Welcome to Building Kidz of Santa Clara! My name is Mia and I have been working within the software industry for the past 10 years after I received a M.B.A degree from Troy University. I found my passion for early childhood education after having my three kids. I truly respect early child education since I believe a child’s early years are important for his or her future development.

Our School Programs

The infant program at Building Kidz School

Infant Program

In this class we brighten up the world by helping our youngest children discover their senses, explore their surroundings, nurture their development and celebrate their milestones. From one-on-one interactions that help build nurturing relationships in everyday moments to age-appropriate books to support speech and language development, our classrooms provide the ideal setting for the youngest children. We are also encouraging children to work on finger painting, music, and pretend play to spark creativity while also exposing them to structures to help with perceptual motor development. When children leave this classroom they will have a Brighter Beginning to the world around them.

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

It's only been day two and already we feel so confident about Building Kidz Santa Clara being such a good fit for our two year old. He's spent all of his life at home with us because of the pandemic and while having support from my family for childcare while we worked from home was convenient, we knew it was time for him to get some more enrichment and socialization with other kids. We heard about BK from our next door neighbors whose kids attend here and felt even better knowing they would be in the same class.

I love this child care. They take care of my two children, I was very afraid to give my kids to childcare, but they are happy to visit this place!! Every day they send me information about how much the children slept, how much they ate and photos taken during the day. This is very nice. Thank you Building Kidz of Santa Clara!!

About Building Kidz of Santa Clara

We are part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, providing high-quality preschool and childcare services for our community in Santa Clara, California.

It is our philosophy in our preschool programs to develop the “whole child“. We focus on 6 key areas of development: emotional, social, cognitive, physical, communication, and academic. We create an age-appropriate environment where children are challenged intellectually and are engaged in an interest of lifelong learning through intelligent integration of academics and performing arts.  It is this philosophy and the preschool programs that have made us one of the top preschools and childcare services in America.

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.

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. Spanish and Mandarin are also part of our curriculum. 

Additionally, our children perform two shows annually: a Broadway-style production in June and a winter recital in December.

Our Franchisor, Building Kidz Worldwide, dedicates 25% of its profits to helping underprivileged children globally! You are not only making a great decision by choosing to partner with us in the development of your child, but you are also helping children you may never meet at no additional cost to you.
