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

Our daughter has been going to Building Kidz of Palo Alto for close to a year now. She is in the 4-5 year olds class and goes half days. She loves her school - the teachers, the friends, the routine, all of it! She gets a lot of positive reinforcement from the school, especially from Ms Priya.

She has made some good friends at school! One of them has become an especially close friend. They get picked up at the same time and have a whole pickup-time routine of playing for a few mins and hugs afterwards. They even do regular playdates at home!

Overall, we are very happy with BKPA and would recommend the school.

We started sending our son to Building Kidz of Palo Alto (BKPA) since July 2021 and we absolutely love the experience. He is extremely happy to go to school everyday and this has been a big positive change from his prior pre-schools. The teachers and curriculum is one of the finest with focus on all round development of the kid.

As a parent I am incredibly happy and humbled to see my son's progress in the last 6 months. I have seen our son grow and evolve to be a kind and confident kid. Our trust and confidence in BKPA is so high that we have decided to send our daughter to the same school. Kudos to the entire management team and teachers for the personal touch of care.
I highly recommend BKPA to prospective families.

Our son has been going to Building Kidz, Palo Alto for last 6 months and absolutely loves it there! We were nervous parents, sending our son to a day care for the first time, that too in these covid times, but Ms Vibhuti & Ms Priya went out of their way to make sure he settles in well and we were kept well posted of his day-to-day progress (including his gradual improvement in nap schedule). His class teachers Ms Trini and Ms Yanely have been wonderful in engaging him in activities throughout the day, and he adores them and has made lots of friends in his class. He wants to go there on weekends too now :) BKPA has been such a blessing to us, and I'm so thankful for everything they do over and above what is required to run a day care. Thank you so much!

Why Performing Arts in Preschool?

Research shows that children exposed to the performing arts during their daycare or preschool experience develop neurological connections that support enhanced analytical thinking capabilities as adults.  We have intelligently integrated dance, music, and theater into our fun and engaging age-appropriate curriculum that is tailored for infants, toddlers, and pre-k kids alike!

  • For our infants, we expose them to music, reading, and art activities throughout the day in a nurturing environment.
  • For our toddlers, we use dance to accelerate gross motor skill development while having fun.
  • For preschoolers, we have performing arts stitched throughout our entire academic curriculum, and we also deliver weekly classes in music, dance, and theater, as well as annual Broadway-style productions and recitals.

Introducing Learning Through Life Experiences

For the first time in the Bay Area, we have introduced our proprietary Learning Through Life Experiences (LTLE) program. Toddlers and preschoolers are introduced to concepts such as making healthy dietary choices, the value of public services, staying active, computer programming, and space exploration through a custom indoor interactive play area.
