When we started looking for Pre-k schools for Milli, we were not sure if we will ever be able to get a Pre-K school we were looking for. One thing we knew that children between the ages of 2 and 3 years have a voracious learning abilities. With this in mind we started to look for Pre-K schools which will help build our daughter's capabilities around this learning abilities. We found that Safari Kids will be able to do just that. We enrolled Milli in Safari Kids. At that time she was 2 year 3 months old. Apart from her English, Math skills being developed, we personally saw Milli's other skills getting developed. One such incident was in a park, when Milli was 2years 6 months. After she came down a Tot slide, I got involved talking to a friend who happened to pass by. When I got my attention back to her, I found her talking to a Chinese person in her broken English. She was communicating with such confidence as though she was a pro and in full control. The Chinese person approached me and asked "How old is she?". I said "Two and a half." He was awed and asked "Which school she goes to?" I said "Safari Kids." Conversations like above were not uncommon. We found the Friday public speaking class of Safari Kids to build Milli's confidence and her stage fear was gone. She was able to go on stage in front of an audience of 3000 people and sing "Jana Gana Mana.." the Indian National Anthem. Today, Milli is still not in Kindergarten and she is able to read chapter books. She is able to do addition, subtraction and double digit additions. She has good understanding of shapes and colors and does a very good Art work. We believe Miss Shy has done a wonderful job, in imparting learning to Milli.

I started my daughter in Safari Kid Learning Center about 3 months ago, at the new campus in Milpitas. I was looking for something different than the usual daycare and for part time learning to make the transition into regular school easier on her, since she has already 2.5 yrs old and hadn't been out of the home environment.Since my daughter has started school here she has learnt so many things in the vast span of subjects/topic they teach. The teacher is very enthusiastic,energetic and passionate about teaching and the children. Not only has my daughter picked up so much academically but her self confidence, and her socializing skills haveimproved tremendously. Their attention to each child's need and developmentalstages is amazing. Though the school is growing each child has been given a lotof personal attention too. What more can a mother ask, when her child says, ' I had lots of 'fun' in schooltoday and can I come back tomorrow ?' , at each pick-up time.This school provides everything I had been looking for and much more......

My association with Safari Kid dates back to 2006 when my son was 18 months old. He is now four and a half. The staff, particularly Miss Shy have always given personal attention to the development of my son Vir. At Safari Kid, Vir has always been loved, nurtured, encouraged and taught, all beyond our expectations. I have always received compliments from friends visiting us about how much Vir knows academically or how well mannered he is and I always tell them that I alone can not take credit for that, the credit goes to Safari Kid as well! At the annual day every year, Vir has always been encouraged to perform on stage be it solo dancing or public speaking. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Safari Kid for helping us to raise our child to this confident, disciplined and knowledgeable kid!
