Nurturing The Holistic Child

One of the most important decisions you will ever have to make is choosing the right school for your child. In certain African cultures, the Jackalberry Tree is a symbol of wisdom and respect and it is these ideals that lie at the heart of our school.

At Jackalberry Montessori, we understand how important the foundation stage of learning is and that by cultivating wisdom and respect; we are able to nurture the holistic child - an adult human being, comfortable with himself, with his society, with humanity, as a whole, and who is sufficiently prepared for later learning. We strive to be a home away from home for your child.
