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

Such a wonderful lovely school. I have a baby that started at 3 months. Wonderful staff and always on top of letting me know what is going on with her activities through the brightwheel app they have. I love that I can reach out her teacher through the app. With COVID restrictions they have been very very prepared. I love my daughter and want her to be safe. There was some scares with COVID a outbreak. There are restrictions for a reason but other then that the staff is great and such a great location. No traffic to pick up baby girl from daycare.

About Building Kidz of Pacifica (Linda Mar)

We are excited to bring the high standard of early childhood education that you have come to expect from Building Kidz of Pacifica to the Linda Mar area with our newest campus!

Both schools are part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, whose 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 Franchisor, Building Kidz Worldwide, dedicates 25% of profits to helping underprivileged children right here at home and around the world.

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.

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.

This philosophy is why we are known in the local Pacifica area as one of the top preschools and infant childcare centers. We are committed to bringing the same unparalleled experience to the parents and children of the Linda Mar community.
