After-School Programs

After School Programs are offered through Solon Center for the Arts & Solon Parks & Recreation.  Children are bused from Lewis, Parkside and Roxbury Elementary Schools directly to our facilities on Solon School Buses.  PLEASE BE ADVISED of the rules put forth by the Solon Schools for the 2024-2025 school year … Each child is permitted 2 drop off locations, including (1) home & (2) choice of ONE day care.  According to these rules, children will need to pick either SCA or REC as they will NOT be able to bounce back and forth.  Please remember to fill out the OPT-IN BUS FORM the schools require by their designated deadline. AFTER YOU COMPLETE OUR REGISTRATION ON APRIL 27, you must then complete the DAY CARE FORM to indicate which after school program you will be attending. Registering for After School Programs with the City of Solon does not guarantee you space on a Solon School Bus … Parents MUST complete all necessary forms from the schools. Limited space available, register early!


Children will receive a small snack upon arrival to After School, however, parents can pack an additional snack in their book bags if your child tends to need more in the afternoons.  Please send your child with a refillable water bottle.
