LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
Children learn through play and families grow closer by spending time together. Lancaster Rec offers plenty of recreation and learning opportunities for children and families, from hiking outdoors, to decorating cookies, to enjoying after school family nights.
Our goal is to provide a safe and enriching environment for children to learn and grow through recreation. Our family programs give parents the chance to participate with their children, rather than simply watching from the sidelines as their children have fun. We know that children whose parents are actively involved in their lives will grow up to be happier, healthier adults.
Our staff is carefully chosen and trained. FBI and state police criminal background clearances, child abuse registry clearances, first aid and fire safety training, and physicals are mandatory. Program directors have bachelor's degrees, with at least 30 credits in education. All staff members are required to attend 24 credit hours of professional development each year.
