We are Nigeria's first Thinking School
How your child will benefit.
A Thinking School supports students to think "outside the box." Students will be able to deconstruct their own learning process and even find out what works best for them. The Thinking School approach is not just a subject but an approach to be used by every teacher in every subject. Thinking will help students tackle difficult questions more creatively.
This very exciting initiative forms part of the Greensprings School's goal of redefining education in Africa.
We ultimately aim to support our alumni so that they can develop solutions that will not only help their own families and communities but can also help Nigeria and Africa to move forward.

We are accredited by Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education
Though a lot of schools in Nigeria claim to run the Montessori programme, only two schools are accredited by the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE), the international standard-setting and accrediting body for Montessori teaching practise.
We are one of the two schools accredited, and this is because our learning environments and teachers are in conformity with the globally accepted standards for Montessori education. Your child will soar high with this standard.
Your child will work with inspiring teachers that actually care about children's growth
Your child will work with highly qualified teachers and caregivers that will help his or her overall growth.
Our selection process is very rigorous, and we work with only experienced teachers who have both the skills and the heart.
Cultivate your child's intelligence and build his or her confidence
Our preschool has been fashioned in a way that helps children articulate their thinking and speech. Children become much more confident in the process. Our teachers will serve as the guide to encourage your child through these developmental processes.
Your child will learn to develop independence in a conducive learning environment
Your child will benefit from self-directed learning in very conducive environment. When you enrol your child in our preschool, he or she will experience an adapted form of the Montessori method of education, which enables children to achieve their full potential.
Practical Life Exercises
A home away from home
The preschool section of Greensprings School is a specially prepared Montessori environment, laying a solid foundation for children between the ages of 18 months and 5 years. All our pupils follow an adapted form of the Montessori method of child education, which is regarded throughout the world as unsurpassed in its ability to help younger children achieve their full potential.
The crèche can be described as a "home away from home" with the aesthetic ambience of the environment; tastefully furnished to cater for the needs of the tiny tots and the demands of discerning parents.
Our ultra-modern creche is here to cater for your child
To make our creche in Lagos accessible to all parents that want the best of care for their children, while they remain productive, we have sited our creches in strategic locations.
If you live on the Lagos mainland, our Anthony preschool has a dedicated section that is specially designed to care for babies; parents leaving on the island can enjoy the ambience of our creche in our Lekki campus preschool.
Why choose our creche
- Qualified Caregivers
- Serene Environment
- Individualized Learning
- Play-based Learning
We understand that babies and toddlers are very vulnerable, as they are at the early stage of development. For that reason, our creche in Lagos is staffed with only trained and qualified caregivers. We also ensure our team of caregivers are made up of people with a natural affinity for toddlers.
When setting up our creche, our plan is to provide the best creche in Lagos. Therefore, we ensure the room is spacious with adequate light and ventilation. To also ensure our caregivers are dedicated and not overwhelmed, we adopt a 3:1 caregiver-to-baby ratio in our creche. Our primary objective is to ensure babies in our care are comfortable at all times, by changing their wet diapers on time, giving them nutritious food according to their need and encouraging good habits through routine activities such as potty training.
Our caregivers understand how boys and girls grow and learn; they also take their time to study and understand the interest of each child in their care. Hence, they give each child the required attention that will enable him or her to learn and develop relevant skills.
Through play-based learning, your child gets to play, have fun, and still learn alphabets and numbers. This method not only helps your child with speech but enhances the essential skill of communication.
We have policies that ensure your child is safe in our creche in Lagos. For instance, children can only be picked up by the parents or any registered members of a family. Our creche is safe and secure with access controls and trained security personnel who ensure the creche is protected from invaders.

What We Have And How We Do It
State-of-the-art classroom designed to develop interest in preschool learning
The fit-for-purpose classrooms and play areas are carefully designed to develop keen interest in learning and sense of orderliness in children.
Stimulating learning environment
We provide a stimulating and enjoyable learning environment that is required to prepare students to become global citizens. The environment is aesthetically pleasing and simple, developing a sense of splendor in the child.
Reality and nature
An experience of the natural environment is given to help the child achieve harmony with nature.
Movement & play
According to Maria Montessori, play is regarded as children's work and movement is an essential part of developmental growth. We ensure that children engage in creative play, which helps to build their social skills, language acquisition and self esteem.
This develops the child’s awareness. It helps to build the required concepts for learning and sounds necessary for appropriate language development.
Practical life exercises
These include elementary movements and preliminary activities such as classroom conduct, development of fine motor skills -- pouring, transferring, sweeping, opening and closing -- care for self, care for the environment and exercises for the development of social skills, grace and courtesy.
This develops the following senses of the child: chromatic (sense of colours), hearing, sight, smell, touch, taste and the muscular dimension (fine and gross control). Sensorial materials with control of errors help to refine the child’s senses.
World class, highly qualified teachers
Our qualified teachers have the ability to attend to every child according to the unique need, relentlessly making sure every child develops the desired ability to succeed.
