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, gender, sexual orientation, economic status, or cultural background of parents or children.

SYC Scholarship Fund

Posted on December 12, 2014 in category SYC Announce

Dear Friends & Family… we appreciate your support of the School for Young Children. SYC is a unique place; we teach and support children in their emotional and social development through play, their primary language.

SYC has a scholarship fund for families who otherwise cannot afford to send their children to preschool. The money we receive comes from your donations and our annual auction. If you are able to donate to help the scholarship fund, please click on the Donate Button below. The full amount of your donation is tax-deducible and will go entirely to the scholarship fund.

With your support, SYC can continue to help children who would not otherwise have the opportunity to discover the joys of learning through play.

Thank you, The SYC Family
