Royal Smart Kids School started as a Creche, Playgroup and Preparatory school in October 2011 to provide a home away from home environment for babies and infants whose parents have to complement the household in financing the family’s budget. The concept and start up was the idea of a medical doctor whose passion and love for children and being a working mother/grandmother herself understood the need for a place where quality and dedicated care will be provided for babies and children while their parents are at work.
Royal Smart Kids School has been designed to provide an unparalleled child and day care service within the environment and that was why from inception such services as Monthly Paediatrician’s visit and Consultation to monitor babies growth along right developmental milestones were introduced .
The Creche and day care services has steadily grown over the years with many of our children doing well at interviews to Nursery and Primary classes in Prime Schools within the area. This along with the request and desire of parents to have their children continue at Royal Smart Kids gave the needed impetus to start the Primary Section of the school in September 2015 .
The School has a well packaged curriculum that boasts of a blend of Nigerian,British and American curriculum with Montessori technique and applications. This becomes necessary in view of our desire to provide world class education for our children .
To be a one stop center for Nurturing, Grooming and providing solid education background for future leaders .
To create an enabling environment where adequate and appropriate learning techniques are used to prepare children for future educational challenges .
To deliver world class education to children and also inculcate high moral and ethical values in them as we prepare them for a life of service and fulfilment.

WELCOME TO NURSERY 2
NURSERY 2 CURRICULUM
A home away from home, where we breed “rare gems”
The age range is between 4 -5 years.
Our instructional program focuses on the development of the whole child with emphasis on his or her unique strengths and needs. Hence our curriculum is so designed to provide individualized development program for each child based on his or her individual developmental rate of intellectual growth.
In Numeracy we teach students to sum up numbers using critical thinking, solve subtraction problems, multiplication, division, fraction, ordinal numbers and lots more.
We believe learning should be fun.
THE ACADEMIC PROGRAMME
Our first priority in the nurseries is to provide a friendly, relaxed atmosphere combined with a sense of order and security. Once children feel at home in the classroom environment and also understand acceptable behaviour, the purpose of acquiring necessary skills and concepts can begin.
By the end of their two-year period in the nursery, many children would have already learned to read. They would have learnt to recognise and spell common words and read them in sentences and learnt to use books for enjoyment and reference. They would have begun to write simple stories by themselves and developed a good understanding of numbers and shapes.
MONTESSORI TEACHING METHODS
The Montessori teaching methods are used freely in all our early year learning period with the teachers taking the children through Sensorial, Tactile ,Practical life as well as Geography and Mathematics in addition to our other established curicullum.
At Royal Smart Kids School we believe in the importance of exchange of information to update parents on the daily activities of their children and for that purpose we have the communication book which serves as a daily exchange information tool between parents and teachers . We appreciate comments and observation from our parents .
