About JCM

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” - Albert Einstein

Initially Jardim das Criancas de Maputo was an Early Childhood Facility in Maputo. It catered for children from the age of 1 to 5. Over the years we have expanded to open a Primary School catering until grade 7. We believe in learning through play and letting the child determine the learning at their pace. Our play based program in the early years leads gradually into a student directed environment in the primary years. Whilst still maintaining a strong foundation in literacy, numeracy and other academic skills.

Learn, Play, and Engage


We accept children from the age of 1. Our bilingual creche program draws its influences from Montessori, Waldorf and Reggio Emelia approaches in early childhood education. Focusing on developing the whole child. Always putting the child and their needs at the centre of everything we do.



Following on from the creche program our bilingual pre-school program is also play based and draws its influences from the founders of child centered education. Catering for children from 3-6 years old they start to develop early mathematical  and literacy concepts as well as their physical, social, emotional, and cognitive selves. We actively work to develop the whole child.


Primary School

Around the age of 6 children transition into our international primary school program. Classes are multi-aged and grouped by 6-9 years and 9-12 years. The classes are run democratically with students having a say in how the classroom is managed. The teachers determine what needs to be taught based on curriculum standards and the students determine how they are learning.


Little Munchkins

Short afternoon sessions for parents and bubs. Children from 6 months to 2 years of age. A time for parents to connect with other parents and for babies to play. JCM provides the space and the provocations.


Flexi Time

Full time schooling isn't for everyone. We allow families to choose a part time option and place no mandatory number of days to attend. We firmly believe every child is different and every family is different. This is our way of catering to different family needs.

“Play is often talked about as if it is a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning”
