    Where does the name Calliope come from and how is it pronounced? Calliope (pronounced "cal-EE-OH-pea") is a Greek name. Calliope Academy is named after Calliope Chaldaris.


    Calliope Chaldaris (1944-2015) was an incredibly loving caregiver who cared for generations of children in the Los Angeles area. Her home care program ran for nearly 40 years serving families struggling to balance childcare and work. The children she cared for became her family. Calliope was the embodiment of love and a playful spirit.


    Calliope Academy will continue to provide love and a playfulness for the children it serves in honor of who she was. We at Calliope Academy believe ALL children deserve to grow and learn in a program filled with love and a playful spirit.
