Hello!

My name is Linda Friedlin and I am your Director at Building Kidz of San Carlos!

I came into the world of Early Childhood Education (ECE) by way of the business world. After graduating with a degree in Business Administration/Marketing from San Francisco State, I spent my corporate career in sales and management roles for various small and large companies with many of those years in the San Carlos area.

Parent Testimonials

My daughter started at Building Kidz San Carlos a few months ago. The teachers and management have been nothing but wonderful. The teachers are loving and make preschool fun for the kids. The school uses the Brightwheel app to connect with parents and there are always photos and updates on what your child is doing. There is a planned curriculum that the school follows and fun learning activities for the kids. I highly recommend this school.

My son (3.5 yo) has been at Building Kidz since April'21. The administration and teachers are great. My son has spent time in two classes and teachers are loving, caring and fun. Communication with parents is frequent with regular updates, activity photos, etc., through the Brightwheel app that works well. Teachers have always welcomed our curiosities and provided prompt and thorough feedback. My son has definitely become more expressive and social, and has picked up some good habits after joining Building Kidz.

My twin boys reached the grand age of 2.5 years and it was clear that they needed more intellectual and social exposure than we could provide at home. However, given that our elderly parents are living with us, we had to ensure everyones safety in these trying times.

We looked at several daycares before deciding on Building Kidz in San Carlos. Here's what we love about it:
1) It's a brand new facility with only 10-12 students. That meant the kids had plenty of room to play in a safe, socially distanced manner. Even though there are a few more students now, the school has divided them into 2 classrooms. The student-teacher ratio is very much better than what we found in other schools.
2) The school is good about following drop off/pick up protocols, washing the kids hands regularly and maintaining overall cleanliness in the facility.
3) The teachers are AMAZING and I've seen quite a few with my daughter! They are great with the kids and my kids surprise me everyday by how much they've learnt. My 2.5 year old can recognize and make letters with shapes!
4) I love that the curriculum includes music and dance. Both my boys enjoy that and look forward to those lessons.
5) It took less than a week for my home schooled boys to get acclimated and look forward to going to school everyday!

We are very happy with this daycare and 100% recommend this to other families.

My 2 year old daughter has been at Building Kidz San Carlos for 3 months now. We have been really happy with the preschool. Our daughter has turned from being very shy to be a lot more outgoing. She only spoke mandarin prior to coming to building Kidz, now she can understand a lot of English and starts to speak some English too. And she seems to be very happy whenever we drop her off or pick her up. The teachers are wonderful, they are patient and caring. I highly recommend Building Kidz San Carlos!

About Building Kidz of San Carlos

We are excited to serve the San Carlos community with local, nurturing childcare and preschool services.

We are part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, providing unequaled developmental experiences for young children.

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 confidence, commitment, and character.

Our philosophy is to develop the “whole child”. We focus on 6 key areas of development: emotional, social, cognitive, communication, physical, 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 age appropriate development curriculum 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.

It is this philosophy, as well as our preschool programs, that allow Building Kidz preschools to quickly become the preeminent provider of early childhood education their respective communities.
