Jacobs Well Schools, Early Childhood Development Centers and the Skills Academy are owned by Jacobs Well Village NPC, a Non-Governmental Organization that was established in 2008 by Pierre and Anke du Toit.

Our Vision: Reclaim the future one child at a time

We believe that we can only fully reclaim the future when we teach, develop, love, nurture, not just feed; if we give as much as would give to our very own, we will see great things: We will see the rise of leaders, athletes, artisans, presidents, preachers, teachers, nurses and more.

The role of parents

True education takes place constantly, regardless of time or place for children learn by what they live. General knowledge, behaviour patterns, respect, gratefulness, orderliness and discipline of the child are the responsibilities of the parent, not the education system. Jacobs Well Schools will endorse and support all of the above while a learner is on our premises. When a learner transgresses Jacobs Well Schools’ code of conduct, we expect the parent to endorse and support us.

We undertake to communicate openly regarding problems experienced by learners. Our teachers and mentors are dedicated and experienced youth workers who have helped many children and their parents. Should a parent have a problem with the mentors of Jacobs Well Schools, we value the same open discussion.
