Welcome to Safari Kid!
At Safari Kid, we believe childhood should be celebrated! Our proprietary preschool curriculum takes inspiration from a mix of both traditional methods (Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Waldorf) and reflects current brain research on early childhood development. This has resulted in a focus on the whole child, in which we offer the perfect balance of learning and play. Our daycare and preschool programs are carefully developed to ignite curiosity and encourage lifelong learning, but it doesn’t end there! We also offer a well-rounded after-school program for children in kindergarten through 8th grade, which provides a combination of valuable academic support and engaging extra-curricular enrichment.
Allow us to help turn your child’s Potential into Possibilities at Safari Kid Burlington.
We know leaving your infant in someone else’s care can be difficult. Our goal at Safari Kid is to make you feel confident, knowing that your infant is receiving high-quality and secure loving care in a sensory-rich and engaging environment. In the first few years of life, more than a million new neural connections are formed every second. We ensure our nurturing teachers are trained to interact and respond to your infant with purpose and intent. Our approach helps positively support proper brain development. They will engage with other bambinos through simple sensory explorations, books, songs, moving & grooving to music, and organic, safe toy play. Through these playful interactions, our bambinos learn and grow—developing motor skills, emergent language skills, self-awareness, and much more.
At Safari Kid, we focus on whole-child development through a combination of programs that develop and enhance social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. We welcome our toddlers, our “Safari Cubs,” with a range of engaging activities, developmentally appropriate educational materials and books, and toddler-sized furniture and toys made of natural materials. Research shows toddlers need to feel safe and comfortable but also engaged and challenged. Our Cubs enjoy activities such as yoga and mindfulness, parachute story time, STREAM mini-exploration projects, art lab, music & movement, and so much more. Our modern and safe environment will feel as welcoming as our warm, nurturing staff. Your toddler will receive encouragement and positive reinforcement every step of the way.
