Parent Testimonials

Building Kidz took us in after our beloved former daycare closed their business permanently 7 months ago, and we couldn't be more grateful to have found a home for our kiddo there. The teachers are truly exceptional and kind. Our kiddo actually counts them as some of her best friends along with the other children there. We hear things like, "Teacher Lora is a good runner and she's lots of fun to chase. Teacher Becca braided my hair like Elsa after nap time. Teacher Isabel gave me a hug when I fell down outside. Teacher Donna helped me take a nap." She often comes home and pretends to be a teacher now. At almost 3, she knows the letters in her name, and she can identify several letters of the alphabet. Her art skills are through the roof, and our usually very picky eater has blossomed into an almost hearty eater! We are truly thrilled with her progress, not just academically, but emotionally and socially as well. She will often come home with stories about how Teacher Lora helped her say, "No, I need space," when she felt overwhelmed or how she and a friend had to sit on a bench and calm down when they couldn't decide who got to play with a ball. I often worried that our only child wouldn't get to learn these empathy and sharing skills, but the teachers do a spectacular job of guiding them gently and communicating with us frequently, so we can reinforce the behavior at home. We get monthly lesson plans, so we can preview what they'll be learning about. We get almost daily photos on Brightwheel, and at the end of every day, we get a short report of the day's highlights when we pick our kiddo up. The responsiveness and collaborative spirit we feel from the teachers and directors is phenomenal. Best of all is the performance focus at the school. I love hearing my daughter sing new songs (sometimes even in Spanish!), I love her blossoming interest in dance and yoga, and the spring show that they put on was truly one of the most darling things I've ever seen. I'm thrilled that our daughter is getting such great care and heaps of love at Building Kidz.

Building Kidz SF has truly blown me away.  Our son started in January 2021, and has absolutely blossomed.  We decided to transfer from our previous outdoor/play based preschool to Building Kidz where there is a bit more academic focus. My kiddo went from not showing any interest in drawing or attempting to write his letters and numbers, to loving it. He comes home everyday excited to share what he has learned, and it is wild to see how much he has grown in just a few short months. Isabel and the teachers genuinely care about my son, teach kindness and empathy, and clearly communicate when there are issues.

I recommend Building Kidz without reservation, and kudos to Isabel, Becca, Donna, and the rest of the teachers for creating such a lovely, caring, and curious learning environment.

Kindness, love and patience.  Isabel, Becca and Lora are wonderful teachers and care givers.  Our daughter started at Building Kidz on Clement Street when she was 2 years and 3 months old.  She was not potty trained, and I could not image she would ever sit and color like the kids on the tour we took.  Fast forward 5 months and she is now nearly potty trained and her ability to focus on art project (while sitting still!) is amazing.

The structure, consistency, and daily routine is wonderful.  The focus on arts, singing, dancing and general "feel good" kindness is really all we were looking forward in early child education. I feel like she is growing as a good person in addition to fine motor and verbal skills.

The focus on arts, singing and outside dance teachers are exactly what I would do for my daughter if I were to stay at home.  She is getting art class, dance class, reading, story telling, play time and learning value life lessons about sharing, caring and expressing themselves.  Isabell organized a Halloween party on Clement st. A holiday party with a kids show, and the winter pageant, just to name a few.

Every day she brings home new art work - crafts I would probably never organize myself at home. The teachers recap each days success and struggle at pick up.  They are professional in communication, billing and oversight.  The hours are great - ability to start before 8am was a big part of the draw at first.  Highly recommend.
