With increasing double income households, preschools and day cares are no longer a luxury or an option, but rather a necessity for parents today. In such a scenario, parents look for the best and safest space for their children. Touted to be a Rs. 3,500 crore industry in India, pre-schools are abundant in every city today. However, it is crucial how parents choose the best pre-school that facilitates growth for their children.

A good preschool provides a strong foundation for learning, both socially and academically. Quality is at the core of success for any business to run. It runs truer in the pre-school space as it is primarily linked with young children. The first few years of their lives become the foundational blocks for the kind of growth they have.

Safari Kid International Preschool is a global brand in the preschool space, with over 50 centres across 7 countries. They offer young minds the platform to grow and learn in every sphere of development. The preschool strongly believes that the best approach to early years’ learning is to combine free and structured play in beautiful and engaging learning environments with an education programme that facilitates development across multiple areas.

Safari Kid believes that every child is different, and their learning curves are equally unique. Upholding this thought, the preschool is known for its customisation and ability to interact with children using their respective interest areas and skills. The core of Safari Kid lies at four Cs – Customisation, Curriculum, Care and Communication; which forms their strong pedagogical path. Children are most susceptible to forming their understanding of the world in the first five years of their lives, and it is important that preschools provide consistent services across their centres to run standardised best practices.

All of their centres are created to be sensory-rich learning environments. The set-up is not like a usual preschool, but instead a lot more fluid in the way children interact with peers and teachers or the way they learn concepts in their day-to-day life. Their staff is trained for more than 100 hours by their international curriculum management that sets the benchmark for all their centres. This global curriculum has proven to be more effective when children from Safari Kid and other peers were evaluated. One of the most unique features is also our power to customise curriculum and the overall experience based on the child’s requirement and skills.

Language is given utmost importance at Safari Kid with focus on developing each child’s linguistic skills by including local languages as well as English and Spanish. The school believes that play is the best way to learn advanced concepts in language and math which is the reason students of Safari Kid are two grade levels ahead of their peers when they leave for primary school.

The Safari Kid Ethos

Care: Children are brought up in a secure and warm environment to stimulate effective nourishment and development in the early years.

Customisation: Each child develops at a different pace. Their effective programmes are customised based on what a child needs.

Curriculum: Children are taught through a combination of play, explorative learning and a structured approach to academics.

Communication: Parents are partners with Safari Kid in the early childhood journey of their children. Effective communication with parents is the key to the overall development of the child.
