We welcome you to our unique school. We are happy you chose to come to Cedars. Welcome to a fulfilling experience. Welcome to a unique lifestyle that will prepare you and your child for a lifetime of happiness and dreams come true. Cedars School is a Christian Montessori school that offers high quality educational services to individuals, families and institutions. We believe that every child matters and deserves the best. We do not reject any child based on race, nationality or creed though we usually prefer to clarify goals and values to avoid conflict of interests.

To us, Education is the means by which we come to know and appreciate the world. Learning is not a luxury; it’s a necessity and a powerful tool for kingdom and nation transformation for good in this world. It’s a tool we should use-and share-during every stage of life. One sure benefit of education is that when we experience the joy of learning, we want to continue to enjoy it. “Education begins from birth and is an aid to life,” we agree with Dr. Maria Montessori.

We believe that parents are the first educators of their children and we regard ourselves as partners with you in the education of your child. We appreciate your entrusting your child to our care and we believe the best way to learn more about us is by scheduling an appointment with us for in-depth discussions.

Cedars … a place to be!

Lilian N. Akuma

Director of Programme


Cedars was established in February 2008 and started as an education Training centre. The children’ school was founded in September 2010 in accordance with a vivid conviction to reveal God through education with the following scriptures serving as a guide: Psalms 78 vs 2-7, “That the generation to come might know them. The children who would be born, that they may arise and declare them to their children, that they may set their hope in God, And not forget the works of God. But keep His commandments.” Colossians 1 vs 17…In Christ all things consist and Zephaniah 3 vs 14-20. God is set to make Cedars a name and a praise among all people of the earth.

Cedars has become a place to be indeed! From the time you enter the premises of Cedars, you can feel why it is the place for your child. The presence of God with us is our major ace. Then, the caring adult, well experienced staff and a well prepared environment.

Cedars school is the vision of God given to Mrs. Lilian Nnenna Akuma way back in 1992 when she became convinced that running a school is a calling God wants to prepare her for in life.

CEDARS is indeed a place to be!!!





“Adults admire their environment; they can remember it and think about it—but a child absorbs it. The things he sees are not just remembered; they form part of his soul. He incarnates in himself all in the world about him that his eyes see and his ears hear.” – Dr. Maria Montessori Educator, physician, philosopher

At Cedars School, the curriculum for this group involves every experience the child is exposed to throughout the day. For example, diaper changes, eating time and play periods are perfect opportunities for language development-talking to the child and telling him what is happening and letting the child know that this is not a hurried or rushed experience and that they are valued and precious individuals.



The elementary school child occupies what Maria Montessori called the “second plane of development.” Children at this stage are in a period of rapid intellectual growth as they develop the ability for rational thinking. Children want to know the how and why of things.
