Children’s Center

After School Care

Our Children’s Center provides a fun, safe, well-supervised program from 3:00pm–5:30 pm, Monday through Friday for any St. Francis Solano School student. For a minimal fee, parents can take advantage of this program at any time during the school year. The children enjoy a variety of supervised activities, a fitness program, as well as a Homework Club for students in grades 1–8. Children will automatically go to the Children’s Center if parents are running late and cannot pick up students right after school. Children’s Center operates as a non-profit entity for the convenience of our parents.
