Creating a Love for Learning at Cutler Jewish Day School
Creating a Love for Learning at Cutler Jewish Day School At Cutler Jewish Day School, we believe that education is not just about imparting knowledge, but about instilling a love for learning in our students. For over 32 years, our preschool and elementary school in Columbia, SC has been providing excellent education to newborns through fifth-grade students. We also offer high-quality full-time care for our students, ensuring their well-being and growth. Our mission is simple - to provide an enjoyable and challenging school experience that promotes a desire and love for learning. We understand that each child is unique and has different needs. That's why we believe in educating the "whole child" by meeting their cognitive, social, emotional, creative, and physical needs. By addressing all aspects of their development, we create a nurturing environment where students can thrive. One of the key aspects of our curriculum is the incorporation of critical thinking skills and problem-solving. We believe that these skills are essential for success in the modern world. By encouraging our students to think critically and solve problems, we prepare them for the challenges they will face in their academic and personal lives. At Cutler Jewish Day School, we follow a constructivist approach to learning. This approach emphasizes that children construct knowledge based on their culture and lived experiences. Our teachers plan explorations that incorporate standards, allowing students to learn in a way that is meaningful and relevant to them. By authentically assessing each child, we ensure that their progress is tracked and their individual needs are met. Our slogan, "So Hearts and Minds Can Soar," reflects our commitment to nurturing both the emotional and intellectual growth of our students. We understand that education is not just about academics, but also about fostering a love for learning and a sense of emotional well-being. By creating a supportive and caring environment, we empower our students to reach their full potential. If you are looking for a school that prioritizes the love for learning, then Cutler Jewish Day School is the place for you. Join us in our mission to create a love for learning in every child. Together, we can inspire a lifelong passion for education and help our students soar to new heights.
