Imaginations School is an offshoot of Imaginations Playstation. It started as a Creche/Playgroup in October 2006 but has now metamorphosed into a school. Imaginations School therefore comprises a Crèche (babies from 6 weeks to 1 year), a Playgroup (children between 1 – 2 years), a Reception Class (children between 2 – 3 years), the Nursery Section (ages 3 – 5) and the Primary Section which started in September 2010. The Reception and Nursery classes make up the Pre-school.
The Crèche, Playgroup and the Pre-school is at No. 3, Association Avenue, Ilupeju, Lagos whilst the Primary section is at 11b, Coker Road, Ilupeju, Lagos. Both buildings are within 2 minutes walk from each other so parents can comfortably have a child in the Pre-school and another in the Primary without any inconvenience at all.
To provide a loving, safe and conducive environment where the child’s potential is developed to the maximum and where mothers feel confident to leave their children because they know it is ‘home away from home.’ Our goal is for every child to leave Imaginations School with a life long love for learning, the skills and ability to collaborate with others and the confidence, courage and compassion to excel in life.
