About Us

The Jewish Community Day School of Rhode Island is a joyful place for children to learn and grow. We recognize the awesome responsibility we have not just to educate our students, but also to be guardians of their childhood. In addition to teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic, we also encourage curiosity and creativity, develop responsibility and character, and provide ample opportunities for exploration and play.

In other words, we don’t just teach the 3 R’s; we also foster the 7 C’s:

  • Critical Thinking
  • Collaborative learning
  • Community
  • Compassion
  • Character
  • Continuity
  • Communication

At JCDSRI, we honor children by challenging them. We give them structure and offer them the freedom to experiment and take risks. We support both their individuality and the role they play as members of a vibrant community.
