The IUPUI Center for Young Children (CYC), located on campus in downtown Indianapolis, provides childcare and early childhood education for the University and Indianapolis communities. We believe children learn through play, hands-on activities, experiences and interaction with their environment. In fact, research has shown that all children are innately curious and eager to explore the world around them. At CYC, we provide a setting in which children can wonder, solve, learn and grow and we strive to amplify the potential of all children within our care through the guidance and encouragement of experienced and professional teachers. The overall objective of our curriculum design is to promote independence, self-esteem, confidence, and critical thinking skills providing the foundations for continued intellectual and academic growth. This has been our mission and purpose since 1979. Though we have evolved since then, we remain resolute in our mission to provide the best care and early childhood education for IUPUI and the Indianapolis community.
