My name is Anabel Avalos and I am the Director of the Building Kidz of Hayward.

I began working for  Building Kidz in 2015 as an Infant & Toddler teacher. I left to gain more experience and to find the right age group to work with. I came back to Building Kidz in 2019 as the Transitional Kindergarten teacher.

Parent Testimonials

We wanted our child in a pre-school/day care that we trust and can be confident that our child is safe, happy, learning, and well cared for. Building Kidz of West Hayward is all that and more. Sundari, the program director, and all the teachers are great. Everyone is very caring, patient, and responsive.

Since starting at BKH a month ago, our daughter is singing and talking nonstop. She surprises us every day with a new song she learned at school or a new piece of art she made. She is happy to go to school and happy when we pick her up.

What's great about BKH:

- The program is very accommodating to our work schedule from 8-5.
- Daily update through Brightwheel so we know how our girl is doing (nap, snack, potty, lunch update)
- Photos and videos so we see the fun our girl is having during play time, craft time, and performing arts time. We feel connected to her throughout the day.
- Brightwheel messaging allows parents to be in constant communication with teachers and they are quick to respond.
- Sundari is always available and very responsive via email or a quick phone call.
- Potty training
- Monthly newsletter and snack schedule so parents know what to expect
- Clean and safe facility, everyone adheres to Covid protocol to keep the children safe (temperature check, hand sanitizer, encourage children to wear their mask)

We were very very nervous to start our daughter in school taking her away from the comfort of home and family, Sundari made the transition very smooth and easy for her and us. We look forward to seeing her grow and learn with BKH.

We were referred to Building Kidz by a neighbor. Our 4 year old has been attending preschool at this facility for a little over a month now and our experience has been nothing short of positive so far.

The Center Director, Sundari, is cordial, genuine, and compassionate. It's apparent that she genuinely cares about the wellbeing of the children. The staff are great as well, as they all seem to be warm, patient, and nurturing.

Building Kidz offers an extensive performing arts-integrated educational program. Research indicates exposing children to performing arts has positive effects on a child's development and academic performance. Hence, we were thrilled to discover this school specializes in performing arts for ages 2-6. I love that the new facility is secure, safe, clean, and inviting. Tuition is reasonable. I also appreciate how parents are updated throughout the day, with daily activity notes, pictures, and videos, through the brightwheel app.

If you're looking for a school where your children can develop foundational skills and grow to love learning, be sure to consider Building Kidz. I enthusiastically recommend this school.

It's only been day two and already we feel so confident about Building Kidz 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.

Ms Brisa was wonderful to communicate with right before we enrolled him and we absolutely love the Brightwheel app to get updates throughout the day, photos and videos to soothe my heart!! You can tell all the teachers truly care about the kids and do everything they can to make them feel comfortable. The assistant director even greeted us today and knew what toys our little one likes and helped made drop off feel more comfortable. While he still has his first week of school jitters, I can tell he's going to learn so much and feel very supported here. Thank you especially to Ms Latrell for making our little guy feel comfortable his first day!

About Building Kidz of Hayward

We are part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, providing preschool and childcare services for our community in Hayward, California. We are located at 24748 Hesperian Blvd, right off of 92 and 880 and just 3 blocks from Chabot College.

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 environment where children are challenged intellectually and are engaged in an interest of lifelong learning through an intelligent integration of academics and performing arts. It is this philosophy and our preschool programs that has 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.

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, you are also helping children you may never meet at no additional cost to you.
