Our Mother Mary Schools organization is made up of three sections of schools namely:
Crèche, LDC and Nursery, Primary/Basic and the College. The three sections are in different location within one council development Area (CDA). The schools provide solid and sound education to children from all parts of Nigeria and beyond, from the age of 1 to 16years.
Our Mother Mary Schools was founded on 21st September, 1998 (nursery And Primary) section. The college section was established on 20th September 2001.
One great thinker once remarked, ‘whatever one conceives and believes, one achieves’. And by divine providence the school eventually got duly completed in October 2000, after it had started full operation in the year 1998.
The founder of the school Mr Emmaneul Onoche Nkokanma had the Nigerian child in mind before founding the school. To him there are not enough quality and focused private schools around Ejigbo, to fully address the yearning of the school-child. With these at the back of his mind, he set out to put in place the edifice that is known today as OUR MOTHER MARY MONTESSORI SCHOOLS, (Crèche, LDC and Nursery) at 11 Caroline Odu Street, Ejigbo, Lagos State, Nigeria.
Later, the school name changed to Our MOTHER MARY SCHOOLS in 2008, the college section was established at No. 5 Kamoru Adeyemi Street, Ejigbo, Lagos State using a purposely built one- storey building structure.
