Building Kidz School, a national preschool that incorporates performing arts into academic learning to enhance “whole child” development for children as young as three months, today opened the doors at its newest location, Building Kidz of Roswell. The school currently is enrolling students to start this month.
Located at 11516 Woodstock Rd., Building Kidz of Roswell is open Monday through Friday and offers extended school hours from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. to support local families. The newly-renovated 12,000-square-foot campus also represents Building Kidz’ first Georgia location.
Building Kidz integrates a traditional academic experience with performing arts programs and concepts, including dance, music and theater, to accelerate social emotional learning, cognitive and physical development, communication, and classroom capabilities. Beyond forging an environment that empowers and intellectually challenges children, Building Kidz leverages these artistic opportunities to build confidence, commitment and character among even its youngest students.
Through customized, age-appropriate curricula for its infant, toddler, preschool and pre-kindergarten classes, Building Kidz of Roswell also encourages familiarity and learning across language, math, science and social skills at individualized student paces while offering weekly performing arts lessons and periodic recitals and show productions.
“Although research indicates that children who study the performing arts tend to be happier, more self-confident and overall more academically successful, arts programs tend to be the first to go when schools cut budget,” said Chris Rodgers, owner of Building Kidz of Roswell. “Building Kidz is setting the stage for whole-child early education with a specific focus on allowing children to explore their creativity while developing new skills and learning core academics. We look forward to meeting the Roswell community and invite parents and students to tour the school and see all we offer.”
The Building Kidz faculty and staff includes seasoned educators, early education specialists, a registered nurse and childcare providers. Heather Oaks, a former caseworker for foster children and kindergarten and preschool teacher with a master’s degree in early childhood and elementary education, will serve as the school’s director. Kelly Henderson, a former first grade, third grade and EIP teacher with Fulton County Schools, also joins as Community Director.
Beginning today, Building Kidz of Roswell welcomes its founding families and the start of school for its first students. Families who enroll their students receive the first month free, with a month-to-month pay model moving forward.
Beyond empowering well-rounded students and offering parents peace of mind, Building Kidz nationally gives back to its communities through charitable contributions. Each Building Kidz school dedicates 25 percent of its profits to non-profit partnerships focused on improving the lives of underprivileged children in surrounding neighborhoods, all at no cost to parents or franchisees.
