Owner and Franchisee
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. It is my passion to have children’s childhood full of warmth, love, magic, and joy, to provide various programs for them to explore and discover their interests on their own, to have an environment nurture their creativity and confidence. I have also been qualified as a childcare center site supervisor by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

Hello, my name is Jin, and I’m delighted to help nurture your Building Kidz child. My journey into early childhood education began when my own children attended a Montessori school in Washington State. Through their experience, I developed a strong passion for early childhood education and devoted myself to imparting children a fruitful foundation through a multifaceted learning experience. With a Montessori certification from Washington and a California Site Supervisor permit, I’ve volunteered and worked in various school settings across both states since 2014. I’m excited to contribute my diverse experience to cultivate an enriching learning environment for all the young children at Building Kidz.
