Holiday Closings

Holiday and In-Service Closings

Kids’ Safari is a family-friendly learning center that promotes family togetherness for both our families and staff. It is our practice to close on the following national holidays:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Good Friday
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Columbus Day (professional training for staff)
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Friday after Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Eve
  • Christmas Day
  • New Year’s Eve
  • Two Floating Holidays


Columbus Day is reserved for the continuing education of our staff. It is the belief of Kids’ Safari and State Licensing that teachers and assistant teachers maintain a commitment to self-education to improve and better their skills for the benefit of your children and our community. Please understand that we are aware of the inconvenience this may cause some families, but we strongly believe that the benefits of proper education and training for our staff exceed the inconvenience some may experience.

Kids’ Safari reserves the right to dedicate two floating holidays annually. These days will be determined and announced by January 1 of each year. Floating holidays act the same as all other holidays and are considered paid tuition days.

In addition, KSLC will close at 5:30pm on the designated day for Fright Fest each year. Fright Fest is planned in October prior to the Halloween holiday. A notice will be sent out to families with a reminder of the early closing one week prior to the date of Fright Fest.

All holidays and school closings are considered paid tuition days. If a family has accrued vacation credit (please see vacation policy) it may be taken for a holiday closing only if a two week written notice is given prior to the closing.
