety protocols, and frequent updates on the goings on at the school.
Honestly cannot recommend Building Kidz of Concord enough!

About Building Kidz of Concord

Are you wondering where the best preschool or childcare in Concord is? With a campus that boasts three large play yards, plus a separate yard just for toddlers, the answer is clearly Building Kidz of Concord.

How are preschools reacting to the California wildfires? At Building Kidz of Concord, not only have we installed “Molekule” air purifiers in each of our classrooms, we have also added “Purple Air” air quality monitors, allowing us to monitor airborne particulate matter, both indoors and out.

Our enhanced security measures, including video cameras throughout our classrooms and playgrounds, touch pad entry, and advanced parent communication provided by Brightwheel, allow you to rest assured that your child is safe all day. If you are looking for a locally owned, community child care center that takes safety, security, and cleanliness seriously, look no further.

Our curriculum is a comprehensive arts-integrated learning program in which children develop skills and knowledge of math, literacy, music, arts, socialization, self-regulation and control, morality, fine and gross motor skills, and emotional expression – all while having fun!

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

Our performing arts integration includes two shows annually; Building Kidz of Concord students participate in a Broadway-style production in June and a winter recital in December.

Our mission is to deliver a world-class infant care, childcare, and preschool 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.

Building Kidz of Concord is part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, providing kindergarten, preschool and childcare services to local area families. We are located at 5100 Clayton Road in the Vineyard Shopping Center and conveniently close to Ygnacio Valley Road.

Our philosophy, our arts-integrated curriculum for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarten children, and our commitment to our community and its families have made Building Kidz of Concord one of the top preschools and kindergartens in Concord.
