Beyond the School Day

Before and After School Care

Because we know your day doesn’t always start and stop when the school bell rings, we offer childcare through The Horizon Center before and after-school to students enrolled in Marin Horizon School in primary through grade 8. A study hall for grades 4-8 is part of the Horizon Center program. The hours of care are 7:30 am to 8:30 am and 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm and day care is also available during most vacations from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm. For more information on the Horizon Center, including rates and plans, please contact Charlie Denby at 415.388.8408, ext. 263.
