About SYC . . .

School for Young Children Welcome to the website of the School for Young Children in Columbus, Ohio. Our program was founded in 1969 as a part-time preschool program.  Our philosophy has remained consistent through the years; that children be allowed to develop at their own pace in an atmosphere of free play enriched with a variety of creative materials and the support of teachers who respect them as individuals.

As a community outreach program of the First Unitarian Universalist Church, we are a welcoming school--we do not discriminate upon the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, economic status, or cultural background of parents or children.

SYC 2014-15 Enrollment News

Posted on February 21, 2014 in category SYC Announce

We are suspending the acceptance of new applications for enrollment of children into our 2014-15 school year program at this time.  We presently have many more applicants than we can place next year.  While we are gratified that so many people are interested in our program, unfortunately we cannot accept more applicants at this time.

We will consider reopening enrollment for any classes with significantly shorter waitlists and announce any changes about this on this website.
