Business Directory » Schools » Nursery Schools


Cypress Bay Int’l School is a full day multilingual crèche, pre-school and Elementary School for children 6 weeks – 6 years.  We offer the American curriculum, and teach the children in English, French and Spanish.  Our team consists of highly qualified Nigerians and expatriate teachers, with diverse backgrounds and outstanding teaching experiences.

We are truly an international community of students and teachers, with the capacity to grow and expand to the 5th Grade in the near future.

At CBIS we know all children are not the same, and so we pay special attention to identifying the needs of each individual child, and ensuring that their educational program addresses their needs.  We also strive to uphold the highest standards in honesty, integrity and professionalism.  CBIS provides educational services as a prime or as a team member, with our After-School services.  We are committed to successfully meeting and exceeding the expectations of our stakeholders, both in the short term and in the long term.  Our objective is to nurture confident, compassionate world-changers!


We provide an unparalleled service to working parents – we are open from 6.30am to 7.30pm!
We are the first school in Nigeria providing language immersion in English, French and Spanish.  Science shows that young children can learn up to 5 languages at the same time, and can grasp profound concepts at very young ages, that is why we will continue to challenge and inspire the children through the adoption of the robust American curriculum, and multiple languages, including mandarin, and Nigerian languages, which will be introduced in the year 2012.  We will also explore our world locally, and internationally with our children who are 5 years and older, in order to have them fully grounded in the new languages and culture.


We provide periodic local and international training opportunities for our staff.
