School History
The School was established in the year 2005 by Mrs. Hannah Royeke Obalade. It was born out of a divine vision to provide holistic Christian tuition which emphasizes a balanced combination of intellectual knowledge and sound moral ethos. The Montessori method of education was specifically adopted with the aim of helping children build a solid educational foundation for life-long learning.

Grande Oakbridge Montessori School opened to the public on Saturday, 6th of August, 2006 with her maiden open house. She was formally declared open by Dn. Adeyinka Obalade, on Saturday, 10th of September, 2005.

The school academic year started on Monday, 12th September, 2005 for the 2005/2006 academic year session with Master Chukwudi Mario Ikwueme as the first creche pupil on the admission list.
