A Joyful Journey of Development

We are committed to providing an opportunity for each individual child to continue their innate love of learning and to make education a joyful process.

Welcome to Odyssey Montessori

Odyssey Montessori has two locations, The Christie Campus and The Sorauren Campus. Both schools have a Casa program for children between 2 ½ -6 years and a Montessori Toddler, also known as the Young Children’s Community (YCC), program for children between 18 months-2 ½ years. 

At Odyssey Montessori, we have created a nurturing and enriching environment that embodies what Dr.Maria Montessori established when developing the Montessori philosophy of education. 

The Montessori environment at Odyssey guides children in their intellectual, physical, and social journey of development to ensure that children can act upon their natural love of learning and give them the opportunity to embark on a joyful journey of development.

"The groups should contain different ages. It has great influence on the cultural development on the child…You cannot imagine how well a young child learns from an older child; how patient the older child is with the difficulties of the younger." Dr. Maria Montessori
“The child has a different relation to his environment from ours… the child absorbs it. The things he sees are not just remembered; they form part of his soul. He incarnates in himself all in the world about him that his eyes see and his ears hear.” -Maria Montessori

The Guide

The teacher’s task is first to nourish and assist, to watch, encourage, guide, induce, rather than to interfere, prescribe, or restrict.

We must help the child.

Mixed Age Group

The multi-age grouping in each class provides a family-like setting - a community , which is intrinsic to Montessori. This setting encourages rich language experiences, and opportunities for the development of empathy and socialization.

Independence

“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed”
