These friendships and memories will last a lifetime.” ~ Cali DeBella

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.


Ages 3-4 (as of 9/1/12) Open Registration began on March 24, 2012 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, 2012 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 on the day you 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, which begins on Dec. 7, 2012. ACTV#

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.

MEMORIAL TREE 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 Memorial Tree Program is dedicated to the planting of a tree 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. Each tree will be designated with an engraved plaque honoring your request. For further information, please call 815.485.3584.
