2021-2022 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 grades Kindergarten through 6. Our hours of operation are 2:30 PM – 5:30 PM, Monday through Friday.

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 this school year.
