Welcome to Building Kidz of Vista at Taylor Street

We are eager to serve the North County community with our nurturing, child-centric preschool, childcare, and pre-k facility. As a Building Kidz preschool, our mission is to deliver a world class experience by incorporating performing arts (music, dance, and theater) into an age-appropriate curriculum focused on the “whole child”. Our infant, toddler, preschool, and pre-kindergarten programs all focus on developing your child’s confidence, commitment, and character.

We are a proud member of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, which are locally owned and operated preschools, child care, and daycare centers throughout the U.S. Our programs provide unequaled developmental experiences for young children.

Our age-appropriate curriculum is a world class arts-integrated learning program in which children develop skills and knowledge of math, literacy, music, arts, socialization, self-regulation and control, morality, fine and gross motor skills, and emotional expression – all while having fun!

Program Highlights

  • Infants, Toddler, Preschool, and Daycare programs
  • Full-time and Part-time options
  • Proven and modern academic curriculum
  • Second-language focused lessons every day for children over 3
  • A clean, safe, and nurturing childcare environment (masks, sanitation, and gloves)
  • Twice daily healthy snacks
  • Qualified and caring staff with CPR-certifications
  • A large outdoor playground in a beautiful natural setting
  • Two shows annually: Broadway-style production in Summer and Winter Recital in December/January

My name is Tex and I am originally from New Zealand. I have lived in SoCal since 2007 and have been married since 1996. I live in Fallbrook with our eight children. My wife and I have a passion for nurturing children and take great joy in watching them grow and develop their personalities. We’re involved in the county’s foster and adoption system. Our love for children and desire to make a difference drives us to be the best and we are excited to be a part of the Building Kidz Family!

My name is Kirsten Jessberger and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be the Director of Building Kidz of Vista at Taylor Street!

I was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington and moved to Vista in October of 2019. In the summer of 2020, I earned my associates degree focusing on child development and education. I am currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree in philosophy, with a minor in family and human development. In my spare time I enjoy going on walks, relaxing and going to Disneyland with my husband.

I started working in the field of Early Childhood Education during high school and I never looked back! I have worked in classrooms since 2015 with children ages 2 months to 10 years in age. I had the honor of being the lead school age teacher for three years in the daycare center that I went to as a child. I have been working at this location since January of 2021 with the infants.

I am excited and eager to take on this new role and get to know everyone!

We are always looking for great teachers!

What Parents Are Saying about the Building Kidz Schools…

I really love this school. It’s the right mix of play and school. My daughter started attending when she was 4 and I love how much she has learned!! She learned how to socialize with kids her own age and although a bit timid at times, I have watched her grow here! The teachers are awesome for her age group and they take the extra time to get to know each kid. She is now learning to read and she loves it. Oh and not to mention some pretty advanced math. She will do great this year as she enters kindergarten with the fantastic foundation she got here! I’m so grateful!!

This is our second time around with the Building Kidz, and happy to be back! My 2 year old started not too long ago and loves it even more than my oldest did, which makes morning drop-off very enjoyable! My oldest looks forward to accompanying me with afternoon pick-up and loves seeing all the familiar faces of the teachers and staff. The recent changes with office management have been a delight and I’m looking forward to the next few years with the Building Kidz.

We’ve had a really good experience there with our daughter.  We’ve really enjoyed the music and performance programs, the teachers are nice and care about the students, and they’ve been willing to work with us on a number of issues particular to our daughter.  They have really done a lot for us. The facilities are great, the playground area is really nice and completely enclosed.
