Therapeutic Recreation

At the Children's Center at the Phoenix, our dedicated Recreation Assistants play a pivotal role in enhancing the well-being of our pediatric residents through a rich tapestry of play, recreation, and leisure activities. Tailored to meet the individual needs and interests of each child, these activities are thoughtfully designed to nurture physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional development.

Diverse and Engaging Activities

Our recreation program is vibrant and diverse, encompassing a wide range of activities that cater to the unique preferences and therapeutic needs of our children. From the gentle companionship of pet therapy to the creative expression found in arts and crafts; from the joy of music to the exploratory world of sensory stimulation; and from the immersive stories in reading sessions to the fun and laughter in games, cooking, and gross motor activities, there's something for every child to enjoy.

Purposeful Play

Each activity is more than just play—it's an opportunity for growth, learning, and healing. Our aim is to enhance the quality of life of our residents, foster greater independence, and, where possible, mitigate the impacts of illness or disability. Whether it's through crafting a piece of art, engaging in a musical journey, or participating in a cooking project, our recreational activities provide meaningful experiences that contribute to the holistic development of our children.

Building Connections

Beyond the individual benefits, our recreation program is a cornerstone for building community and social connections among our residents. It's a space where friendships blossom, where children can share experiences and support one another, and where the joy of childhood is celebrated every day.

In every activity, our focus remains steadfast on providing an environment where our pediatric residents can thrive, discover new passions, and experience the joy and freedom of play in a setting that understands and accommodates their unique needs.
