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 Closed Wednesday, January 29

Posted on January 28, 2014 in category SYC Announce

Once again, in accordance with our policy to close when Columbus Public Schools close for weather conditions, there will be no classes at SYC tomorrow, January 29.
This closing will put our MWF 3’s and our MWF 4’s one day over their calamity day limit.  Teachers will let you know about arrangements to make up that class day.  All other SYC classes have now had their maximum number of calamity days, so any additional missed classes will be made up.
More details about this will follow when we are back in session.

The water is back on in our building.  So unless something changes again, we will have our PM 4/5’s class today.  We ask that parents of children in that class check their email before leaving home just in case the water is shut off again.  We will e-mail immediately if this changes.

SYC morning classes are cancelled today because there is no water in the building. We’ll let afternoon parents know as soon as we know whether water service will be restored by class start time.
