Welcome to Canton Hill Academy

Your child’s journey of discovery, questioning, experimentation and development begins from the moment they enter the world. Once you have made Canton Hill Academy your school of choice, we will ensure that your child thrives academically, personally, morally and socially. We believe that when it comes to learning, there’s nothing more motivating for young children than success and the celebration of success.

Achievement and recognition build confidence and self-belief, which in turn encourages perseverance and determination. It’s a virtuous circle that really fosters a love of learning and is central to our teaching approach.

We look forward to welcoming your children to Canton Hill Academy and we pledge not to betray the trust you would repose in us by entrusting your child’s education into our care, but to meet all your expectations and more.”

Austin Imangui (School Director)

‘THE PRIMAS’- First among Equals


Our faculty is comprised of 21st Century teachers and administrators who are dedicated and committed to children. They are well- educated in child development, they understand and embrace the value of early education.

They are responsive, receptive, and aware of the needs of early learners, and are eager to cooperate with parents to promote each child’s optimal growth and development.


Our approach of ‘learning through play’ is designated to help children achieve their potential and increase their confidence through a wide variety of experiences. We provide opportunities for personal and social development, from speaking and listening, encouraging goal making, mathematics, improve digital skills, expanding the children’s knowledge and understanding of the world; encouraging them to explore their creativity through music and art; frequent French classes.

Outdoors, the children can learn about gardening at the flowerbed, or make use of the climbing equipment, which is on a soft surface. They play safely and happily in their own area. Whatever the activity, we are constantly interacting with the children to ensure they are able to gain maximum benefit. Sand, water, play dough, puzzles, building blocks, shape sorters, and construction of bricks help the children to develop the concepts of form, shape, size, and textures so that they can learn as they play.


Children learn more in the first five (5) years of their lives than at any other time – and they do this simply by playing. Our primary aim is to work in partnership with parents to develop happy and confident children who are interested in everything they see and hear thus contributing to enquiring minds.


STEAM is an educational discipline that aims to spark an interest and lifelong love of the arts and sciences in children from an early age. Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics are similar fields of study which involve creative processes for inquiry and investigation. Teaching relevant, in-demand skills that will prepare students to become innovators in an ever-evolving world is paramount, not only for the future of the students themselves but for the future of the country.


Pupils develop a scientific curiosity about their environment through hands-on activities. The activities include the scientific processes of observation, inference, classification, measurement, prediction, communication, and space/time relationships.  CANTON HILL ACADEMY’s Science  department  provides  effective  tools  for  real  life explorations.


Particular emphasis is placed on individual learning needs as the pupils develop an understanding of Math “all around them.” Concepts develop through the use of concrete manipulative and “mental math.” Technology provides important tools for the development of graphing, measurement, and computational skills. Primary school students see Math as exciting, valuable, and conquerable.


Naptime is essential for the overall development of the child. At Canton Hill Daycare, peace and comfort are our priorities. #daycare#play#games#admission#gwarinpa#abuja
