Special Care Services (formerly Recreation Program) is an after-school socialization resource for participants with developmental disabilities between the ages of 5 and 25 years of age. Our Program is designed to work with the child's strengths to develop acceptable behaviors for success in the home, at school and in the community.
The Program operates at the spacious Stein Education Center school campus in central San Diego. We are fully licensed by Community Care Licensing, State of California.
Services are leisure time activities, recreation and socialization skill development that are appropriate to the person's age and functioning level.
Activities include arts and crafts, table games, music, field trips, adapted physical education and therapeutic horseback riding (equestrian).
Hours of Operation
The Program operates Monday through Friday. Hours span from 1:30 PM to 6:30 PM and all day on non-school operational days.
Contact Director Chayo Chavez to learn more about expanded hours and school holiday services.
