Graceland - educating the total man

Graceland Primary

Graceland Montessori primary School blends the Nigerian-British curriculum to
impart knowledge on our children, with a passion to build excellent pupils of learning
and Character with the Fear of God and discipline in Academics. 

Graceland Montessori Nursery and Primary School admits Children between the
ages of 2+ years to 10 + years into the school.
We use an integration of the Nigerian, British and Montessori Curriculum. This is
adopted for a balanced, broad-based curriculum that encourages children to be
academically inquisitive and to take responsibility and initiative as they move into the
more structured phase of their schooling.
 
At Graceland, We develop the total Child. With, a solid Christian and academic
foundation laid in the Pre-School years, this is a stage where children are ready for
abstract thoughts which lead to mastering abstract concepts.
The Children at Graceland Montessori School are encouraged to explore,
challenged to learn core skills and guided to be proficient in oral reading, etiquette,
Music, written communication and acquire competence with numbers.
 
When children are prepared to move beyond the Pre-School classroom, we provide
a more structured approach and begin to facilitate a successful, transition to
elementary school. At Graceland Montessori Nursery and Primary school, our
children are taught to express themselves and to self – teach by researching and
asking relevant questions. Through research and questions, they are able to share
an abundance of knowledge with each other. The Children's physical, emotional and
social skills are developed.
 
The Primary school consists of 6-year groups, divided into two:
Lower Elementary (Transition – 2)
Upper Elementary (Primary 3 – 5 ).

Subjects taught in the Elementary include:
 Mathematics

 English Language
 Science
 Social Studies
