My name is Stephanie Harrington and I am the Director at Building Kidz of Redwood City!
I found my passion for dance and teaching children while growing up in Santa Cruz County. In 2014, I started my career in Early Childhood Education working as a dance teacher for Building Kidz of Scotts Valley. Soon, I realized working with young children gave me a sense of fulfillment so I decided to pursue my ECE degree while continuing my work with young children at the Building Kidz locations and growing my career.
Throughout my time at Building Kidz I have gotten the opportunity to grow into this role. In 2014, I began as the Production Manager for ‘Building Starz’, a division of Building Kidz. I have produced and directed shows for centers in and out of state. In 2016, I helped develop and operate ‘Building Careerz’, another division within Building Kidz which gives an opportunity for teachers to get educated in the field. I have hired, trained, and managed teachers. In 2021, I graduated from the University of Arizona with a BA in Early Childhood Education and Management.
I love working with parents to ensure our team provides the best experience for our children. As a Director, it is important that I address all needs for our children while make learning fun and exciting. I am committed to providing the highest quality preschool experience for our children within a stable, safe, and nurturing environment.
Please reach out or stop by anytime – I would love to meet you!
