Now established in Medine Education Village, L’Odyssée du Savoir was co-founded in 2017 by parents with children of schooling age. This primary school – quite a revolutionary one in Mauritius, reconciles the precepts of several proven alternative models; recent knowledge in neurosciences, which demonstrate that children learn the best in a joyful mood. At L’Odyssée du Savoir, the word « teacher » is not used but rather « accompaniers »; and kids aged from 5 to 12 compose mixed-age classes where interaction nurtures learning.
The pedagogical approach is founded on a child’s natural desire to: discover, learn; acquire self-knowledge, be autonomous and, above all, be accepted in his or her uniqueness. L’Odyssée du Savoir, therefore, lays emphasis on acquiring executive competencies (memory, control, flexibility...) and psycho-social competencies; promotes social, cultural and linguistic diversity. The education provided thereby ensures the holistic and balanced development of the child.
