Our School Programs

The infant program at Building Kidz School

Infant Program

100 ACRE WOOD

6 weeks-18 months

“As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen.”

-Winnie the Pooh

Just as Winnie the Pooh and his friends (Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga and Roo and Christopher Robin) spend their days wandering through the 100 Acre Wood learning about their world and seeking adventure, our infant room helps our youngest children discover their senses, explore their surroundings, nurture their development and celebrate their milestones. From one-on-one interactions that build nurturing relationships in everyday moments, to age-appropriate books that support speech and language development, our classroom provides the ideal setting for our youngest children. Finger painting, music and play spark creativity while exposure to soft structures help with perceptual motor development. When our children leave 100 Acre Wood, they are on a path for more adventures.

Toddler Program

THE FALL ROOM

18-24 months

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the Autumn tree.”

-Emily Bronte

As fall trees let go and lose their leaves in order to continue to grow, our young toddlers are also beginning to explore this process of letting go and finding the sprouts of independence. Our young toddler classroom provides an ideal environment to foster individual development and self-help skills. We use a scaffolded approach to learning through systematically building on children’s 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 focus on building fine motor skills through fun and sensory activities. The young toddlers in our Fall Room, with their newly sprouted independence, are ready to continue to explore their surroundings as they now have a greater understanding of the world around them.

THE MOON & STARS ROOM

 3 year olds

“We are all of us wanderers, chasing moonbeams, our hearts full of wonder, our souls drowsy with dreams.

-Ramblings of the Claury, Drowsy Dreams

As children move into the Moon and Stars Room, their creativity and independence continues to grow and they are fascinated by their surroundings. Our curious children are exposed to an environment which supports academic goals while immersing themselves into the beauty of the nature that surrounds them like the vastness of the moon and stars. Our children are encouraged to explore within their classroom and within nature to incorporate a broader understanding of colors, shapes, letters and numbers. They are also taught during their creative circle to participate with open-ended questions that spark their cognitive, language and social skills. The children analyze information they know and continue to build their skills through experimenting, comparing and contrasting knowledge. Just like explorers, everything our children discover on their journey in the Moon and Stars Room allows them to sparkle and glow like the moon and stars, with confidence, further inspiring their dreams of learning more about the world.

About Building Kidz of Queensbury

Building Kidz of Queensbury is proud to provide our community high-quality infant, toddler and preschool care.

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 Franchisor, Building Kidz Worldwide, dedicates 25% of its 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 at the end of the school year and a winter recital in December.
It is this philosophy and our preschool programs that make us one of the top preschools in Queensbury.
