The school-age group (Rocks) had a play taco stand last week! They worked on life skills by paying with play money, selecting items from a menu, filling out an order card, and playing roles such as customer, server or chef. The activity also incorporated the use of fine motor skills with the use of tongs to construct felt tacos. The kiddos had a blast making play tacos with their friends!

Lani has been working at Respite Care as a Child Care Specialist since May of 2018, and was previously a volunteer for several years! She works with our youngest kiddos, the Pebbles. Lani says her favorite part of working at Respite Care is making relationships with each of the children, seeing them form friendships with one another, and watching each kiddo grow and meet their goals. Outside of Respite Care, Lani is studying to be an Early Childhood teacher with hopes of being a Special Education teacher someday. She loves to coach soccer and spend time with her friends & family!
Lyla has been a Pebble at Respite Care for over 3 years. "At Respite, she loves to play outside, be a chef in the pretend-Respite Care kitchen, and play with baby dolls or stuffed animals. She can also usually be found waving at all of the busses that come through Respite Care's parking lot! At home, Lyla's mom says she loves to play with her older brothers, color, hike with her family, and dress up as a princess.
Lyla has a contagious smile and laughter - we are so grateful she is a part of the Respite family!
