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 6. In August, 2023 we launched our Hybrid learning Hub for students in grade 7 - 12. 

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 more teacher directed environment in the primary years. Whilst still maintaining a strong foundation in literacy, numeracy and other academic skills.

Our high school learning hub whist maintaining academic rigor continues to focus on the 21st century skills and entrepreneurship.

Programs at JCM

Cultivate, Nurture, Thrive

We believe that children are born eager to learn, and encourage our students to explore within their environment. We pride ourselves on our dynamic and flexible curriculum. Have a brief a look at our programs now and schedule a visit to one of our schools today.

Little Munchkins

It's about the little things

Short morning sessions for parents and babies & toddlers. 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.



Fostering a growth mindset & embracing curiosity

We accept children from the age of 1. Our bilingual creche program draws its influences from Maria Montessori, Waldorf Steiner 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.



Nurturing creativity, kindness & emotional well-being, whilst embracing diversity.

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

Fostering collaborators and critical thinkers

Around the age of 6 children transition into our international primary school program. Classes are multi-aged and maintain very low teacher child ratios.  The teachers determine what needs to be taught based on international curriculum standards. Each child being catered for in their own individual way.


Cultivating a supportive environment whist building confidence and setting high expectations.

At the completion of Grade 6 children move into our Hybrid Learning Hub. A physical space with onsite educators and learning facilitators where online and distance platforms are utilised to meet academic needs and obtain international high school certifications.


Flexi Time

Protecting family and cultivating community.

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.
