Safari Kid Clerkenwell Preschool & Nursery

School should be a place of beauty and wonder – that’s exactly what our international nursery in Clerkenwell, London, provides for young, inquisitive learners.

The preschool itself used to be a church, repurposed now to house our innovative approach to education: a balance between work and play that prepares children for the next phase of their development.

In the heart of the UK capital, it’s rare to find somewhere as peaceful as our international nursery, but we’ve designed a learning environment that has outdoor, indoor and customized teaching facilities, closed off from the roar of London traffic.

Across 3,300 sq ft, there are an art studio, plentiful reading nooks, spaces for role play, and science and technology workstations for just 60 children.

From Spanish and French classes to Early Explorer programs, we welcome pupils as young as three months all the way to five years old.

What our parents say

Our team

Ms Sapfo Pantzaki

Nursery Manager

Hello, My name is Sapfo. Seven years ago, my husband and I relocated from Greece, kick-starting my journey as a music and art teacher in North West London for the under-5s. Both of my university degrees – a master’s and a bachelor’s – reflect those interests. Eventually, mainstream education came calling when I headed my own preschool centre. But my role at Safari Kid is so amazing because I can really indulge in creative activities!

Ms Eleni Chondrogianni

Deputy Manager

Hi, I'm Eleni and I am holding a Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) BA (Hons) and Early Childhood Education Paediatric First Aid qualification.

Ms Naziya Odud

Early Years Practitioner

Hello there, I am soon to be qualified as Level 3 Paediatric First Aid.

Ms Shannon France

Early Years Practitioner

Welcome to Clerkenwell, I hold a diploma in Children & Young Workforce Paediatric First Aid. That means I’m good with emergencies, even as I excel the most at what’s on my curriculum any given week.

Mr Craig Brown

Head of Preschool - Early Years Teacher

Hey, my name’s Craig, Well, I’ve got a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (P.G.CE) with Early years Teaching status on top of that. You can thank the University of Greenwich for that. What else? I’ve qualified for paediatric care and chemistry if we’re looking at the scope of my scientific pursuits. Nothing, however, can beat the reaction I get from the students, more than anything.

Ms Jieying Ivy Wang

Early Years Educator & Mandarin Teacher

Hello, My name’s Jieying and I have an MA in Early Years Education (UCL), along with a BA in Management with Entrepreneurship from Southampton. Don’t let that last part fool you - I love helping kids grasp Mandarin, far away from the stuffy offices I could’ve worked for if things had turned out differently…

Ms Rahimun Nessa Ruba

Early Years Practitioner

Hi all, After more than 10 years in professional childcare, there’s very little I haven’t seen or deal with. Safari Kid was my chance to be part of a progressive philosophy that feels new each day. Oh, and I have a Level 3 Childhood diploma, on the qualifications side!

Ms Georgia Spithouri

Early Years Educator

Hi all, I am from Crete, a sunny and beautiful island. I studied Early Childhood Education at the University of Athens. I have worked in an educational programme at the archaeological museum of Heraklion and as a volunteer with refugees’ children. Since coming to London I have been working in Montessori and Reggio Emilia inspired Preschools. I have also done my master course as a SENCO at UCL. My best friends will describe me as loyal, positive and a chocolate lover! I love travelling and learning about new cultures and civilizations.
