Recreation Services are designed to help children develop and integrate gross motor skills, independence and communication skills through a number of different programs.
The following programs are offered by The Centre for Child Development:
- Swim lessons and/or aquatic therapy on a 1-1 basis
- Parent and Tot Swim (guidance provided by recreation staff)
- Swim Team (children with disabilities 10 years and up)
- Adapted Aquatics Orientation/Consultation (recreation staff advise parents/caregivers how to best work with their child in the water)
- School Swim Program (special needs classrooms or individual students in Surrey, Delta or Langley book to swim weekly as part of their individual education plan)
- Youth Fitness Program (for youth aged 13 – 19 years teaching basic skills required for independent use of community fitness facilities)
- Adult Community Drop-In Swim (for adults with physical disabilities who cannot access community pool facilities)
- Community Recreation Referral (consultation with the family to help find appropriate recreation programs and services in the community for their child with disabilities)
Who is eligible for service?
Children and youth, from birth to age 19 who have a developmental disability and who reside in Surrey, White Rock, Delta or Langley.
For some programs space is limited and priority is given to children who are also receiving other services from The Centre.
User fees will be charged for all services. If the fees prevent you from participating please let your Case Coordinator or the Director of Recreation Services know. Alternative arrangements may be available.
