As our children come from diverse cultural backgrounds, we try to reflect this in our curriculum. We provide the best elements of International Education within a traditional Nigerian framework deeply rooted in global education practices. We prepare young people for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of adulthood. We offer a holistic, broad, stimulating, and balanced curriculum (Nigerian and British) that enables children to develop creativity, critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, and independence.
The decision to bring your child to school should have benefits for all concerned.
Information about your child’s welfare when you are not with them is therefore very important. At Canton Hill Academy, we take our roles as the custodian of your child very seriously.
Planned activities and menus provide you with part of the picture. Your child’s key worker will provide you with details of your child’s individual responses during the day. We will also complete a variety of formal and informal reports that will serve as feedback to you.
This constant dialogue along with opportunities to attend informative evenings focusing on care and education are all part of the package we offer you. Being informed enables you and your child to make the very best of our services.
We provide appropriate toys and equipment to allow children to make choices and we train our staff in presentational skills so that rooms are laid out in a stimulating way.
We make our children feel valued and loved whilst enhancing their self-esteem, fostering their ability to be independent, and taking time to reinforce skills regularly so that every child responds at their own pace, and consolidates learning. This is the cornerstone of our philosophy at Canton Hill Academy.
When the time comes for toilet training, we take your lead from you, using positive reinforcement to guide your child through this important stage of his / her further development.
