Mrs. Adela Bjelevac

Director

Mrs. Adela specializes in early childhood education and has been working with children between the ages of 2 months to 13 years since 2011 in Bay Area schools such as Stratford School, Kiddie Academy, and Starbright School.

She believes in the importance of early childhood education and it’s critical role in the growth of a child’s mind and spirit. She is focused on each child’s individual needs. Her goal is to foster new skills and develop new interests in your child through a loving, nurturing, and safe environment. She firmly believes quality childcare should be affordable and available to children from all different backgrounds. Her ultimate goal is to form a connection with each family at Building Kidz and to help families understand their own child’s individual needs. She wants children and families to feel loved, cared for, and to have a sense of belonging. She continues to learn about educating young children and enjoys studying new methods of child guidance which enhance development.
