Safari Kid of San Mateo, CA

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 San Mateo.

Programs Offered

Toddler – 18 months to 2 years

Our Programs

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.

At Safari Kid, our proprietorial preschool curriculum and research-based teaching methods will help your child meet developmental milestones, prepare for kindergarten, and, most importantly, foster a love of learning. By harnessing the benefits of both play and hands-on learning, our preschool programs represent a balance of learning domains—including investigative STREAM explorations, yoga and mindfulness, music and movement, conversational foreign language acquisition, art, story explorations, and so much more. Our enriching and engaging curriculum allows children to learn through purposeful, planned learning, which feels like play and encourages healthy interaction with other children.
