Toddler & Preschool Programs

Safari Kid toddler and preschool programs present a balanced curriculum based on research and best practices. We combine play, skill-building, social-emotional development opportunities, and structured academics to promote your child’s success. Each learning experience is tailored to your child’s learning capabilities rather than their age. Your child will participate in ongoing assessments to ensure that they progress through programs when they’re ready.

Preschool level 1

Bambino Infant Program for infants from 6 weeks up to 17 months

We know leaving your infant in someone else’s care can be difficult. Our goal at Safari Kid is to make you feel confident in your choice, knowing that your infant is receiving high-quality and secure loving care. Our contemporary infant classrooms provide a sensory-rich and engaging environment to learn and process information. Infants feel welcome to safely explore and learn through all their senses. Our well-qualified and nurturing teachers encourage each child to learn, grow, and develop through our well-planned playful curricular activities. Bambino Infant Curriculum is designed with activities to help your baby develop their motor skills, emergent language skills, self-awareness, and much more.

+Our Quality Infant Care Focused on Safety, Security, and Healthy Development of Infants consists of the following daily activities:

Active Physical Play

Outdoor play is an important part of our daily routine for infants. It provides them with enhanced sensory experiences. Infants participate in activities that encourage crawling, balancing, and climbing. Outdoor play time is richly resourced with safe objects to play with such as balls, and toys for children to push, pull and ride.

Social & Emotional Development

Social-emotional development is essential to a young child’s sense of well-being. Their first relationships help shape who they are, who they become, and their understanding of the world. Our nurturing teachers and enriched curriculum help lay the foundation for a range of healthy social-emotional skills such as: 

  • Self-regulation
  • Empathy
  • Turn-taking and Sharing
  • Positive Relationship Building

Fine Motor Skills/Art/Sensory Play

With close supervision, children are given plenty of opportunities to safely play with different textures such as water, sand, clay, fingerpaints, and more.

Music and Movement

Infants are invited to dance, clap to the rhythm of songs, and even sing along.

Block Play

We encourage our infants to play with wooden and soft blocks daily, to promote imagination and set the foundation for spatial and mathematical learning.

Dramatic Play

Pretend play is enhanced with real objects such as pots and pans, typewriters, and phones. Infants are also privy to high quality toys, dolls, and stuffed animals.

Nature/Science

Infants are encouraged to use their senses and even special tools like a magnifying glass to observe and investigate the world around us. With teacher support, simple scientific investigations are presented such as growing plants from seeds, studying animals/insects, examining the texture of leaves, and sorting various types of flowers.

Language & Literacy

The early years are critical for literacy development. At Safari Kid we make engaging our infants in activities that promote language and literacy a key focus. Our daily routine includes singing songs, engaging with physical books, enjoying a lively story time, observing and participating in sign language, and using every opportunity to both talk and model active listening.

Math

Babies develop math concepts very early on through everyday experiences. Our teachers are trained to know how to foster math concepts through language in a natural way, i.e. “That is heavy!”, “Can you bring me two blocks? Our math program introduces numbers, sequencing, patterns, sorting and classifying, and informal simple measurement through hands-on learning.
