Jewish Community Center

At Columbus Jewish Day School, we exist to strengthen the Jewish community and the world by helping to develop thinking, feeling, centered, whole people. We do it by providing a rigorous academic experience. We do it by helping children discover their authentic selves and their value in the world. We do it by combining intellectual, spiritual, and emotional understanding with social responsibility – and making our history relevant to our present and our future.

As a Center of Jewish learning, the JCC Early Childhood Learning Community (ECLC) provides a comprehensive education for young children in a warm Jewish setting. We nourish a child’s natural curiosity and excitement while allowing each child to develop at his/her own pace. You can be confident that we will provide all the loving, enriching attention you want for your child.

Ours is a world of joy, creativity, critical thinking, and self-discovery. An environment where every child, every question, and every opinion has value, and each is treated with dignity and respect. We’d love to participate in the story of your child’s creation.

We promise to give your child the foundation that he or she needs to add real value to relationships, life, and the world.
