Safari Kid Sheikh Zayed Road Nursery

Our flagship international preschool in Dubai is located in 15,000 square feet of customized villa premises behind the Four Points Sheraton on Sheikh Zayed Road. It is in close proximity to Downtown Dubai, Business Bay, DIFC, Jumeirah and City Walk. 5 minutes away from the urban hub of Dubai, our specially designed nursery offers children the ability to fully express themselves in both an indoor and outdoor environment.

The preschool facilities include a huge outdoor play area, a swimming pool, an art studio, 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 Sheikh Zayed Road also features a purpose-built Creative Lab, where children explore dance, drama, music and free role play.

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 the range of state of the art toys and play equipment that facilitate the development and education of our young charges.

Our child care facilities for our 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.

Safari Kid international nursery Sheikh Zayed Road partners the parents in the developmental journey of your child. Our centre includes a parents’ lounge for informal interactions between parents and the school, to get to know the other parents, or just to relax while your children attend their classes.

Ms Joan Solomon Lorbis

Teaching Assistant - Level 1A

Hello there! I’ve always loved being around children. They fascinate me with they way they grasp new subjects. That’s what led me to start working as a teaching assistant when I moved to the UAE, and further develop my training in Early Childhood Education and childcare. Having moved to Dubai and joined Safari Kid, I embrace the opportunity to inspire independence in children through art and craft, sensory and messy play activities, and singing and dancing. At the same time, I try to bring a calm and balanced aura to the classroom!

Ms Daisy Arhami

Junior Teacher - Level 1 A

Hello everyone, I always knew I wanted to work with children, so majored in Early Childhood Education back in the Philippines in 1999. Since moving to Dubai in 2002, I’ve worked in various settings and gained lots of experience working with children who have additional needs. I always strive to find children’s unique talents, as they feel tremendous pride and a sense of accomplishment when completing tasks independently! It’s great to play a role in boosting their self-confidence as a Junior Teacher here at Safari Kid.

I studied Serbian Language and Literature at the University of Philosophy and I am a holder of Master Degree in Education. I am a senior teacher in Safari Kid Dubai. I have 11 years of teaching experience in Dubai. It is my passion to apply my pedagogic and didactic expertise to children and see them transforming from babies to small individual people.

Hi, My name is Sloba and I am very excited to be teaching Adventures Toddlers in the Safari Kid Nursery this year. I am originally from Serbia, which is a place very close to my heart. I hold a diploma in Art and BSC degree from University in Belgrade for Teaching in the Pre-school Institutions and have a high passion for working with children.

Ms Levie U. Ganub

Teaching Assistant - Turbo Toddlers

Hello! I’ve always been in education: as a licensed teacher I have a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and I’ve been a member of the Philippine Teachers’ Association since 1998. I’m experienced in working with children from the age of two months to four years and over, and believe that children learn and develop best when lessons are tailored to the needs of each child. By I’m a huge advocate of setting up a carefully planned learning environment that enables and encourages meaningful learning.

Ms Angeli Tano

Teaching Assistant - Turbo Toddlers

Greetings. I’m from Lemery Batangas in the Philippines and have been working with young children since I came to Dubai in 2009. My background is very diverse; I have a bachelor’s degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management and have also trained in Musical Performance Voice. I believe by allowing young children to be adventurous and creative when learning, and letting them develop in their own space, they become risk takers who constantly challenge themselves to achieve goals. Safari Kid does this, all within the security of a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment.

Ms Ruth Redillas

Teaching Assistant - Turbo Toddlers

Hi everyone, I am from Southern Philippines. I have completed a degree in Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. I have experience of many years as a Teaching Assistant Coordinator in my previous school and have successfully completed my Cache Level 2 course here in Dubai. Taking care of children is so rewarding because it is the stage where they start to explore and develop their skills and abilities in their very own uniqueness. I love to share my knowledge, skills and experience to guide and support your child’s growth and development.

Ms Sadia Ammarene

Lead Teacher - Early Explorer

Bonjour! I love languages, and speak Arabic, French, Berber and English fluently. My passion is being part not only of a child’s linguistic development, but also their all-round growth. In my eyes, this is our duty as educators!

Ms Geraldine Rosarda

Teaching Assistant - Early Explorers

Hi, My passion for working with children started when I became a school nurse in the Philippines. Here, I came to enjoy every aspect of interacting with children and watching them grow. I believe education is not just preparation for life; education is life itself. That’s what inspired me to join Safari Kid a few years after moving to Dubai.

Ms Roxanne Canon

Receptionist and Administration Assistant

Hi there, My name is Roxanne Mae Canon and I am the Receptionist and Admin Assistant at Safari Kid Nursery. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and a licensed nurse from the Philippines. My career here in Dubai is very different from what I have experienced back home. However, my passion to work doesn't bother me even if it's a completely different field as I am giving my best for the team and to contribute to the company's growth.

Ms Dona J. Ganotisi


Hi! My career started in nursing back in the Philippines, although I’ve been working in teaching since moving to Dubai around five years ago. As someone who is always willing and eager to learn new things in life, my passion is to care for, love, teach, and look after the growth, development, welfare and safety of children. After all, they are our most precious gifts!
