Why is Sprout Unique? What is a Green Preschool?

Sprout Academy is a certified Eco-Healthy school by the Oregon Environmental Council. Our classroom passed a 30-point checklist that evaluated the paint on the walls, the cleaning products we use, the educational materials on the shelves, and more. The Sprout Academy is a safe place for your child to learn & play. In addition to the physical space being Eco-Healthy, instructors lead by example and teach students the importance of reducing, reusing, repurposing & recycling. We are outdoors as much as possible taking the children through Gabriel Park to learn why the environment matters to each of us! We have our own community garden plot as a second classroom in warmer weather. We teach simple concepts of sustainability and how we can do our part. You might find your little Sprout teaching you, too!

With 3 years of TKD classes at SWCC, I am thrilled with the confidence, focus, grace, discipline and dignity that the class has instilled in my daughter Rowan, age 8. They don’t just focus on TKD but also grades, and how to be a helpful, respectful part of society. Rowan’s favorite part of class is learning her new forms. ~ Cole Budlong

Portland Parks & Recreation Water Workouts Exercising in the water cushions the impact, reducing stress on the joints while supporting the muscles and promoting more efficient toning. Twelve times more resistant than air, water allows triple strength gains over land aerobics! In addition, heart rates are lower in the water, allowing for optimal fat burning and less fatigue. Check out our shallow or deep-water classes, and enjoy the benefits!

Up to 6 lap lanes will be available at designated times, call 503-823-2840 for a complete schedule of lap lanes available during operating hours. PAC (Portland Aquatic Club): Mon-Fri 4pm-5:30pm PIL: Mon-Fri 7:30pm-9:00pm (Nov. 18-Feb. 21) Jesuit: Mon-Fri 2:45pm-4pm (Nov. 18-Feb. 14) LAP SWIM ETIQUETTE: “Circle Swimming” is necessary when more than two people are in a lane. Lane lines divide lap lanes. Think of the lane as a highway, always stay on the right hand side. Like a highway lap lanes may become crowded, at these times “circle swimming” is a necessity. Lap lanes are designated according to a swimmer’s speed: slow, medium, and fast. Look at the yellow markers at the end of the pool to find your appropriate lane.

Non-residents who wish to register for PP&R activities may choose one of these options: • pay the additional 40% non-resident fee. • purchase a non-resident pass as either an individual or family for a period of three, six, nine or twelve months from the date of purchase. Once a non-resident pass is purchased, you can sign up for classes and memberships at the resident rate. Inquire about this option at time of registration. Non-resident passes are not refundable. Passes are activated at the date of purchase and must be valid at the time of registration through the last day of class to be eligible for the resident fee. Non-Resident Pass Prices 3 Month Pass: Individual - $25 6 Month Pass: Individual - $45 9 Month Pass: Individual - $65 One Year Pass: Individual - $85

Family - $50 Family - $90 Family - $130 Family - $170

A family is defined as a unit that resides at the same address. Children and/or close relatives should be included in a family consistent with IRS dependency status. At the discretion of the Community Center Director, a family’s most recent tax forms may be required as proof of dependency status.

CLASS ENROLLMENT: Our classes must meet minimum

and maximum enrollment standards. Classes may fill quickly or be canceled due to low enrollment.

WITHDRAWAL & REFUNDS: Please notify us at least

five (5) business days (Monday-Friday), unless otherwise specified, before the start of your program so that we can refund or credit your account for the registration fee. Prepaid materials and admission tickets cannot be refunded. Participants needing to withdraw after the program has begun are offered a prorated credit or refund based upon when the request is made.

SCHOLARSHIPS: City of Portland residents, regardless

of age, who require financial assistance may apply for partial scholarships. Contact individual centers for information.

The nonprofit Portland Parks Foundation has launched a scholarship fund to make community centers affordable for all children this winter, regardless of financial means. Make a donation in honor of a friend’s name, and the Portland Parks Foundation will send them an e-greeting card. It’s Portland’s most sustainable holiday gift program: promoting healthy families while conserving resources. As a token of our appreciation, scholarship fund donors and their honorees receive 30%-off special offers from Columbia Sportswear, Mountain Hardwear, and Icebreaker, for staying warm over the holidays.
