About God First Children International Schools

As the name denotes, we strongly identify with the claim which says, “With God all things are possible”. This informs our putting God first in all our steps. And we have since not lost direction in our academic exploration right from inception to date instead we are increasingly fortified both in wisdom, knowledge and moral impartation to the children.


The Nursery/Primary School was established in 1990 while the Secondary School came on board in 2008. The Schools at her different levels are co-educational at different locations but less than a kilometer radius distance to each other. The newly restructured Crèche and After School Service Palace taking care of working class parents’ interest which operate from 6.30a.m. to 8.00.p.m. (Monday to Friday except only on government gazetted holidays) on staff shift duty has added colourful attraction to the Nursery and Primary section of the Group of Schools. While the Crèche, Nursery and Primary Schools are located at 32, Yakubu Street, Ikosi-Ketu, the Secondary School is at 66, Aladelola Street (Opp. TVC Gate), Ikosi-Ketu, Lagos. Both are just two minutes drive from the Old Lagos-Ibadan Expressway Toll Gate/CMD Road.
