A Learning Journey
In January 2008, Odyssey, The Global Preschool welcomed children at the spacious Wilkinson Road campus, our first, with a team of highly qualified and enthusiastic educators and Curriculum Specialists, led by Centre Director, Ms Rupal Arora. Our latest campus at Fourth Avenue opened its doors on 1st April 2010. We are privileged to have children from more than 20 countries around the world as part of the Odyssey family.
Not just a Preschool
Odyssey also serves as a learning observation centre, regional centre of expertise for innovative and creative early childhood education approaches, and a research and development hub for early childhood education. Our programme is designed to showcase international best practices by promoting highly effective early childhood practices, adopting research-based educational principles and strategies that will optimise the development and enhancement of children’s lives.
The Odyssey’s rigorous, innovative curriculum offers many learner-centric benefits to children through experiences that are holistically, creatively, technologically and academically-enriched. Through our cutting-edge pedagogy which focuses on problem-based learning, the learning outcomes ensure children develop to become active communicators, inquirers and researchers, creative and critical thinkers and risk takers, and global citizens of the world.
