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.

Yummy food

We enjoy delicious, healthy food everyday at Kids Konnect with fresh fruit-based snacks and nutritious vegetables with our meals. We operate as a nut-free center and all food is prepared on-site daily.

Excellent teachers

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! 

Grown ups welcome

We have an open door policy at Kids Konnect, so parents and guardians can pop in at anytime. We keep families in the loop with monthly updates of the fun that we get up to in class and you can also follow all of the action on Instagram too!

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.

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.

BA in Child Development

Hello! My name is Ria Aguinaldo. I come to Kids Konnect with five years of experience in the early childhood education field. I have worked in preschool settings alongside both typically developing students and students with disabilities. I am an advocate for inclusive learning and am always looking for ways to create a diverse, equitable and nurturing learning environment for children and their families to thrive.  

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my son. We love finding new places to eat and going on spontaneous adventures around the bay!

Over the past 30 years I have taught music and movement to various public and private schools. My favorite moments are what I refer to as “Light Bulb” moments when a child suddenly realizes that they have learned something new or accomplishes a self help task..

I’ve been through the highs and lows of parenthood which allows me to understand your child much better and care for them appropriately.

I look forward to getting to know your children and bringing the love of music into the program.

My name is Nancy. I have many years of childcare experience. I have always enjoyed working with very young children and I find their enthusiasm to be contagious and always changing. Each day I create an environment for learning and discovery. I believe that music can cultivate temperament, dancing is stimulation for the whole body and games are the starting point of interpersonal relationships.

Hi! I'm Jackie, I grew up in a big family of eight and I'm a lucky Auntie of 10! I have been around children all my life and always loved teaching. I had wonderful teachers growing up who had a huge positive impact on my childhood and I knew as young girl that I wanted to be just like them. I truly believe that providing a nurturing environment for children helps them feel secure and ready to play and explore. I am grateful and excited to be a part of the Kids Konnect team! In my free time I enjoy going hiking or walking on the beach with my husband and Black Lab Osito which means teddy bear in Spanish!
