2022-2023 After-School Child Care

West Side Community Services After-School Child Care is open to children enrolled in Buffalo Public and Buffalo charter schools in kindergarten through sixth grade. Our hours of operation are 2:30-5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The program follows the Buffalo Public Schools’ calendar and is closed whenever BPS is closed.

Our program is licensed by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services. Each day that your child attends, they will receive a snack/meal, academic support, physical fitness, and creative enrichment. 

We look forward to helping your child learn, explore, and build friendships during the school year. 

We will update this page when registration for the 2022-2023 after-school program is open. If you have questions in the meantime, please contact us at 716-884-6616 or email
