Oceanside Community Services is always assessing services, environment and safety of our clients and their families. Recently, the safety committee completed an office inspection and was able to identify how we could increase confidentiality by adding sound machines and sound-proofing walls. In response to our trauma informed assessment check-list, the bathroom and all offices were clearly identified. We would appreciate any other feedback, questions or concerns regarding safety within the office environment in order to better our services.

Feel free to leave questions, comment and/or suggestion in our suggestion box located next to the candy jar!

How much physical activity do children need?

Children and adolescents should do 60 minutes (1 hour) or more of physical activity each day.

This may sound like a lot, but don’t worry!  Your child may already be meeting the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.  And, you’ll soon discover all the easy and enjoyable ways to help your child meet the recommendations.  Encourage your child to participate in activities that are age-appropriate, enjoyable and offer variety!  Just make sure your child or adolescent is doing three types of physical activity:

1. Aerobic Activity

Aerobic activity should make up most of your child’s 60 or more minutes of physical activity each day.  This can include either moderate-intensity aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, or vigorous-intensity activity, such as running.  Be sure to include vigorous-intensity aerobic activity on at least 3 days per week.

2. Muscle Strengthening

Include muscle strengthening activities, such as gymnastics or push-ups, at least 3 days per week as part of your child’s 60 or more minutes.

3. Bone Strengthening

 Include bone strengthening activities, such as jumping rope or running, at least 3 days per week as part of your child’s 60 or more minutes
