Founder's Welcome


Welcome to Les Petits Génies (LPG), a haven of learning, exploration, and growth. Our journey began with a simple yet powerful vision - to create a home away from home, where every child receives the nurturing and encouragement they need to bloom into confident, well-rounded individuals.

Under our gentle tutelage, we have watched timid children transform into young leaders, ready to forge their paths with curiosity and vigour. Our heartfelt approach towards education is rooted in patience, fostering a slow yet steady pace that truly works.

As you walk through our doors, you will feel the warm embrace of the LPG family, a community united in its goal to raise thinkers, dreamers, and doers, it is with immense pride and joy that I invite you to be a part of our vibrant family, where love meets learning every day.

Our Mission

To nurture all our children so that they can enjoy each day and develop a lifelong thirst for knowledge and learning. We understand that every child is unique and must be properly supported to bring out its talent and grow in confidence.

Our Vision

Every modern child should be equipped to live, thrive and compete in the world community.

Our History

Both the school culture and school climate have contributed to forming strong partnerships with families, teachers, students within our community.


The French Ecole opens its doors welcoming children desiring to learn or improve their fluency in the French language. To date, the French Club has developed strong partnerships with local families and schools and as a result, the club has welcomed more than 1,500 children.


Due to the high demand from parents, Mme Lydia expanded the club to open Les Petits Génies, the 1st French bilingual nursery in Lagos. With only 4 pupils aged 2 years old, a new exciting journey began. Equipped with wonderful teachers, colorful classrooms and a lovely playground, Les Petits Génies had all that was needed to start providing excellent teaching and learning and make the school a special happy place for all children to flourish mentally and emotionally.


Les Petits Genies celebrates its first set of graduates at a special event “la première remise de diplôme”. Since then, our Alumni pupils have remained remarkable both locally and internationally.

Why Les Petits Génies?


Nurturing Environment

From the moment your baby is born until their fifth birthday, your child will learn 80% of everything he will ever learn in his entire life! Therefore a good foundation which focuses on nurturing and developing each child as a completely unique individual is most vital.

Holistic Development

We focus on all-rounded growth, nurturing emotional intelligence and social skills, and fostering well-rounded individuals.

Creativity and Innovation

We encourage students to think outside the box, providing them with platforms to explore and express their creative potentials.

Community and Family

We are more than a school; we are a family that works closely with parents and the community to raise a generation of happy, responsible, and outstanding individuals.


We look forward to welcoming your child to our special place.
