For $25 you get one full month of fun for your little guy, every Tuesday come into the air conditioned gymnasium and have them learn basic gymnastic movements as well as enjoying some quality time with your child. Then on Thursdays they will be in the arts & crafts room doing seasonal or educational projects that will stimulate the mind. We will kick this off in July, space is limited so sign up by clicking on the link here.

Plan a night out with your friends on the 3rd Friday of the month and leave the kids with us. Our Parents Night  Out will allow you to go out for a night on the town feeling confident that your little ones are safe and having the time of their lives. Parents can drop their kids off at 5:00 p.m. and pick their kids up before 9:00 p.m. While parents are out having their fun, the kids will be having fun doing arts and crafts, games, sports, and watching a G or PG-rated movie. Even dinner, drinks and snacks are included. Children must be potty trained and from 4 to 13 years old. Click on the link to register for this program.

History of the Center

The Rancho Bernardo Recreation Center was built in 1995. In January 2002, the center's name was changed to add Stuart Glassman's name. Glassman, who died in 2001, was a dedicated volunteer who saw that many recreational opportunities came to the community.
