Hefshiba school started its operation in early 1984 as a solely Day Care Centre, where Lagos mums confidently leave their new babies knowing that they are in good hands. 

with the success of the day care and the growth of the babies who now have to go into Nursery School, the school metamorphosed into Pre-school and served as a feeder to well established Primary and high Schools.

in 1987, Heshiba was recognised and approved by the Lagos State Government and ever since then the school has maintained its vision, goals and core values which have won her several awards and recognition in the metropolis. 


 In over 32 years of commitment to academic excellence, Hefshiba Schools have remained the trailblazers in Nigeria’s private educational sector. Its academic prowess speaks for itself by the quality of graduates produced; as its pupils stand out among their contemporaries within and outside the shores of Nigeria.

Hefshiba School prides itself on providing high-quality preschool education with daycare amenities and services in a warm nurturing environment. This is because we understand that choosing the right center to fit a child’s need is an important decision, so we strive to meet the expectation of every family we serve.

Our programs are carefully researched and thoughtfully taught and we approach everyday with a sense imagination, innovation, and fun to help young children learn comfortably and confidently. Every curriculum includes a variety of interesting and inspiring activities to stimulate early brain development with focus on creativity.
