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.
Together, our goal is to prepare your child for the future.
Our mission here at Odyssey English French Nursery, is to aid the growth of children allowing them to acquire autonomy, with the skills and competencies that are the essential basis of teaching. It relies on the children’s strong natural abilities at that age to mimic and invent whilst playing and engaging actively in fun activities.
This increases and stimulates children’s desire to learn further, whilst diversifying their experience and enriching their comprehension.
The early-childhood program in our nurseries in Dubai (and now also has nursery in Abu Dhabi) shall endeavour to maximize the potential of every child through an active partnership between children, teachers, caretakers, parents and administrators. We aim to achieve this by providing a positive, secure, caring environment and be the best nurseries in Dubai where individual differences are acknowledged and appreciated. We promote peace education, understanding and effective communication between home and school.
