It became necessary to start a Nursery section in the staff school, when the ULWS which was the feeder Nursery to staff School, started their own primary school and stopped sending their Nursery graduands to Staff School.
The Staff school nursery section was therefore established in September 2008. It started with 8 kids and now has a population of 486 children. Due to the rate at which the Nursery is growing, a separate building is being constructed to accommodate the nursery section. Hopefully the building would be ready for use in September 2014. Due to popular request, a nursery section was also added at the LUTH-Idi Araba annexe of the School in September 2010.
The provisional Council of the University of Lagos made a request to the federal Ministry of Education in 1966 to start a primary school for the children of staff of the University.
