About Us

Cove Early Childhood Institution “CECI” (formerly known as The Cove Basic School) was established over 60 years ago as a ministry of  The Thompson Town Baptist Church Women’s Federation. It is located on the beautiful countryside of Thompson Town, Clarendon, Jamaica West Indies. Classes were originally held in the church vestry and were later moved to a small classroom erected on the church compound. Over the years, enrollment has increased significantly creating a need for more classroom space. The facility accommodates 60 children and is staffed by four wonderful teachers and a cook. CECI is accredited by the Jamaica Early Childhood Commission.

Through the generous gift of a friend of a past student, a brand new school has been constructed! We invite you to explore our ongoing progress and see how you can help. To learn more, click here.
