Odyssey Nursery Dubai
Odyssey French Nursery, as one of the top preschools and nurseries in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, believes that a child’s first steps are the most important and they will set them on the path of life. We strive to ensure that the first steps are the best steps, with our commitment to a Holistic approach to education presented in not one but THREE languages.
Odyssey English French Nursery is considered one of the best nursery schools in Dubai and Abu Dhabi because we believe in exposing children to two or more languages from an early age. Our English, French and Arabic classes will give your child the power of communication in an increasingly interconnected global community and provide the tools for them to become successful members of society.
Odyssey English French Nursery has a “learn through play” approach in which learning a language is not an objective in itself, but rather a way of communicating with others. We are committed to Early Years Education children are actively engaged through conceptual and experiential play in order to confront real problems, make choices, and find solutions. This leads us to developing the whole child socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. Research suggests that using ‘play’ may be one of the most effective means to learning.
The Vision for the early childhood education at Odyssey English French Nursery School is to provide a learner-centered approach to education where each child will develop academic excellence, social responsibility and personal integrity supported by a healthy community culture in a thriving, joyful, nurturing and safe learning environment. It strives to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of each and every child while under the nurseries premises, in order to prepare them for success in a rapidly changing world.
Our Curriculum here at Odyssey French English Nursery is based on the WASHINGTON STATE DOMAINS AND DEVELOPMENTAL BENCHMARKS. These standards and benchmarks help us as educators and parents identify children’s knowledge about the real world and more importantly how they encounter new situations, concepts, and challenges. In a few words it is what and how they are learning. Our job in that sense is to provoke, stimulate and help them to make sense of what they are encountering.
The Domains are defined as follows:
– Physical Health, Well-being and Motor Development
– Social and Emotional Development
– Approaches toward Learning
– Cognition and General Knowledge
– Language, Communication and Literacy
Odyssey French English Nursery’s curriculum planning and execution is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy. Reggio Emilia is a town in Italy that has been recognized for its innovative approach to education. It is not a philosophy with a set system of beliefs but rather an approach based on the fundamental values about how children learn.
The Fundamental beliefs of the Reggio Emilia approach is
– Children must have some control over the direction of their learning;
– Children must be able to learn through experiences of touching, moving, listening, and observing;
– Children have a relationship with other children and with material items in the world that children must be allowed to explore;
– Children must have endless ways and opportunities to express themselves.
With this approach we believe that children have their own voice and rights and they should be given the opportunity to develop their full potential.
