The toddler program at Building Kidz School

Toddler Program

Our classroom provides an ideal environment to foster individual development and self-help skills. We use a scaffolded approach to learning through systematically building on students’ experiences and knowledge as they are acquiring new skills in order to enhance learning and aid in the mastery of tasks. Their curious minds are exposed to an enriched curriculum focusing on language development by using pictures, books and basic academics in their environment. Following simple instructions is implemented through circle time, story time, art, and curriculum projects. Besides the social, emotional development, we also focus on developing fine motor skills through fun and sensory activities. Our Little Explorers are ready to put to practice their newfound independence by exploring their surroundings as they come with a Brighter understanding of their world around them.

Parent Testimonials

We originally found this school on Yelp but it's been such a treasure! Our daughter has been attending for the past 1.5 years... she started when she was 3 years old in preschool, and now she's in pre-k. She immediately warmed to the school on her "trial" 1/2 day and she loved her first week onwards. The principal Ms. Ashley is very organized and oversees a very strong school with caring and experienced staff, and programs. We love that they bring in extra curricular programs and teachers (ex. Science, music, dance teachers) and have been very impressed with their communication with parents. All the teachers have been wonderful and we will be very sad to graduate in a few months. The families and community at this school are incredibly supportive and nurturing. Issues are addressed swiftly and most importantly our daughter is learning a lot, thriving, and loves going to school!

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.
