Recreation is essential to a child’s development. At the SBFDC, we strive to provide a safe space for children to play. The health of children is intertwined with their ability to have space and time for recreation.

As Fred Rogers said, “Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”

Boys and Girls Club of Greater Houston
