Before & After School

Before & After School Care

Kids need a safe place to learn, grow, and have fun after school.

An increasing number of young people are left unsupervised both when school lets out and during summer months which could have dangerous consequences for many Chicago youth. That’s why Marillac St. Vincent has invested resources into building robust programming for school-age kids.

Our school-age program is licensed by the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS). The program is year-round, Monday-Friday 7:00 AM-6:00 PM. The program is before school and after school during the school year, with full-day care when schools are closed. During the summer, kids automatically transition into our full-day summer camp.

Enrollment is easy! Our onsite admissions specialists will guide you through every step of the process, and help orient you and your child to the program.
