Diamond Hills Montessori School is a warm and welcoming place where children feel loved, cared and are comfortable enough to take risks and being able to learn at their own pace.
We adopt the Universal Basic Education (UBE) and the British Curriculum for both the Nursery and Primary classes to maximize learning potential. The Nigeria Curriculum proffers a range of topics for each stage; we teach these topics using UK based learning materials.
The school adopts the concept that specifies the expected academic proficiency of children from early years (2-5) to key stage (6-10 years) on ward.
