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 Educational Services Ltd was established and registered in February 29th, 2008. Cedars School was formerly opened in September 2010 at Adeniran Ogunsanya Surulere, Lagos and started with two infants in a bungalow space that housed the training centre only at the time. Enrolment later grew to 30 pupils at the centre and the school decided to secure a larger space for a proper school setting in February 2012. The school has since graduated 5 sets of Year 6 pupils who have gone into many secondry schools of their choices and some kids who are abroad. it has indeed been a wonderful journey. We love our work.
The Ministry of Education gave us an approval/Clearance to use the name: The Cedars-World Nursery and Primary School.
