“Each time I bring my one year twins to Recess, I see them develop more and more. The space invites them to play, but I’m most impressed with the skills they come away with after spending time there. I’m a former elementary school teacher and appreciate developmentally appropriate activities Recess offers to babies, toddlers and kids.”

- Mom of 1-year old twins

About the leader:

Hi Everyone! My name is Regina Elaine Delacruz and I am so excited to be part of the Recess community! A little about myself: I have my bachelor’s degree in Child Development from San Diego State University and I’ve been teaching in the field of early childhood education for 10 years now!.I’ve worked with children from infants up to age 5 and just recently decided to stay home with my 21 month old son, Miles. I live with my husband and son in the Richmond District and although we’re both from San Diego, we love calling San Francisco home. I look forward to meeting you all and reading stories and singing songs with your little ones!

Well, hello!

I created Recess in 2008 to support moms, dads, grandparents, caregivers and growing children. We're a nonprofit space designed to harness the power of community to ultimately lighten the load for families with young children.

We provide space. Space to be together, to commiserate, to reduce isolation, to be playful, to feel safe, and to breathe. We work with local experts and vetted professionals to bring quality information to you in a digestible way. In 2018, we moved to the Outer Sunset and are thrilled to be carrying on this mission in a new community.

We have a brand new playspace for kids 0-4yrs with an array of clean toys and playthings to support your child's development, a kitchen so you can bring food/drink for the inevitable new mama and toddler munchies, bathrooms and changing tables, and other families who are in the same boat as you are...making their way through this wild journey (myself included!).
