A little about the cause… When Children’s Odyssey Preschool opened its doors in September 1992 four teachers programmed for 10 children. Today 38 teachers program for 115 children, ages 6 weeks to 6 years, the majority of whom demonstrate one or more educational or medical disabilities of varying degree and etiology including but not limited to Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Behavioral and Emotional Disorders. Teachers in all seven classrooms are versed in the Creative Curriculum ensuring systematic, developmentally appropriate, imaginative, and fun opportunities for our children to gain skills across all developmental domains. At the core of Children’s Odyssey’s philosophical foundation is the belief that children, regardless of abilities, learn from one another. Our integrative approach allows children who are identified to learn right alongside children who are typically developing while promoting greater understanding, appreciation and respect for individual differences, challenges, and strengths.
