30 November 2022| Last updated on 30 November 2022
3 weeks of non-stop fun and learning at this exciting children's winter camp experience, open for all children from 45 days to 6 years old!
Odyssey Nurseries' Reggio on Ice winter camp invites all babies and children (up to the age of 6) who are staying in Dubai for the winter break to spend an unforgettable time with their second family - their Odyssey family. All our alumni are super excited to return to Odyssey, bringing with them their friends and neighbours, and once their outside community joins, Odyssey winter camp becomes more joyful.
Choosing to send your child to Odyssey’s annual winter camps is a fantatistic opportunity to help support your child's development.
Additionally, as the winter camp remains open until 5PM, mums and dads can relax knowing that their children are exploring, collaborating, and creating wonders with their friends in a safe and nurturing environment until it's time to go home.
The holiday season is when we tend to break the routine and do things that are fun.
At every Odyssey camp, a different theme is chosen for the children to embark on and explore. This year, the chosen topic is Reggio on Ice, and the types of activities are carefully designed for the children to get fully emersed within the Reggio Emilia approach. The children will also encounter activities outside the walls of the nursery.
The winter camp at Odyssey Nurseries is offered in both French and English by their professional staff of experienced teachers and teaching assistants, so if you would like to expose your child to a new language, this is a great opportunity.
The environment at Odyssey is completely changed, from their outdoor garden to the classrooms, so that kids can fully engage in their projects, following the Reggio approach.
