Head of School's Address

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Corona Day Nursery Ikoyi, the origin of all Corona schools. Founded in 1955 in a beautiful, secure, ordered and welcoming environment, we continue to lay the foundation for academic excellence as we provide child centred learning for 3-5 year olds.

This is where the development of the whole child starts; this is where children learn at their own pace and love it. Corona Day Nursery, Ikoyi is running with the developmental and creative needs of the children in mind and our curriculum meets all desirable learning outcomes and requirement for pre-schools.

Our classrooms have suitable large spaces and our materials are hands- on which constantly gives pupils the opportunities to construct their own learning experience.

Early years is about developing young children’s language, physical, social and other core skills and helping them find fulfilment in the associated activities. This is what we strive to achieve.

Our classes are active and interactive. We improve opportunities to learn using Montessori materials in the classrooms. These materials arouse the children’s attention, interest and motivation and teaches them independence and concentration. All lessons accommodate different learning styles.

We also develop and encourage vital skills like good habits, thinking skills, generosity, curiosity, positive attitude and traditional values while ensuring that children grow up having good feelings about themselves and others. Our facilities are world class and all the activities are age appropriate.

The large playground, beautiful scenery and ambience greet you as you walk in. This is where your child wants to be, this is the cradle for excellent instruction, rounded education and lifelong learning and the teachers are committed, trained and groomed to follow the process of delivering world-class education. Corona day Nursery Ikoyi represents early year’s education at its best.

This where your child wants to be!
