Mumbai is a melting pot of so many cultures and ways of life. Our Safari Kid nursery centre in Marol, takes a similar, blended approach to early learning. We want to make your children ready for an unpredictable world, so our programmes can be customised!

Babies, toddlers and preschoolers are given a 6,000 sq ft space to indulge their passions every day. Our East-meets-West teaching philosophy is ideal for such a dynamic location. Half of our centre is dedicated to indoor classes (languages, maths, technology, and more), whilst the rest houses our swimming pool, large outdoor play area and nurse’s station. A large indoor play area in addition to the classes ensure all-weather physical development and fun for children!

This is our fourth international preschool in Mumbai. We welcome children from the age of nine months to seven years – you’ll find us a few minutes down from Apollo Hospital, on Military Road. Speak to our team to plan your visit.

Nirmala Alam

Level 1 Co-Teacher

Hello, parents and teachers, My name is Nirmala Alam. I graduated university with a Bachelor of Arts major in Psychology & Sociology, from St. Andrews College (Bandra). That was only the beginning of my ultimate lessons in life… Having been a mother of three beautiful girls, I realised that teaching is such a beautiful experience - maybe the finest we can achieve. I, therefore, went on to earn my Early Childhood Care & Education from Safal’s teachers' training institute, landing me as a nursery teacher for The Porridge Years, another Mumbai preschool.

Zoya Shaikh

Level 1 Co-Teacher

Hi, I’m Zoya. My experience runs to two years as a headteacher with another institutions, but any kind of teaching is fine for me - I’ve always been extremely fond of children in all their guises and questions. Being somewhere like this was a childhood dream for me. I earned my BA English Literature before gaining a diploma in Early Childhood Care and & Education from the Kangaroo Kids preschool, in Bandra. For the future, I can’t wait to explore my love of learning with a fresh set of students, as well as a curriculum that can’t be topped elsewhere in the world!

Scarlet Spitz

Day Care Teacher

Greetings everybody, My name is Scarlet Spitz. I honed in on my BA from University of Mumbai, and an Early Care & Childhood Education pass from Safal teachers training institute. Passion and affection can be two separate things, so I choose this field in order to meld both within my teaching style, inspiring kids to do the same. My best is always on display.

Saba Zia

Assistant Teacher Level 1

Hello there, I’m Saba Zia and my career began with The Porridge Years (like a few others on our staff count!) and I have nine years’ experience teaching nursery and junior kg students. I earned my Bachelor of the Arts from Mumbai University and completed my Montessori course with CERDS, the playbook of that particular learning style. Teaching is, quite simply, who I am, as children keep inspiring me every day.
