Welcome to Building Kidz of San Mateo Preschool and Kindergarten

We are part of the Building Kidz Worldwide family of campuses, providing San Mateo preschool and childcare services.Located at 39 E 39th Ave close to Pacific Blvd and conveniently close to I-101.

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 San Mateo.

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

Building Kidz of San Mateo
Preschool and Kindergarten
Hello, my name is Jennifer Massis and I am excited and proud to be part of the Building Kidz team. I have been in the child development field for over 15 years and have been with Building Kidz for over 13 years. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from San Francisco State University. I continued my education in child development to qualify as a school director.

As Executive Director, it is important to ensure and address all needs and make learning fun and exciting. I am committed to providing the highest quality preschool experience for the children in this community. Building Kidz believes in providing a warm and loving atmosphere. We know that children have different learning styles that a teacher needs to incorporate into the classroom. We ensure that they get hands on experiences and are engaged and stimulated. We make sure that their environment is stable, safe and nurturing.

My husband and I have two beautiful kids who both attend Building Kidz. On my free time, I enjoy hanging out with family, traveling and cooking.

We have an open door policy and encourage parents to please visit the office or email me with any ideas or comments they feel would best benefit the children.

I look forward to working with all of the families here at Building Kids.

Thank you,
Jennifer Massis

What Parents Are Saying about Building Kidz of San Mateo Preschool and Kindergarten

I have been sending my kids here for close to 2 years now. It gives me comfort knowing teachers care for my kids as if they are their own children. Not only that but BK has truly helped shape my kids and set a foundation for their future. They have developed socially as well as personally from their first year at BK and as a parent it is a great feeling to notice this progress daily.

They are engaged, caring and come up with a million different activities for the kids. This is not a “play all day” daycare/preschool.  They are preparing our kids for Kindergarten. My son is still 6 months away from Kinder and already reads sight words, adds and subtracts and can write the entire alphabet.  I would love to say it’s because I am such a great parent but it is ALL because of Building Kids.
Debi L

Let me start off by saying that I couldn’t ask for a better place for my child to go.  I give them high marks for many different areas.  One is academics they have a way of teaching that far exceeds any other school when my child left she was prepared for 1st grade and she is currently in Kindergarten.
