Welcome to Building Kidz of San Carlos

We are excited to serve the San Carlos community with local, nurturing childcare and preschool services.

We are part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, providing unequaled developmental experiences for young children.

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 confidence, commitment, and character.

Our philosophy is to develop the “whole child”. We focus on 6 key areas of development: emotional, social, cognitive, communication, physical, 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 age appropriate development curriculum 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, as well as our preschool programs, that allow Building Kidz preschools to quickly become the preeminent provider of early childhood education their respective communities.

Building Kidz of San Carlos

Hello! My name is Elizabeth Santana and I am the Director at Building Kidz of San Carlos.  As a Bay Area Native, I was born and raised here in San Carlos and I am very lucky to be raising my own two children in the area! At a very young age, I started working with children in San Carlos who had special needs ranging in ages from preschool to 5th grade.  This is when I fell in love with my career and knew I was meant to be a teacher. 

I graduated with my Associates of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. My professional career started at Redwood City School District as a paraprofessional full-time. I worked with children who had special needs but, naturally, there was more of an academic focus. These experiences really opened my eyes to the beauty of being able to add love, laughter, and learning to children’s lives every single day. It wasn’t until I had my second child and was a SAHM that I understood how many of the parents felt when they left their child with me every day. Being a SAHM broadened my horizons and understanding of early education, I knew I had to come back into the field and continue doing what I loved for my community! 

I’ve been an assistant Director for Building Kidz of Mountain View since 2019. Now I’m back home in San Carlos working as the Director of Building Kidz of San Carlos and I couldn’t be more excited to be back where it all began. 

I truly believe that quality Early Education is what sets our children up for success for years to come.  As teachers we are here to provide the nurturing foundation they need to be the best little humans they can be. It is such an honor and gift to be able to shape the little minds of the children who I come across year after year and give them unconditional love. Building Kidz of San Carlos is a happy and exciting “home away from home” where your children are welcomed as a part of the Building Kidz family. I’m happy to be part of that home and look forward to having you join me.

My name is Sangita Gupta and I, along with my husband Navin, are the owners of Building Kidz of San Carlos. I look forward to being a part of the Building Kidz family, and an integral part of the San Carlos community.

Long before I started my career in technology, I spent a great deal of time teaching children. Growing up in Kolkata, India, I helped children in our community, and later while pursuing my master’s degree I was a part-time instructor at University of Toledo, Ohio. I am very passionate about quality education and believe that early childhood education has an ever lasting impact on the child – “First four in so many ways are more critical than the college four.”

Both as a mother and as a managing partner of a world class preschool and daycare center, it is important for me to address your needs and make learning fun and exciting for your children. Both Building Kidz of San Carlos and Building Kidz Worldwide are committed to providing the highest quality early education experiences for children in our community. We believe in providing a warm and loving atmosphere; a true home away from home. We recognize both that children have different learning styles, and that they are most fulfilled when engaged; engaged  in classrooms, in the play area or with performing arts. To nurture and support this, we provide an environment that is stable, safe and nurturing.

In my free time, I like to sing and dance and I have done many performances throughout my life. In addition to my technology career, I am a Yoga and Mindfulness teacher at a local library.

I hold a Master of Science degree in both Applied Mathematics and Manufacturing Management from University of Toledo, OH, and a Master of Science degree in Mathematics from The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Kharagpur, India.

Building Kidz of San Carlos

Hi!
My name is Navin Chugh; I am the franchisee and managing partner for Building Kidz of San Carlos. I am currently a guest and an adjunct professor with Lucas School of Business at San Jose State University. I earned my first teaching job as a math tutor for a teenager when I was a Junior at IIT BHU in India. Here I am, full circle, proud to be associated with Building Kidz.

I believe I am always learning, and I strongly believe a solid foundation starts at a very young age. Early Childhood Education is the most valuable investment a parent can make for their child; it is the best and the only gift we can give to our children as it is a gift that keeps on giving.

Before joining hands with Building Kidz School, I spent number of years in the tech industry as a global business leader, working with Public, Private Equity (PE) and Venture Capital backed companies including Oracle, Steria, Vastera, VerticalNet (Tradeum) and First Advantage.

I am truly blessed as a proud father of 2 boys, and I love spending time with them in sports, movies, or school activities. In my free time I enjoy golf, hiking and Netflix.

I am a graduate of the Stanford’s Graduate School of Business Executive Program. I also hold an MBA from San Jose State University, CA; Master of Science in Industrial Engineering from Alfred University, NY, and a Bachelor of Technology in Metallurgical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology – BHU, India.

We are always looking for great teachers!

What Parents Are Saying about local Building Kidz childcare and preschool centers

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!!
