The SMR (Specialized Morning Routines)
Our customized programs are not designed by age groups but by the child’s individual learning capacity.
Our SMR is based on Effective Teaching Principles of Accelerated Learning. This method dramatically reduces learning time while covering more material. Safari kid students thrive in a well-ordered and predictable environment, where daily routines can help ensure the consistency that young children need and also helps teachers encourage all areas of development by planning a wide range of activities. Our fun and engaging routines are great opportunities for learning. Teachers foster curiosity and critical thinking through open ended questions and by the use of open ended material.
We recognize parents as the first teachers of the children. We are constantly engaging with parents and listening to their needs for their children and cater to their satisfaction. With the incorporation of efficient modern technology Safari Kid has built a customized platform for organizing and sharing student learning experiences with parents. At safari kid we build mutual understanding and cooperation with parents through specialized programs of parent education. Our Newly introduced Newsletter “The Safari Times” reaches out to parents across the world.
