Recap the science of 30+ games and activities!

thank you to our sponsors

Back to School: The Science of Play could not happen without you and a simple thank you doesn’t convey the tremendous gratitude we have for our sponsors. Our mission is to ensure every young child benefits from a holistic, high-quality early education. We are passionately committed to lead the partnerships, best practices and performance that maximize a child's first 2,000 days. Our community partners and friends are helping us achieve that mission through events and programs that benefit our students, their families, and all who live and work in this community. We invite you to help us foster awareness, compassion, and empowerment that go beyond the boundaries of bureaucracy, economy, and status.

Interested in supporting SSEL events & programs?

SSEL collaborates with individuals and organizations to bring informative and fun events and programs to the South Side community. Thanks to our location within the Reeb Avenue Center, our school is a network of community partners, so we are able to engage a broad expanse of our neighbors. Together we are making Columbus the best place for a child to live, learn and grow.

This year we are offering a series of events. If you are interested in supporting SSEL events and programs as a corporate sponsor, with an in-kind donation, or as a volunteer please complete the interest form. Interested in making a monetary gift? Use the buttons below.
