Bala Cynwyd School
for Young Children!

Welcome to the Bala Cynwyd School for Young Children


Bala Cynwyd School for Young Children is proud to be a part of Bala Cynwyd’s rich history. Our stately brick buildings were initially constructed as residential homes in 1895 and were among the first 500 buildings built in Bala Cynwyd.

Bala Cynwyd School for Young Children was founded in 1991. Our campus rests on 1.43 acres and we have 3 classroom buildings, 3 playgrounds, a rain day gym, a fully furnished kitchen, and an in-ground swimming pool that was designed specifically for young children.

We have worked diligently to assemble a team of nurturing educators and our faculty, curriculum, daily programs, and teacher/child ratios all meet or exceed the standards required for:

  • Licensing as a Private Academic School for Nursery and Kindergarten Education by the Pennsylvania Department of Education
  • Licensing by the Department of Human Services as a Child Care Center
  • Accreditation by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children)

Our role is to provide the love, the environment, the information, the freedom, the structure, and the intellectual challenge to help each child strive toward their potential. Our dedication to educating the whole child and our idyllic setting will provide your child an early childhood educational experience they will remember for a lifetime!



From One of Our Happy Parents:

“BCSYC is such an amazing place for children! My child has blossomed so much since starting here in June 2014. She loves coming to school every day. Her teachers are so great. We couldn’t ask for a better place to send our daughter.”
