Hello! My name is Ms. Sammy and I am the Director here at Building Kidz of Folsom.

Teaching early childhood education is my life’s passion. I started working with children as a nanny at the age of 13, and have worked through the industry ever since. I have been the lead teacher in classrooms of all age groups ranging from 1-5.

Parent Testimonials

My son is finally thriving and begs me to go to school! He had a traumatic experience at another local daycare and I didn’t think he would ever want to try to go school (daycare) again. But from day one, at Building Kidz, my son felt comfortable and instantly loved all the teachers. He asks me to go to school, it’s so cute, and I’m so happy he’s finally happy. On top of that, he’s learning so much at Building Kidz and they are performance arts based, which is great for building self esteem. Thanks for helping my son thrive!

My granddaughter absolutely loves coming to school here. She talks about how much she loves her friends and her teachers. We felt welcome and comfortable from the very first visit. My granddaughter is only 3, so we look forward to a couple more years for her to thrive at Building Kidz!

After visiting many, many daycares in the area... I am so happy that I found Building Kidz!!! Ms. Amber gave me a wonderful tour without any notice and took the time to answer all of my questions! Her personality made me feel 100% comfortable leaving my little guy!!! The entire staff is amazing and my 3.5 year old is learning so much!!! All of the teachers take the time to know my son and our entire family!!! All the kiddos are great as well!

My daughter has been going here for about 3 months now. All of the staff at Building Kidz are great. They ensure every drop off goes smoothly. My daughter has been home since Covid started and was shy and timid and frankly behind on her words. She has flourished since being there and they take the time to make sure she is ok every time I drop off and pick up. I cannot say enough good things about Building Kidz and their staff. Thank you Amber for loving my girl.

About Building Kidz of Folsom

A world class preschool for children from 2 to 6 years old.

We are part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, providing preschool services for our community in Folsom. We are located at 231 Blue Ravine Rd., Folsom, CA 95630.

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.
