Welcome to Building Kidz of Pacifica Preschool and Infant Chilcare

Located at 830 Rosita Rd, this Pacifica preschool is conveniently close to I-101.

It is part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, whose 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 infant childcare centers in Pacifica.

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

My name is Halie Wheatly and I am the Director of Building Kidz in Pacifica. I began working with the company in 2015 in the two’s program and moved to teaching Transitional Kindergarten in 2017. I am excited and motivated to work with the staff and children in my role as Director.

I have been working in the Early Childhood field since 2003 when I participated in a Laboratory Preschool. I became passionate about Early Childhood Education and the numerous benefits that it has towards a lifetime love of learning.

In 2008 I received my Associates degrees in Math & Science as well as in Arts & Humanities. In 2011, I graduated from San Francisco State University and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Child and Adolescent Development with a concentration on Research and Public Policy. I have a passion for learning new concepts and keeping up on policy changes as they relate to Early Childhood.

Over the course of my teaching career, I have explored different age groups including preschool, elementary, and middle school. Preschool holds a special place in my heart, and I am always humbled and proud to watch your children grow and learn.

We are always looking for great teachers!

What Parents Are Saying about Building Kidz of Pacifica Preschool and Infant Childcare

We have been enrolled in BK for 2.5 years.  My son is now 4 and my daughter is in the infant care room.  I don’t even know where to begin—BK is so wonderful!  Every teacher really is so caring, creative and skilled with the kids and I feel like I’ve learned so much from them.
My boy has blossomed tremendously—both socially and in terms of his language skills.  He just turned 4 and can write, knows letters/numbers, as well as days of the week and months of the year.  They have a terrific performing arts program and do great shows twice a year, which helps the kids on so many levels (most importantly, confidence).  Plus, they have science and spanish.  I would highly recommend BK to anyone, and  I think their growing waitlist reflects their popularity.  I feel grateful that I got both of my kids in there when I did!

Both my four year old and two year old are attending Building Kidz and love it! I have watched both my kids grow in their confidence and knowledge. My four year old loves the dance and music classes and his writing has improved so much in a short amount of time.The two year old started just a few months ago, his language skills are off the charts and he talks about the art projects he gets to do.
I feel like my children are getting not only a good educational experience but the preforming arts experience that will help with building confidence in the years to come.
As a parent, the teachers are amazing and I love hearing from them about the little things the boys have done that day. They are caring and always make a point to ask if their is anything else they can do.

My son and daughter attend Building Kidz in Pacifica.  This school is wonderful.  They focus both on academics and the arts.  My children are thriving as they learn both abc’s and how to dance!  The teachers are wonderful and caring.  I highly recommend this pre-school.
