Superior Court of California, Fresno County Childrenís Waiting Rooms

A children’s waiting room was the dream of the late Superior Court Judge Mario G. Olmos who believed that there should be a safe, nurturing and protective environment for young children to wait while parents conduct court business.

The rooms are located in the main courthouse and the B.F. Sisk Courthouse facilities. This is a free service for those who have business in the Fresno County Superior Court, including: jurors, defendants, witnesses, litigants and persons filing papers. The children’s waiting rooms are a community outreach project and are operated by the Central Valley Children’s Services Network of Fresno County, an organization with over 30 years of delivering accessible, caring and professional services to all families.

  • The Children’s Waiting Rooms are available to children 6 months and older. Children 13 years of age and older may use the Children’s Waiting Room to assist with supervising younger siblings or as approved by the Site Aide.
  • The Children’s Waiting Rooms are open from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. (closed during the lunch hour), Monday through Friday excluding Court Holidays and Court Closure Days.
  • Children must be picked up no later than noon when the room closes during the lunch hour and immediately upon completion of their business with the Court.
  • Parents must fill out a registration form, provide photo identification issued by a governmental agency and sign and acknowledge receipt of the Children’s Waiting Rooms Parent’s Rules. Registration forms and Parent’s Rules are available in English and Spanish. (English)(Spanish)
  • A child can only be picked up by the Parent(s) or authorized adult(s) on the registration form.
