Quality child education got a boost on the 12th day of January 1998. It was the day that MIND BUILDER SCHOOL opened its door to the discerning public, particularly to parents that place value on and are willing to invest in premium education for their children.
From a humble beginning of Eighteen (18) pupils and six (6) teaching staff, the school with a vision of building the children of tomorrow’s challenge today, by the grace of God has over seven hundred (700) pupils. The school has its nursery section, consisting of 12 class rooms, located at plot 219, Lola Holloway Street, Omole Phase 1, while the primary section, consisting of eighteen classrooms, is located at plot 175 of the same street. Since commencement in 1998, the school has produced several set of graduates who are now in reputable schools, colleges and Universities in Nigeria and abroad.
In fulfillment of the dreams of the founders of the school, and in compliance with the Federal Government policy on education, a purpose-built 40 classroom blocks to accommodate Nursery, Primary and High School has been constructed. It is located at Plot 4, Otunba Jobi Fele Way, Ikeja Central Business District, Alausa-Ikeja Lagos. The new building which was opened in July 2008 consist of Multi Purpose Hall, Well stocked Library, Classrooms, Basic Science Laboratory, Home Economics Laboratory, special rooms for music, Fine Art and Business Studies.
The school environment offers more than the usual memories of school enthusiasm but team work and friendship as well as innate respect for all that are genuinely intellectual. We aim to create a disciplined environment where effective teaching and learning can take place. A key feature being proposed will be to involve students in decision making process through Student Representative Council.
We place much value on the partnership between the home and the school to help student enjoy their childhood and develop into responsible young adults. For this reason, we have to decide to operate a Day Secondary School for now.
It is our prayer that God will provide us with the enablement to lay a solid educational foundation for our students to pursue worthwhile future careers.
You are welcome to Mind Builders Nursery School. A home away from home and where learning is fun.
Admission starts with purchase of admission forms which could be downloaded from our website in April and the interview is in second Saturday of June yearly. Pupils are admitted into classes according to their ages and performance.
At the nursery classes, we involve the pupils in activities that encourage pupils to be independent and initiate interaction with others. We make the pupils approach new experiences with confidence and be sensitive to the need, view and feelings of other people while in different social situation.

The reception and Nursery Sections are to affect a smooth transition of children from home to school and are preparatory classes for young children tailored for the peculiar need of that age bracket.
Major Objective of the Nursery School
To produce pupils with solid foundation for primary school and to develop in them excellent attitude to learning.
Each classroom has a bathroom en suite, air-conditioned, and spacious with colourful and comfortable chairs and tables. Playgroup class has a bed per pupil with duvet and pillows to make them comfortable while sleeping. Playgroup and Reception classes have Video and TV with DSTV facility.
The importance of play in early years cannot be over emphasized. Therefore our playground is equipped with garden toys such as climbing frames, playhouse, worming, swings, slides, toy cars, bicycles etc. These are provided to develop the pupils’ gross motor skills.
Reading culture is inculcated into the pupils as early as possible. This activity starts with picture reading in the library then to proper reading of children story books and comics. The library is also well stocked with electronics learning materials such as V Tech products for early introduction to ICT.
While swimming and ballet clubs are optional, literary and practical life classes are compulsory. Activities such as drama, dancing and story telling take place in literary class while all forms of activities in our day to day life take place in practical life class.
Everybody eats in the school. We encourage the parents to ensure that their children come to school with at least a glass of milk or cereal since children do not have large appetite early in the morning. The school food otherwise known as mid day meal comes at a time when the children are really ready to eat.
It is not automatic for a child to be promoted to the next class. He or she has to merit it. However, there are series of assessments in the Nursery. We have some daily, weekly and termly. The result of each assessment assists us to diagnose early enough any problem that may need quick intervention. We always involve the parents in our activities through the daily homework.
Parents are allowed to visit the school twice in a term to check the academic performance of their children. The first visit is at the end of mid term test while the second is at the end of the term. During the visit Parents are free to discuss with teachers anything that concerns their children.
