Jeanne Becker Whitesides

I am excited to have joined the Building Kidz Worldwide franchise to open and operate Louisville’s first Building Kidz School, whose curriculum employs activities and lessons derived from the performing arts to enhance traditional learning.

I hold a BA in Communications from Indiana University and an MFA in Acting from the University of Louisville. I served for a few years as the performing arts director of one of Louisville’s Catholic Elementary Schools, developing a performing arts curriculum for children in grades 1 through 8.Then, a few years after my daughter was born, I took a position at a local software company, and after a couple of years, moved into management and team development.

Parent Testimonials

Our family LOVES Building Kidz School. We are so happy to find a center that's meets all of our expectations! We love their low teacher:student ratio and structured day with fun activities. My child has already learned so many new skills at the center. The school also uses The Brightwheel app which lets me follow my child's day. The teachers and staff have been nothing but amazing to us and very flexible. I would recommend this center to all families!

About Building Kidz of Louisville

Our goal is to be one of the best preschools in Louisville, KY, providing high-quality childcare and innovative, hands-on learning experiences for our clients’ children. Our center cares for up to 65 children and we focus on developing close-knit relationships between the children and nurturing teachers.

Our teaching staff will facilitate learning opportunities and support children through scaffolding, a method that enables students to solve a problem, carry out a task, or achieve a goal through a gradual reduction of outside assistance. Our teachers will understand the concept of the Emergent Curriculum and be open and able to introduce children to the performing arts as part of that curriculum.

Our curriculum makes use of performing arts activities, exercises, and training methods as part of developing “the whole child:” intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally.
