Mercy Ishida

Hello, my name is Mercy Ishida, and I am the Executive Director and Franchise Owner of multiple Building Kidz School locations.

My genuine and inborn love for children was evident to me at an early age and it was what led me to Building Kidz
19 years ago. Here is where I began my journey and career as an early childhood educator and where I had the opportunity to hold various positions that now serve as a strong foundation for my commitment to offering a positive early-year education experience for all children.

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.

Parent Testimonials

My very attached-to-mommy daughter loves this place. I was reluctant to start her in day care because I wasn't sure how she was going to do. She would cry anytime I dropped her off at daycare at the gym. So the thought of actually leaving her scared me. After touring the school and meeting with Angelina, my husband and I decided to move forward. Angelina and her staff are very caring and my daughter LOVES THEM! She gets excited to go to school. I definitely recommend building kids rancho cordova. We recently moved and I was considering moving her to a school closer, but can't quite imagine not taking her somewhere else.

When I got a tour of this place my 4 year old son was with me and he loved it! The teachers are really great and very understanding. Ever since my son started coming here he is growing and learning something new everyday. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family. Thank you to the teachers for being so patient with my son and everyone else!

I'm so glad I chose Building Kidz for my sons daycare! The director and teachers are all super nice and understanding. You can tell they genuinely care and love what they do and they are always doing fun and engaging activities with the kids. My son loves going and has made so many friends, I have definitely seen a big improvement in my sons speech and social skills. Highly recommend Building Kidz!

Love this place! So accommodating & friendly. Both my boys ( 5&3) love it, the teachers, & their class mates.

About Building Kidz of Rancho Cordova

We are part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, providing preschool and drop-in services for our community in Rancho Cordova. We are located at 1941 Zinfandel Dr Rancho Cordova, CA 95670.

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.
