learning where

comes together

Take a moment to learn something new this season. Invite a friend to join you or develop new relationships with those that have shared interests. Winter can be a long season that keeps us indoors and less connected, but not if we get out and discover all of the great opportunities for learning and fun inside the pages of this brochure! Adults can take a day trip – destinations include the State Capitol for a 90-minute artwork tour, “Jersey Boys” at the Orpheum Theater, and the Wabasha Street Caves on a guided Gangster Tour in St. Paul. Or stay close to home and go on a virtual vacation and storytelling experience with Doug Ohman, local photographer and author. We are also excited about the new partnerships we’ve established with local businesses in our continued effort to offer exceptional programming. Try Gentle Yoga at Fithaus in Long Lake. Train your dog to be a better companion with obedience classes instructed by Augusta Dog Training. Learn all about gardening from the experts at Gregor Farm in Wayzata. For youth, we have new activities as well as several exceptional returning programs for all ages. In partnership with Stages Theater, 6th - 8th grade students will present Shrek Jr. the Musical in March. Middle School students can also be a part of the Spring play, The Big Bad Musical, offered in collaboration with 4 Community Theatre. Elementary-age students can try one of our many after school classes, such as Flag Football, Glitter & Slime, Beginner Kendama or Volleyball Skills. We have class options on non-school days too! We love hearing your ideas about classes you would like to see offered. We start planning the next season as soon as a brochure is released, so start thinking about what you would like to see offered this summer and let us know! We are proud to help make learning come together for all ages – we hope you will join us.

positive coaching alliance.

Orono Community Education’s partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance continues to provide valuable resources to coaches, athletes and parents. Don’t Measure Parenting Success Through Your Kid’s Achievements Matt Hayden talks about the lesson that failing in sports teaches kids. Today’s “win at all cost” culture teaches kids that failure and mistakes are unacceptable, which is not the lesson kids need to learn from sports. Failure is crucial for the growth of children, as it teaches them to take risks, face adversity and learn from previous mistakes. Parents need to let their children know that they are supported no matter the outcome of any games they play. Parents cannot measure their own achievement by that of their child. Instead, parents should embrace the lessons that sports teach whether that involves winning or losing. Matt Hayden (@MattHayden_) presently works as PCA’s Business Development Manager for Chapter Expansion. While earning his degree in Sport Management at Kennesaw State University, he was a member of the Atlanta Braves promotion team. Upon graduation he took an internship with the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. He also worked in the sales and marketing departments for Minor League Baseball’s Lakewood BlueClaws and the Kane County Cougars.

The Positive

coach

Uses the power of positive reinforcement to pursue winning and the more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports. The Positive

athlete

Strives to improve him or herself, teammates and the sport as a whole.

The Positive

sports parent

Focuses on life lessons through sports, leaving concerns about results in competition to coaches and athletes.

Parents impact their children’s lives like no other people can…in sports as in every other aspect. Parents, even those millions who coach their own kids, do best by their children when focusing on sports as a developmental opportunity, rather than a do-or-die, win-at-all-cost proposition.

parent & child classes. Why ECFE?

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is a program for all Minnesota families with children between the ages of birth to Kindergarten entrance. The program is offered through Minnesota public school districts. ECFE is based on the idea that the family provides a child’s first and most significant learning environment, and parents are a child’s first and most important teachers. ECFE works to strengthen families. ECFE’s goal is to enhance the ability of all parents and other family members to provide the best possible environment for their child’s learning and growth (Minnesota Department of Education).

What does a typical ECFE class include? Parent-Child Activity Time where families explore a classroom filled with developmentally appropriate play and learning activities planned by a licensed early childhood teacher. Parent-Child Circle Time where parents help their children with their first experiences in a large group activity at school. ECFE teachers are famous for the fun and creative ways they encourage language, music and your imagination. Parent Discussion Time where parents meet with a licensed parent educator to share support, experiences and information about child development and parenting techniques. Children’s Activity Time where children learn with early childhood staff and practice social skills as they interact with each other.

Class Definitions

Non-Separating: Parents stay with children the entire class. Separating: Parent discussion time is held in a separate room. Some younger classes will transition to separating.

Sibling Care

You must pre-register and pre-pay for sibling care for parent-child classes. Register online. Please include the names and ages of children needing sibling care. Our goal is to provide safe, reliable and fun care for your children while you attend ECFE offerings. *Sibling care is not available for Mixed Ages ECFE classes.

Tuition

Tuition for ECFE parent-child classes is based on household income and is on a sliding fee scale.

2017-18 Sliding Fee Scale for Parent-Child Classes Fees must never be the reason you don't attend ECFE! Please call if fees are difficult to pay at this time. The Minnesota state legislature requires all ECFE programs to utilize a sliding fee scale based on household income. Orono has traditionally kept fees as low as possible. Please note that these fees will be due monthly, October through May. Annual Family Gross Income $95,000 + $75,000-$94,999 $60,000-$74,999 $45,000-$59,999 $25,000-$44,999 Under $24,999 Sibling Care monthly cost

parenting & family. Empower Your kids to live a healthy life

Presented by Rachel Hovey, DC, of Align Health & Wellness

Headaches and migraines, chronic colds and ear infections, bed-wetting, eczema, ADHD - these things are common, but they are not normal. Be inspired by learning there are alternatives to “masking the symptoms” and how you can help your children attain them!

Transitions: from here to there to everywhere

Presented by Karen Pennaz, Orono Parent Educator

Transitions are hard for most toddlers and young children. Children feel safe when they know their feelings are valid. They don’t yet have the verbal skills to say “Hey, I’m right in the middle of something, just give me another 10 minutes.” Leaving a playdate, getting out the door in the morning, coming to the dinner table, etc. They live in the moment and are still learning the concept of time. It’s doubtful that your child will ever grin broadly, drop his/her toys in the sandbox and hop into the stroller to go home for a nap, but with patience and diplomacy, you can help your child take a few steps forward. Clock hours available.
