Vineeta went back to school and earned a degree in Early Childhood education. While she was earning her degree, Vineeta spent hours reading about different philosophies and the benefits of a quality preschool environment in the development of children. She became deeply interested in the benefits of music and dance on the developing brain, specifically how children between infancy and the age of 5 that are exposed to music and dance on a consistent basis form neurological connections that support enhanced analytical thinking processes in adults. Vineeta went back to the drawing board and designed a program based on the Creative philosophy, focused on the “whole child”, while integrating the performing arts to drive academic excellence.
Children attending Building Kidz campuses began receiving weekly music, dance, theater, and foreign language classes. From the ages of 3 to 6, children were given the opportunity to perform a Broadway style show and a winter recital every year. Additionally, children started learning about science and mathematics through music and dance. Vineeta’s approach to early childhood education not only helped children excel academically and surpass their developmental milestones, it helped them gain confidence.
Our vision is to establish a foundation for a greater society though a global presence of preschools and non-profit partnerships resulting in one million children receiving a world class early childhood education. We launched our Franchise system in January of 2016. To date, we have 13 Franchise Agreements signed and we are expecting another 5 agreements to be signed before the end of 2017. We have 7 Franchised campuses and 2 corporate campuses in operation, and we have franchisees in California, Kentucky, Florida, and Georgia. Additionally, through our “Let’s Give Back Together” program, Building Kidz Worldwide sets aside 25% of our own profits to benefit underprivileged children around the globe. Our franchisees feel the joy of giving back without any requirement to contribute to this fund. Additionally, parents that select Building Kidz for their children are not only making a great decision for their families, they are helping children around the world.
