Day Nursery

 Built in 1961 and situated in Yaba the Day Nursery aims to dramatically improve the academic ability of toddlers by giving them a head start in their education. It delivers the foundation for learning by providing children aged 18 months to 5 years with high quality early childhood education through nurturing preschoolers' curiosity and promoting their social and emotional development in a safe environment.

The Day Nursery is a non-profit school with capacity for 100 children, the school currently has a total number of 85 children. It was set up to serve the needs of women working and trading in the catchment area. It is situated at 69 Murtala Mohammed Way Yaba. It has an assembly hall which can also be used for adult literacy classes and vocational training for female dropouts.

The children build a strong desire to learn which has a long-term impact on their future. In addition to launching the child's path to success in school, we provide parents with a safer alternative to nannies and neighbors, easing the childcare challenges for modern day women whose role is ever evolving.
