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

My daughter attended Building Kidz of South San Francisco from when she was 7 months old until just a couple of weeks ago, she's now 2.5 years old. Our son (6 months) also started daycare there at 4 months. We had a wonderful experience with Building Kidz of SSF. The teachers are great. All of the teachers, even the ones that were not instructors of their classes, knew their names. It is an incredibly friendly and warm environment. Both my husband and I work full time so to find a daycare/preschool that we could trust our children with was a huge win for us. We would have continued to keep them at this school, however, we just moved to San Carlos. We actually transferred my son to the Building Kidz San Mateo location because of our positive experience. Thank you to the entire staff at SSF for making our daughter and son's time there so wonderful.

Our son went to Building Kidz SSF from age 11-18 months and we were super happy with our experience. From day 1 the teachers all knew our baby by name and seemed to really care. Our boy would go happily into day care every single day, no tears, and in fact would excitedly say their names in happy anticipation when getting ready in the morning.
I loved the app they use for keeping us in the loop every day on what he was up to/ how his meals and naps went - the messaging function was a really quick and easy way to communicate with staff.
COVID protocols have adapted over the months, and have helped us feel safe sending our baby there.
Overall we have been so glad we chose Building Kidz SSF and highly recommend to to anyone looking for care. We are so sad we have moved away and lost this great local resource!

Leaving your baby in the hands of anyone besides your own parents, well... we haven't even done that yet, but we will Mom I promise!! They have provided great care to our 6 month old and to us by always responding to our questions through their app and keeping us informed on when he's sleeping/ eating/ and pooping , which makes us feel that we are actually there! Can't be any happier with them and their service! Strict COVID precautions are also nice to see. Temperature checks, masks for all providers... I feel safe leaving my most prized possession with them!

My daughter loves coming here. They do so much for the kids and Teacher Anna Sheafe is great! She really makes the effort to keep her students clean and tidy, I can tell because whenever I pick up my daughter, she is just the way I left her. Most places let the kids get dirty and run around with their hair all over their faces and covered in snots, they have their jackets on at a 80 degrees weather, not here! Its the little "mommy" things that matter and teacher Anna makes sure your kids are taken care of. Its a good home, away from home for your little preschooler. I am happy my daughter is with teacher Anna.

About Building Kidz of South San Francisco

Located at 600 Grand Ave, we are conveniently close to I-101.

At Building Kidz we understand how Early Childhood Education and a nurturing and loving environment impact the life of young children.

Our preschool programs are designed to provide a world-class experience that will not only prepare children for Elementary school but also help them develop a lifelong love and interest for learning, which will make a major difference in children’s latter successes.

We strive to develop the whole child by integrating Performing Arts into our daily routines to accomplish and meet the education goals set up for each student through a fun, engaging and hands on academic exposure. Children will build the foundation for literacy, the ability to attend learning tasks, to control and express emotions and to develop proper social skills.

We firmly believe that exposure and integration to the arts at an early age enhances children’s confidence, character and academic excellence. Therefore, our Infants and toddlers benefit from weekly music classes while preschool and kindergarten children benefit from music, dance and theater classes.

Our facility is open all-year-round. Therefore, we offer an exceptional summer program that continues to focus on cognitive, emotional and physical development. At the same time providing new experiences and exposure to local community visitors like police department, fire department and librarians, etc. Furthermore, throughout the year, children let their imagination run wild through the exploration of materials and surroundings and the creation of paintings, drawings and sculptures. Science and Spanish are also taught all-year-round.

Additionally, we have multiple celebrations through out the year where parents are invited and welcome to attend to build relationships with fellow families in a school setting.
