Your child will get a well-rounded education:





We are Nigeria's first Thinking School

How your child will benefit.

  • Your child will experience global teaching methods based on international best practice
  • Your child will be trained to become an innovative, world-class student
  • Your child will develop core analytical skills required to solve global problems
  • Your child will develop thinking skills required to gain admission and scholarship into word-class universities
  • Your child will stand a chance to gain recognition within the global community
  • Your child will develop growth mindset as adopted by innovative companies such as Apple, Amazon, Oracle, Facebook etc.

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.

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

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.

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.

Sense training

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.

Sensorial education

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.
