Vital Years Schools, was started in 1985 by Mrs. Barnes, a Briton, as a daycare facility, at No.8, Nagwamatse crescent, Area "A", Ahmadu Bello University, Samaru. It gradually expanded to accommodate kindergarten, and was taken over by Mrs. Johanna A. Alisah (the current proprietress) in 1987. Armed with hard work, integrity, and a strong affinity for excellence, Mrs Alisah did not relent in her effort to make Vital Years Schools a household name. Gradually evolving to include a primary section, it finally opened its permanent site in 2006 at Graceland.

What makes us outstanding is our brand which includes our commitment to excellence, integrity, and hard work. Over the years, this unique selling point has put us above our contemporaries.
