Prepare Your Children For the Challenges of Tomorrow at Safa ELC
Safa Kindergarten Nursery was established in April 1979 and our second branch, New Safa Nursery, opened in 1989.  In 2014, the Safa Nurseries changed their name to Safa Early Learning Centres.  Both centres operate under the same management since 1979 and are ISO certified for quality, environment, health and safety. 
 
All our classrooms are spacious, bright and well-equipped to meet the needs of each age group. Our premises are monitored by CCTV security cameras. Our warm, nurturing staff are committed to excellence and take great pride in creating attractive and unique learning environments for children. Our qualified educators are skilled in Early Childhood Education and Development with many years of teaching experience and they speak multiple languages.

For the general welfare of all children we have a Registered Nurse at the centre and a Doctor who makes regular scheduled visits to monitor the health and development of our children. All educators and classroom assistants are trained in Paediatric First Aid.
