The Odyssey Journey

We began our journey way back in 1999, when the founding team witnessed the amazing exhibit, ‘The Hundred Languages of Children’ in San Francisco.

The schools of Reggio Emilia have earned international acclaim for its innovative pedagogy and powerful, practice-based theory in early childhood education. Inspired by its open-ended, child-centred learning philosophy, the team made the first exploratory trip to Reggio Emilia in 2001 to begin their research and experimentation of the various elements of its best practices.

In 2008, our relentless quest to conceptualise a unique, innovative early childhood pedagogy led to the birth of our first campus at Wilkinson Road.

Henceforth, we continued to expand our commitment to deliver quality preschool education to campuses in Fourth Avenue and De Loyang in Singapore, as well as Macalister and Eco Setia in Malaysia.
