Safari Kid Meydan District One Nursery

Safari Kid Meydan District One is located in purpose-built premises in District One of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City in Dubai.

Located on the old camel track area in Nad Al Sheba adjacent to Meydan Grandstand and 5 minutes from Dubai Mall and Downtown Dubai. We are located in close proximity to Business Bay, Nad Al Sheba and Al Quoz. Our specially designed international nursery offers children the ability to fully express themselves in both an indoor and outdoor environment.

Our preschool facilities include an outdoor play area, sandpit, and hand-selected play equipment. There is a large indoor play area for physical and motor skills development when it’s too hot to play outside.

Safari Kid Meydan District One also features a purpose-built creative lab, where children explore dance, drama, music and free role play. The design of our preschool and the classrooms are intended to excite the imagination of the children and provide a stimulating learning environment.

The learning environment encompasses reading corners in every classroom, specific areas for role play, sensory development, and skills development, creative spaces, and science and tech corners. Our spacious classrooms are fully equipped with state of the art toys and play equipment that facilitate the development and education of our young charges.

Our nursery facilities for the youngest children (4 months to 18 months) elevate care-giving to the next level with a purpose-built baby room and play areas where specific developmental toys and resources are employed for enhanced development at this tender young age.
