    Letter from the City ManagerConneCTing oUR CHiLDRen

    Each child is unique, and all children share the need for nurturing and trustworthy adults for stability, security, for increasing autonomy, and for a sense of competence and self-worth. Children generally have a fresh approach to new experiences. Most children possess a sense of trust that the world and people in it are friendly and kind, and they tackle the world with enthusiasm and joy.

    One of the goals of our Community Services programs is to provide an environment in which children are CONNECTED to programs which encourage enthusiasm. The Community Services Department seeks to CONNECT Colton by partnering with and promoting the ideals of the National Recreation and Park Association. These ideals include:

    Provide healthier food option choices Address physical activity policies for park and recreation

    programs

    Build and maintain parks and playgrounds that are safe and attractive for playing and in close proximity to residential areas

    Adopt community policing strategies that improve safety and security of children in streets and park use

    Develop policies to increase physical activity to at least 30 minutes before, during, and after school each day

    Collaborate with schools to implement a Safe Routes to School Program

    Encourage daycare and afterschool programs to utilize nutrition assistance programs

    Develop targeted media campaigns to promote access to available resources related to physical activity and healthy eating.
