This Little Light After-School Arts Program


An After-School Program that Nurtures Your Childs Creative Side

  •  We provide Hand on Experiences in the Arts!
  • This Little Light provides high quality care with a bonus: local artists come in for one or two 10-week sessions and teach weekly “hands-on” classes in drama, music, dance, and/or drumming.
  • There is also an art teacher on the staff providing daily experiences in the visual arts.
  • The program is committed to developing the “whole child” through the arts, and works to nurture the spiritual self within each child.


  • The program is also committed to multiculturalism in every aspect, from staffing, to artists and art forms, and to the children enrolled. We explore the rich ethnic and cultural diversity of Buffalo’s West Side, and bring our children together with fun and cooperation.
