Welcome to Child Sitting at the Paul Derda Rec Center!  

Our mission is to provide a pleasant, healthy, and safe learning environment for all children within our care. We offer care for kids age 6 months up to their 10th birthday, whose parents are participating in open recreation center activities or programs. Our goals are to hire staff qualified for positions through the City and County of Broomfield’s specific requirements. To develop age-appropriate activities that will aid in the development of social, emotional, intellectual and physical skills and to use positive methods of individual and group guidance that encourages independence and responsibility.
*This service is available to participants remaining inside the Recreation Center only.*
