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.

The easiest way to reach someone over the summer is by e-mail, we check that daily.  Our e-mail address is syc@syccolumbus.org. Your other option is leave a message on our office voicemail at 614-267-0254

2019-20 School Year Lottery Results

Posted on February 17, 2019 in category From the Office

Below you will find the lottery results for the 2019-20 school year. Children were enrolled using priority levels and a computer-generated random lottery number to determine enrollment order. Please keep in mind that these results are preliminary. Although each year is different, we usually have a good deal of waitlist movement between February and the beginning of the school year in September. We are continuing to accept applications for the 2019-20 school year.  Enrollment materials can be found here.
