Roots Garden School is a Creche, preschool and after school located in Opebi, Lagos, Nigeria and was founded on July 16, 2018. The school offers a combination of the Montessori and Nigerian Curriculum. While we primarily focus on the application of the Montessori curriculum we also ensure the full incorporation of the Nigerian curriculum and Nigerian culture.
At Roots Garden School, the Montessori Foundation enables children to discover and develop critical capabilities. This is at a stage when they are particularly receptive.
The Montessori method recognizes that children are natural learners. They move through sensitive periods when their ability to grasp new concepts and develop new capabilities is intensified.
We foster a love of learning through fundamental respect for every child’s natural capacity and growth. Additionally, we achieve this while encouraging concentration, initiative and independence. Finally, we support every child’s ability to make good choices and exercise self-discipline.
A Montessori start sets children up for success in upper school. Furthermore, this is where their independence, self-control and thirst for learning steer them through an educational environment rich with increasingly abstract and complex challenges.
Roots Garden School offers both a Montessori and Nigerian Curriculum.
