Testimonials

Ikoyi Nursery School has provided our daughter with an abundance of confidence and a strong foundation for her to build upon in Reception Class. We will greatly miss being part of the INS family!

Ikoyi Nursery School has been a truly wonderful environment for our child to develop. The staff are supportive, focused and teach through a great sense of fun. The Nursery has exceeded our expectations in developing an ever more confident, able and happy person.

I can truly say that Ikoyi Nursery School is like an extension of my family home! My older sister came here in the late 1950s and she testifies to the fact that the school has given her a strong foundation. Her three daughters (the oldest of which is 27) all came to the school. My younger sister’s 14-year old daughter was also a pupil at the school so when I was looking for a nursery school for my then two and a half year old daughter, it was natural that the school was the first one I thought about.

One remarkable thing about the school is its ability to retain its character from its inception almost 60 years ago! The staff have become part of its history – many of the teachers as well as the security gate-men have been in the school for well over 20 years. The classes have retained their small size such that the children get a true sense of belonging. There is a strong sense of preparation – the children are taught a healthy mix of academics and life skills which prepares them for their future. You need only come in here to see how happy the children are and how strong the bond is among the school community. I wholeheartedly recommend this School to parents and guardians who are seeking for a home away from home where your children will be taught in a morally strong, safe, secure environment.

Ikoyi Nursery School provides a wonderful learning environment, rich with useful content that is fun. The “learning through play” model is an excellent approach to develop smart, happy and balanced children. I have greatly enjoyed the parent-led management system which fosters parental involvement in the school and reinforces the quality and relevance of the schools programming.
