Fun For ALL!

The Redwood City Parks and Recreation Department is committed to providing recreation opportunities that are inclusive and meet the needs of children of all abilities.  This summer we are starting an inclusive recreation program called Fun for All that will comprise two classes that are designed to include children who have special needs as well as typically developing children.  These classes will include participants ages 4-14.

These two new pilot programs are administered by Redwood City Parks, Recreation & Community Services Department and are held at the Veterans Memorial Senior Center located at 1455 Madison Ave. in Redwood City. 

Food and Fun!

This class is hands on fun, engaging all the senses as we explore the smells, taste, touch, and sight of our foods.  Students are exposed to some simple information about the science and sources of food and basic cooking terms and techniques. Each class will include songs, stories, and delicious vegetarian, kid-friendly, easy-to-make recipe from a different part of the world. In the class, our chefs travel the world learning about food we will be exploring, preparing, and eating!  All ingredients will be fresh, healthful and nut free. 

This is an inclusive class for students of all abilities ages 4-16 (siblings and friends welcome!)
Students needing support in class should be accompanied by a parent/caregiver or 1:1 aide.
Age exceptions with instructor approval.
