Our Management

Ashanti Brooks – Owner & Franchisee

I’m excited to be a part of Building Kidz World Wide and opening its first school in Tennessee. I strongly believe in the Building Kidz philosophy of developing confidence, commitment and character in a child.

My passion for working with children began when I was in High School working at an after-school program with children. I enjoyed providing fun and engaging activities for children. It’s my personal goal to provide children with a safe place to learn and develop while providing parents with peace of mind in knowing their child is being well cared for. I’m a parent myself and that’s what I want for my child.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Family Consumer Science from California State University Northridge and a BS in Business Administration from Lipscomb University. I have over 10 years of experience in the insurance industry, but I’m excited to get back to my passion of working with children.

I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughters and in our free time you can find me enjoying the performing arts at TPAC, enjoying live music, watching movies, or bowling.

Chris Brooks – Owner & Franchisee

I am excited to bring the Building Kidz philosophy of developing the “whole child” while building confidence, commitment, and character to Tennessee.

I graduated from Middle Tennessee with a degree in Liberal Studies and a minor in mathematics. I have an extensive history in Retail Management and Human Resources.

Having worked with all ages and manner of people over a 22-year career in retail, I’ve become convinced that to truly impact a community and even the world you must impact the future generations of that community. I am passionate about instilling a love of learning, a love of people, and most importantly a love of self to young people.

I am most happy when spending time with my wife Ashanti and our daughters. In our free time we love attending events at TPAC, cheering on the Titans, bowling, or traveling to any destination where there is water.
I look forward to meeting you!

Takayla Jointer – Director

Hello, my name is TaKayla Jointer and I am the Director at Building Kidz of Nashville. I am originally from Kentucky, relocating to Nashville in 2015. I started my career in Early Childhood Education in 2012 soon after receiving my Bachelors degree in Family and Consumer Sciences with a concentration in Child Studies as well as receiving my Child Care Directors Credential from Western Kentucky University. As my journey continued, I attended  Sullivan University where I received my Masters in the Science of Management in 2016. I have over 7 years of teaching experience including 2+ years of child care management.

My passion for children began at an early age and I knew that working with children and families would bring me so much joy. Over the course of my teaching career, I’ve gained experience in working with infants to school aged children, as well as children with special needs. My goal is to encourage every child to be the best version of themselves, build meaningful relationships with all families and create a safe and healthy learning environment. Along with Building Kidz, I believe in nurturing the “whole child” by providing a fun place to learn and play for all children.

I’m so excited to be a part of the Building Kidz team, and I look forward to meeting you and your family!

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!! A G.

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. Cheri M.

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. Jason M.
