About Primary

Welcome to Valentina Montessori and primary School, a co-educational primary school on Lanre Awolokun, Gbagada Phase II Lagos.Valentina Montessori and Primary School aims by thorough and stimulating teaching to give its pupils a sound and wide-ranging education in a pleasant, lively and homely atmosphere so that when they leave us they are well prepared for the next stage of their schooling.

The classes are small and we are careful to ensure that each child receives the attention and the level of teaching they need in order to make progress, so that they can take pride in their developing, understanding and in their ability to express themselves effectively both in speech and writing while learning to be patient and persistent in the face of difficulties.

Our pupils encounter a wide range of disciplines in Sport, Art, Music, Drama and Computing as well as in aspects of Science and History so that they can develop their own particular talents and interests. French is taught throughout the School. In addition there are optional Clubs in Swimming, Taekwondo, Hip-Hop, Ballet, Art, Chess and Book Club.

The children enjoy presenting the results of their own research into their class’s termly study topic.

In developing and expressing their own tastes and abilities, our pupils are encouraged to respect and appreciate the talents and tastes of others and the School’s buoyant atmosphere is founded on the children’s mutual respect and on the appreciation of their developing, understanding and competence.
