OBJECTIVES
Kids Corner is a recreation program with classes for 3 and 4 year old children. The main objective is to strengthen a child's self-image and feelings of competence. Children are encouraged to creatively explore the world around them through arts and crafts, music and rhythms, field trips, storytelling, and many other learning experiences.

CHILDREN'S PROGRAM
The staff provides a developmental program for your child in a recreational setting. Kids Corner activities are age appropriate. We do not provide an academic program. We offer music, stories, art, indoor-outdoor play and language development. Social skills are most important. Play is a child's work. Children are encouraged to play. Our play yard has been designed for safety as well as fun.

Located in Darrell Essex Park

ELIGIBILITY
A child must be the appropriate age for each class, 3 or 4 years old, by the date set forth by the California Department of Education. Children who have reached their 6th birthday or are in Kindergarten are not eligible for our program.

Each child must be toilet trained.
