Everyone is welcome at Kids Konnect

 

Welcome to the newest Kids Konnect Preschool - San Mateo Downtown! 

Our newest Kids Konnect Preschool is centrally located in Downtown San Mateo, an area packed with Michelin-starred eateries, thriving small businesses and a history dating back to 1863. 

Our San Mateo classrooms are buzzing with activities for your infant, toddler, preschool or pre-kindergarten child to experience. Our teacher to child ratio is amongst the lowest on the Peninsula and STEAM subjects (science, technology, arts, engineering and math) are at the heart of our play-based curriculum.

Play-based Curriculum

Children are meant to have fun in the early years but that doesn't mean they can't pick up skills and knowledge at the same time. Go on, click play.

The teachers at Kids Konnect are each individually qualified in early childhood development and dedicated to the ongoing learning and development of each child. And of course they are fun, loving and creative! 

Lots of activities

We provide different areas for creative play, exercise, eating together, and of course story time. There are lots of activities to keep us all very busy all day long, learning and exploring new things with one another. We also love to run around and play games in our fabulous outside area.

 

Outdoor play area

We love our outdoor area in the glorious Californian sunshine! Every child can enjoy a vast space for safe outdoor fun from playing in the sand and climbing, to gardening and even bike riding, there's so much for your child to do!

Sample Day

At Kids Konnect San Mateo - Downtown we have a busy schedule that's designed to make the most out of each day we have with the children. Here's an example of what your child could expect during a day with us.

Good morning!

7.30am: School opens! We have a free choice of art, blocks, books, puzzles, dramatic play, science or table toys on offer while everyone arrives.

8:50am: We clean up and wash our hands ready for a healthy morning snack at 9am.

9:15am: It's time for group activities such as music and movement, and story time. 

11am: Outdoor play in the sunshine on the big play equipment or on the grass. 

Lunch & naps

11:30am: Lunch time! We eat our fruit and veg packed lunches together and when we're finished we go outside to run around in the sunshine. 

12:30pm: We're starting to feel tired by now, so it's story time followed by a nap or rest in a quiet space. 

Afternoon fun

3pm: We wake up from our naps and brighten ourselves up with some music and movement. 

3:30pm: We enjoy a scrumptious afternoon snack and then we head outside again for an hour if the weather is nice to stretch our legs. 

From 4.30pm there is free choice on all indoor activities until home time at 6pm.

Teacher Fieon

School Director

Fieon Yu 

Managing Director 

Bachelor's Degree in Adolescent Development & Early Childhood Education

My name is Fieon Yu and I graduated from San Francisco State University with a Bachelor's degree in Child and Adolescent Development, majoring in Early Childhood Education and minoring in Special Education. I have 10 years of experience in the Early Childhood Education field and have grown from being a volunteer and teacher's assistant to being a lead teacher and then a center director. I have loved every bit of my journey so far and have truly enjoyed building relationships with many different families and children along the way. Watching children grow at their own individual paces and being a part of their development has been so rewarding. It is important for a family to feel that their child is in good hands, so providing a safe and nurturing environment is a priority to me. I am looking forward to continue working at Kids Konnect for many years to come!

On my personal time, I'm a huge foodie and I love trying new restaurants, I enjoy working out, and spending time with my husband and our 9-month old daughter.

Teacher Brittney  

School Director 

Associate of Arts degree in Early Child Development & Bachelors Degree in Human Development at Cal State East Bay (studying now)

My name is Brittney Rose Cacas, I was born and raised here in Hayward, California. My parents are both Filipino and Irish. I have been in the early childhood field for over thirteen years. As a Director, I bring both years of education and hands-on experience when working with young children. It is a pleasure working with young children because they are known to be like sponges due to their abilities to absorb everything. 

The most important time for development is birth through five years old. It is my job as a School Director to provide a quality care environment for the teachers, families, and children. When I started my early childhood education journey my professor shared a quote with me: “It takes a village to raise a child,“. I love this quote because I love when people work together. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family while eating homemade meals. I'm looking forward to building positive relationships with both children as well as their families.
