rEcess provides a safe place for children with special needs; one that allows them to be around others like themselves. It is a day crafted for them, not merely accommodating them. rEcess also allows siblings to join in on the fun and gives them opportunity to meet other children. For the parents, this day exists to provide a place to connect with families like their own and build a loving community around them. The program also allows parents some time off so they can do whatever they want or need to do. 


10AM - 2PM

Every third Saturday of the month

Kidz Spot (1403 E. Lambert Road, Suite D, La Habra, CA 90631)
