    Dear Nigerians,
    He’s starting school at age 4. Why do we send babies to school over here?
    I rest my case.

      It’s all to do with a naming convention and being pedantic. He’s been to nursery (nursery school as we call it. In the UK it’s just called nursery) already and is now in school (school school. LOL!) – Year 0/Reception.

      Pre-school, nursery, kindergarten, reception, year 0, creche, play group, FS2/Foundation Second Year etc are all learning spaces = schools.

      To answer your question – working parents, not wanting to leave their kids with domestic staff even grandparents, early learning, socialising and many more reasons the parents may want.

      Apart from the fact that there’s no Work-life balance in Nigeria, the education system abroad isn’t the same with that in Nigeria. Here, your child will be rejected if you bring him for registration too early. Kindergaten is from Age 4. Grade 1 is from age 6. And if you have the money also, you can register your babies in Privately owned creche’s. The Govt doesn’t support or allow any Schools running crèche’s, because the Govt allows you have up to 3yrs paid maternity leave to stay at home and take care or home-school ur babies.

      Abeg Ottawa Queen which country are you in that the Govt allows you have up to 3yrs paid maternity leave to stay at home???????

      @Tope, yes!! Its Ontario Province, Canada. You have a choice of having between 6 months to 3yrs paid mat leave. For me, I put in for 1year maternity leave and I’m currently being paid every month for that through the EI scheme by Service Ontario. I have many friends who took 2 or 3yrs maternity leave from work and are still receiving their child benefits. You can do ur research on that. Sounds too good to be true right? ?

      But he went to pre-nursery school prior, right? What do I know.
      Anyway, have those of in Miami in your prayers, especially people like me that plan to ride out the storm. Irma is coming straight towards us.

      ????our environment isn’t in favour of women at all. Some women are the breadwinner of their families therefore no choice but creche ya

    Those cheeks. Adorable.

    The poor kid is in for a shock though. He is about to learn that it is not normal to be a prince and he is the only one in the class that has photographers following him around.

    So young but he is already being groomed for the throne.

    See the resolute tilt to his chin – “I will not cry, I’m a Prince, I will not cry!” –

    @ Wale Vintage, why do you want to ‘ride’ the storm? Is it really worth it? You’ve been asked to evacuate, what other persuasion do you need?
