Welcome to Building Kidz of Menlo Park Preschool and Kindergarten

We are part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, providing Menlo Park preschool and childcare services. We are located conveniently close to I-101 at 490 Willow Road next to Willow Oaks Park.

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 philosophy is 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.

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.

It is this philosophy and our preschool programs that has made us one of the top preschools and kindergartens in Menlo Park.


If you are looking for a place where your child can grow to love learning, please visit us and see how our preschool in Menlo Park can give your child the best start possible.

From our Site Director:

My name is Sylvia Xuereb and I am the Site Director for Building Kidz of Menlo Park.

I have been with Building Kidz for over 4 years and have enjoyed every minute of it! I have worked with children from 2-12 years of age as a Teacher, Head Teacher, Assistant Director and Site Director.

I have worked with children for nearly 20 years and can’t imagine doing anything else. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development with an emphasis in Psychology, an AA Degree in Business Administration, and an AS Degree in Early Childhood Education. I learn something new from children every day.

My “Golden Rule” philosophy with children is that I treat and care for all children as if they were my own. Fortunately for all of us, this comes naturally to me as I am a very loving person.

I know that children are going to shape and lead our future and recognize the responsibility that teachers have in creating a positive environment so that they can have a bright future when they graduate from Building Kidz!

We are always looking for great teachers!

Are you interested in working at a dynamic preschool that integrates the Performing Arts (dance, music, and theater) into age appropriate developmental guidelines to enhance whole child development and academic excellence within a world class environment?
