Ocean Crest School provides a challenging curriculum for students from Playgroup to Secondary in a supportive and nurturing environment. Our curriculum emphasizes a balance of academics, sports, extra-curricular activities, clubs and embeds music, drama, dance, PE and Languages. The School embraces both the British National Curriculum and Nigerian to prepare students for international and local examinations.
Specialist teachers teach Physical Education (PE), Music, Information Communication Technology (ICT), Arts, Yoruba, French, Home Economics and Library skills, which are all included in the weekly timetable across the whole school. Swimming is included in our sports programme, once parents consent is given for the child to partake in it. Each child is carefully planned for to ensure continuity, personalization and progression.
A major emphasis is the integration of technology into our curriculum, more importantly, our foundation subjects; English Language, Mathematics, Science and ICT. It is our goal to prepare students to apply these skills to be successful with technology in the 21st Century. Our Character Education Program is designed to develop responsible, respectful, selfless and passionate children who value and appreciate one another.
Whole class teaching, group work and project-based learning are all used as methods of learning within our school. Classwork is differentiated either by task or outcome throughout the curriculum to address any learning need of individual children. The classroom teachers keep a record of each individual child’s preferred learning style(s). It is our goal to mentor effective communication both written and oral with all stakeholders and parents; viewed as our partners in education. Our Playgroup, Nursery, Primary and Secondary classes are open for admission to all children. Children are entitled to spend six terms in the Nursery, having it in mind that the child has to be age appropriate at the beginning of a new session.
