Grait corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a type of national private business self-regulation that aims to contribute to societal goals of a philanthropic, activist, or charitable nature by engaging in or supporting volunteering or ethically-oriented practices within the Nigerian sphere. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) allows Grait enact several positive changes. Grait choose to do what is right not only for their bottom line but also benefit financially while building trust with parents and students.
Parents and wards feel that when they enroll at Grait they are within the walls of a socially responsible company, they are doing their part. The more socially responsible the school, the more supportive the community and parents become.
Corporate social responsibility helps build trust, raise awareness, and encourage social change. Although there are tens of thousands of companies doing their part, large global corporations’ efforts have far-reaching results that can impact major world issues from hunger and health to global warming. Here are examples of how Grait international schools are doing CSR successfully.
At Grait School, the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework is adopted, which supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. It gives all our teachers a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children. As well as being the core document for our teachers working in the foundation years, the EYFS framework gives parents the confidence that the same statutory commitments and principles will underpin their child’s learning and development experience.
A. UNIQUE CHILD
Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. Our Early Years foundation teachers understand and observe each child’s development and learning, assess individual progress and then use the information to plan for next steps or support the child to develop a positive sense of own identity and culture, while also identifying any need for additional support.

Grait international school(s) students are supported by faculty and staff with outstanding experience and credentials in their fields, as well as a passion for educating young people.
