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

I picked this school because I loved that it was a sweet, country/rural child care and preschool in between my home and work. We were blessed to have had some of the same teachers be with our daughter from 3 months of age until 4 yrs old. They are her second family. I loved receiving photos of what they did. She never once had a bad day experience. She has felt loved and safe the entire time she has been there. I always felt the cost was reasonable to a good deal, which is that perfect sweet spot. This transition to the next phase in life is bitter sweet.

This school is small with a big heart. All three of my kids have gone here and I highly recommend them. The staff truly cares and is passionate about teaching. Tex the owner is great as well as all the teachers.

A warm nurturing environment that offers everything you are looking for! The school has fantastic outdoor space and large clean classrooms. Would recommend this school to anyone!
