About Us

JIE is a joint project of the Charlotte Jewish Day School, the Charlotte Jewish Preschool, and the Jewish Preschool on Sardis.

The Charlotte Jewish Day School was created to expand Jewish Education K-5th grade. Since 1988, CJDS is the only local day school that provides exemplary general studies and Judaic education in a supportive and rich Jewish environment. Today, CJDS  provides the community with one-of-a-kind Judaic resources and programs that are accessible to everyone. www.cjdschool.org

The Charlotte Jewish Preschool was the first educational institution in Charlotte, growing from the Temple Israel religious school. CJP provides full day and half-day programs in a nurturing environment that offers a whole child/whole family experience, rooted in Jewish traditions, in which children connect to learning, personal development and the community. www.cjpkids.org

In 1986, The Jewish Preschool on Sardis was founded. JPS nourishes and stimulates children through cognitive, social, emotional and physical skills as well as educating children in a creative, supportive, and warm Jewish environment, teaching children to love Jewish life.  www.jpsonsardis.org
