SCPITC is proud to showcase the Cutler Jewish Day School as the first Demonstration Site!

In 2014, after completing intensive SCPITC training and coaching, the Cutler Jewish Day School participated in a competitive process and was selected as the first SCPITC Demonstration Site. CJDS fully embraces the SCPITC approach to responsive, respectful, relationship-based care that supports and encourages children’s overall wellness.

Select CJDS infant and toddler teachers have also earned a mentoring certificate that allows them to serve as a peer mentor to their colleagues and to other infant and toddler teachers in the state.

The SCPITC and CJDS partnership provides opportunities for early care and education students, professionals, parents, families, and policy makers to see SCPITC in action.

We invite you to visit us and learn more!

“Cutler Jewish Day School provides the kind of nurturing environment that helps children develop into self-assured, inquisitive, caring citizens. As the first SCPITC Demonstration Site, they can help show others what this kind of care looks like in action.”

–Kerrie Schnake, Director, SCPITC
