I'm very happy to see my son Manyl becoming more sociable and having a good team spirit thanks to the school activities, it really made his personality stronger and strengthened his leadership skills. I can see the impact even with his friends, he is more confident and can solve problems. Thanks to Odyssey, to the Reggio approach and benefits on my child, I noticed this after he started school. Thank you for your professionalism and for taking care for all the details and needs to help my child develop in a healthy way.

The Reggio Philosophy
Our Principles

The Reggio Emilia Approach is an educational approach that has established a worldwide reputation due to its ability to empower children to guide their own learning path, based on their interests and passions. It is a hands-on, flexible approach, that allows for an emergent curriculum within every learning space at Odyssey Reggio Preschool.

Odyssey Reggio Preschool is fully inspired by the Reggio infant-toddler centers and preschools in Reggio Emilia, Italy.
Here are the 6 guiding principles that have been adopted to support the development of every child:

The Image Of The Child

All babies and children have an innate curiosity to discover the world around them. At our preschool, the image of children is the foundation for which all learning lies.

100 Languages Of Reggio

Children possess a hundred languages. A hundred ways of thinking, a hundred ways of learning, and a hundred ways of expressing themselves. Our classrooms allow children to reach their extraordinary potential.

Adults as Co-Researchers

Our educators are partners in your child's learning process. The adults in Odyssey Reggio Preschool act as co-researchers to support the children in their projects.

The Third Teacher

Our learning environment aids in the independent and collaborative discoveries of our children. From space to light and mood, everything is designed to ensure the serenity and calmness for your child's exploration.

Meaningful Relationships

Meaningful relationships are vital for learning and development. In our classrooms, children engage in collaborative, long-term projects to build on each other’s learning and exploration.


Documentation are created to capture the learning and thinking processes of the children, and to transcribe some of the dialogue that took place between the children.

Personalized Support From Specialised Staff

We pride ourselves in hiring early learning practioners with a passion and understanding of children. Your children will receive personalised attention to feel safe & supported in a great learning environment.
Children’s learning and development flourish when trust, responsiveness, and love are fostered between them and their educators. Therefore, our team ensures that all bonds created are positive. This provides children with the confidence to guide their own learning path

Foundation Stage

At Odyssey Reggio Preschool, we tailor our approach to fit your child's specific needs. By providing speacialised attention to our children, we ensure they grow into their full potential while cultivating creativity and free thinking.
Preparing Your Child For School

At this stage, your child develops lots of lifelong skills such as collaborating with others, understanding the importance of teamwork, and asking questions (lots and lots of questions!). At Odyssey Reggio Preschool, we don't just encourage this. Each day we support our children in every way possible, enhancing their creativity and imagination.

Besides phonics, literacy, and numeracy skills, we also help your child gain understanding of how to observe, think critically, and communicate ideas in many ways, building self-esteem and confidence in the process.

  • Reggio Emilia based approach
  • Better social & emotional development
  • Positive mental health
  • Higher academic achievement
Odyssey nursery has really helped prepare my son for school. The reggio emilia approach allows children the freedom to explore, so this really encourages the children to be curious and eager to learn. The nursery also has a very friendly environment and a great community, so children learn a lot about being kind to each other, always caring about their friends feelings and also expressing their own feelings. I feel that this environment has really helped my son build his confidence and he was able to blend into the school environment easily. Thank you Odyssey for everything you have done!
