About Building Kidz of San Mateo North

We are part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, providing San Mateo preschool and childcare services. We are located at 120 Lindbergh Street conveniently close to 3rd Avenue and I-101.

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. ABC’s, 123’s, social skills & more through the medium of fine arts.

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.

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 and our preschool programs that have made us one of the top toddler care centers, preschools, and kindergartens in San Mateo.

If you are looking for a place where your child can grow to love learning, please visit us and see how our preschool in San Mateo can give your child the best start possible.
