No refunds are given for Special Events or one-day programs. A full refund is issued if we cancel a program or trip.

First-Time Registration When registering for the first time, residents will need to provide proof of residency by showing proper documentation. Please visit our website www.newlenoxparks.org Online Registration Banner or call 815.485.3584 for details.

1. When a participant cancels out of a program, a full refund, LESS a $5.00 Service Charge (per program); will be granted. A $5.00 service charge will also be accessed on all program transfers.

Every effort will be made to process refunds within 30 days, but in some instances it may take longer. CANCELLATION: The staff reserves the right to consolidate, postpone, reschedule or cancel any program due to change in day, dates, times, instructor, or insufficient enrollment. For cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances (i.e. inclement weather, facility emergencies or scheduling conflicts), which are announced by the Lincoln-Way District #210 or New Lenox School District #122 at facilities where Park District programs are scheduled, Park District programming will be cancelled as well. All attempts will be made to reschedule cancelled classes. However, the New Lenox Community Park District is sometimes unable to accommodate make-up classes and will not refund money in such instances. PROGRAM BEHAVIOR POLICY: Participants are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior at all times. The following guidelines have been developed to help make Park District programs safe and enjoyable for all participants. Additional rules may be developed for particular programs and athletic leagues as deemed necessary by staff. 1.Show respect to all participants and staff; take direction from staff. 2. Refrain from using abusive or foul language. 3.Refrain from causing bodily harm to self, other participants, or staff. 4. Show respect to equipment, supplies, and facilities.

Early Childhood Program Requirements

• Children must be the correct age by 9/1/12, unless otherwise specified. In order to provide your child with the best possible recreational and/or learning experience, all of our programs are planned according to the ages listed in our brochure. • Classes are for child attending only, except for classes with an adult.  Parents should not remain in the classroom or gymnasium after dropping off their child. This is in the child’s best interest, as continual interruptions tend to affect participant’s attention span and inhibit the establishment of peer relationships. • All children must be potty-trained, unless they are attending a class where an adult stays with them or otherwise stated in the class description. Diapers are not permitted in independent classes unless stated in the class description. • Please do not bring food to any class, unless previously arranged. • For your children’s safety, all children enrolled in preschool- age programs must be picked up from the specific classroom or program site by their parents or designated guardian. No child will be released from the classroom to anyone other than these individuals. • A mandatory sign-in and sign-out procedure for all participants is required for all Park District Programs.

KIDDIE KAMPUS 2013-2014

Kiddie Kampus/KinderPlus 2013-2014 – Open House

Before you make that important step of choosing the right preschool for your child, come for a tour of our facility and see what we have to offer! Our staff will be on hand to give tours of their classrooms and answer any questions you may have. Our open house will be Mon., Feb. 18 from 6:00-7:30pm at our Lions Community Center location. Come and meet the teachers and see what we are all about!

Kiddie Kampus 2013-2014

Ages 3-4 (as of 9/1/13) Resident Registration Date: Saturday, March 23 8:00-11:00am (Doors open at 7:00am) LCC (Room 1) Entry C Out-of-District Registration begins Monday, April 1 What does Kiddie Kampus offer its participants? Children learn many things before going to kindergarten. The New Lenox Community Park District offers preschool classes designed to develop social, emotional and physical skills to ensure school readiness. A child’s separation from parents and involvement with a non-family member is one of many major steps towards his/her development. Kiddie Kampus provides a safe and supportive environment for your child’s first school experience while increasing his/her self-esteem and confidence through age appropriate instruction. Covered during the year are color, shape and number recognition, an introduction to number concepts and letter recognition. Your child’s quest for learning will be nurtured through creative play, building friendships, working individually and cooperating as part of a group. These activities promote patience, sharing and the awareness that there is a whole world of people surrounding and supporting them. Songs, stories, activities and games are used for reinforcement and fun. What requirements are necessary for Kiddie Kampus registration? 1. A copy of your child’s birth certificate MUST be provided at registration. A child must be four (three for the 3 year old program), on or before Sept. 1, 2013 and must be able to handle bathroom hygiene independently (potty trained, no diapers). It is very helpful if the child is able to zip/button independently. 2. A $50.00 non-refundable registration fee, $10.00 T-shirt fee and first month’s tuition will be collected, beginning Saturday, March 23 from 8:00am-11:00pm, when you pre-register your child. 3. A voter’s card or tax bill is required at registration for verification of residency. Our Kiddie Kampus follows New Lenox School District #122’s calendar year for all full days off except for our winter break.

When visiting local parks with your pet, please remember that Park District and Village ordinances require dogs to be leashed at all times. Owners are responsible for cleaning up any animal excrement from public property.

What is the S.T.O.P. PROGRAM? S.T.O.P. stands for Stop Trashing Our Parks. This beaver character is designed to increase awareness of a community effort to deter park vandalism. This program offers cash rewards for any information provided which leads to the apprehension of park vandals. Any individuals providing information are not required to identify themselves. It is our hope that kids of all ages can relate to this “friendly mascot” and understand that he is trying to protect the parks. Our park district now offers an introduction to this program which can be presented to schools and civic groups.

COMMEMORATIVE TREE AND BENCH PROGRAM Are you looking for a special way in which to honor a loved one or to commemorate a Special Event? The New Lenox Community Park District’s Commemorative Tree and Bench Program is dedicated to the planting of a tree or placement of a bench in honor of a loved one, organization, or to celebrate your special occasion. There is a variety of trees that can be purchased and planted. Please keep in mind that trees may be purchased at any time, but are only planted in the spring and fall and benches would be installed weather permitting. Please note that these trees and/or benches may be placed within a park site or at our Sanctuary Golf course but restrictions do apply. Each commemorative donation will be designated with a plaque honoring your request. For further information, please call 815.485.3584.
