Music & movement is instrumental for holistic childhood development.

Junior Jive is an authentic South African educational music and movement programme for Pre-schoolers and Foundation phase learners. We don’t only focus on music concepts and music knowledge, we also develop gross motor and fine motor skills, as well as other perceptual skills. The cherry on top is we do all this through creative play and exploration and have a LOT of fun every week.

Women empowerment is instrumental for community development

The Junior Jive classes are presented by teachers who are passionate about your child and about education. As an empowerment company, Junior Jive focuses on providing skills for women to build up their own business in the Early Childhood Education Industry

Our Mission is to educate and empower the lives of

Junior Jive Age Groups


Our Junior Jive Baby Maestros are growing quickly and learn about their environment through their senses. We focus a lot on motor development, sensory activities and emotional well-being in this curriculum. Our Baby Maestros 

Maestros on
the Move

This is our second Junior Jive age group – Maestros on the Move! Once our Maestros on the Move start walking – and running – we focus on different motor skills, including inhibitory control. This age group also tends to become wary of strangers

Mini Maestro


We build our Mini Maestros’ confidence – focusing on all their little successes. We continue to focus on motor development, by making our activities energetic. We also include a lot more language development, as our maestros start communicating more fluently with us. 


Our Master Maestros are gaining confidence in their motor and language abilities and so we focus more on social skills as well as music skills. Our Master Maestros love learning about music composers, and are keen to participate in new learning experiences


At this age, the children are able to concentrate for longer and have a more developed fine motor co-ordination. We therefore focus on learning a specific instrument, like the glockenspiel, recorder or marimbas. Learning to play an  instrument also teaches other skills.
