Hours

Safari Learning® Preschool is open from 7 am to 6 pm, Monday – Friday.

Several teachers, aides, the receptionist and the director will be available beginning at 8:15 am.

Preschool half-day = 8am to 1pm
Preschool full day = 7am to 6pm

According to California Title 22 Regulations, toddlers and preschoolers must be kept separate during play and instruction time because of their developmental needs. However, they can “conjoin” for meals and some activities. This will be the case from 7 am to 8 am if numbers of students are low. This also may be the case from 5 pm to 6 pm as the numbers of children dwindle.
