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 Mowry West, CA.
After a tough day at work, Safari Kid parents feel comforted knowing their child has not only successfully completed their homework but also enjoyed learning something new! Safari Kid offers a comprehensive After School Program. We offer structured learning and tutoring coupled with a diverse choice of extracurricular activities. Our Safari Kid After School Program offers daily help with schoolwork but also provides supplemental mathematics and English Language Arts lessons that align directly with Common Core Standards. While academic learning is our primary goal, we also ignite interest beyond the core subjects through exciting enrichment activities that promote a love for new learning. Depending on demand, centers offer such enrichment classes as creative writing, public speaking, chess, robotics, visual arts, and performing arts. Students participating in Safari Kid’s After School Program consistently test above grade level, and many earn awards for academic achievement. We’re so proud of our Safari Kids and excited to be a part of their amazing growth!
Meet the Staff
Ms. Sonal Jagad
Hello! My name is Sonal Jagad and I am the proud owner of Safari Kid Mowry – the first franchise of Safari Kid. I have a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree from Mumbai University with specialization in Home Science and Child Development. l love being around children and believe all kids deserve to have a safe educational environment to learn and grow. As a mother, it never ceases to amaze me how children think and learn — and what wonders can be achieved if they are exposed to a caring and nurturing environment. I have two children of my own who have grown up to become wonderful young adults pursuing their dreams in the field of engineering and medical science.
I started my association with Safari Kid over 16 years ago as a teacher/director and have owned Safari Kid Mowry for the last 12 years. Today, Safari Kid Mowry operates two centers in central Fremont, California and I am proud to say we have positively impacted the lives of hundreds of children over the last decade. We strive every day to provide a lasting education to each child that comes through our center.
I believe it is very common in the childcare industry and specifically in preschools to get bogged down in the daily schedules of taking care of children. That just should not be the case. As the song goes children are OUR future, teach them well and let them lead the way – this is so true. At Safari Kid Mowry, we are pleased to offer the newest, most exciting, innovative programs in childcare. Our classrooms are unique in that they target the younger students to assist with their fine and gross motor skills, sensory stimulation and social interactions . Our Safari Kid education program promises to benefit the younger children, but also our afterschoolers who can always use extra positive affirmation and guidance.
At Safari Kid Mowry, we recognize that our parents have busy schedules and we support them the best we can. We offer pick-up and drop-off services, in-house extra-curricular activities like – Dance, Chess, Lego Robotics, Public Speaking, Debate and many more so that their schedules can be accommodated.
I hope that you decide to tour our school and become part of our team – the team for children. I look forward to meeting you and your family.
