Early Childhood Development School & Training Centre

We are constructing a 240 square meters Early Childhood Development (ECD) building that serves multiple purposes. Through our partnership with Judea Hope, an esteemed training provider, ECD teachers will have the opportunity to earn formal qualifications.                              

Matter Hub

Jamf and MATTER have joined forces to establish the MATTER Innovation Hub. This collaborative partnership harnesses cutting-edge technology to foster active learning, problem solving, and creativity in a student-centered environment.
