Program Philosophy Learning Ladders is a recreation program that has been designed to meet the physical, social, intellectual, and creative needs of children ages 2 1/2 to 5. It is based on the premise that children learn through play. Play serves as a “child’s work”, a time when new discoveries and friendships are made. Through play, children learn to communicate with words, express feelings, explore, create, problem solve, make decisions, and much, much more. In addition to creative free play there will be a balance of teacher directed group activities as well. Introduction and exposure to letters, numbers, colors, shapes, and other beginning concepts occurs. Our teaching staff creates and implements lesson plans based on the Illinois Early Learning Standards.

Goals and Objectives Our primary goal at Learning Ladders is that children learn through socialization and play based activities. Our secondary goal is that children are exposed to reading readiness skills, ABCs, 123s, shapes and colors. • Develop a sense of security in group situations. • Develop respect for others. • Establish routines, patterns and sharing behavior. • Learn problem-solving skills. • Learn correct use, respect and responsibility for materials and equipment. • Explore the surrounding environment. • Provide a fun, happy and safe environment for all participants. We have a variety of play areas and materials to help us accomplish these objectives. A child’s first social experience should be positive and enjoyable. Our Learning Ladders Preschool is a happy and safe place for these first experiences to begin. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the program at any time, please contact Diana Faught, Assistant Superintendent of Recreation, at (708) 352-1762 or via email at dianafaught@pdlg.org

D PRO O GR Y DHO L AM R IL A S E CH EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS • Children must be the correct age by the first day the program meets, 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. • 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. *Note: the park district staff does not change diapers, the parents will be contacted in the case of an accident.

CHRIS BRUNET Fitness Instructor Insanity, PIYO, R.I.P.P.E.D, Fit for Life, Cycle, Barbell, Boot Camp, Kickboxing, Turbo Kick, Streetvybe Dance, Aqua Aerobics, Group Fitness Instructor 2007-Present Teaching group fitness classes for the past 11years has been one of the most rewarding events in my life thus far. Being a witness to the amazing things a person’s body can do, the strength that an individual possesses and the sheer will and determination that people have to finish a class, is a privilege and honor that I hold dear. Having started my fitness journey as an unconditioned overweight participant, I know what it’s like to walk into to your first exercise class – how intimidating and nerve-racking it can be. I hope to be a welcoming and encouraging instructor that can help participants start and be successful in their journey. Keep moving always.

RUTH REXING Fitness Instructor I have more than 25 years of experience in teaching. I believe that exercise should be fun or you won’t want to return. I teach Toned & Strong and Step classes. If you are thinking about joining a class, consider one of my classes. I guarantee you’ll meet some great people, reduce stress, and have fun!

SUE CHILTON Fitness Instructor Sue has been practicing yoga for over 20 years and believes yoga is ageless. Along with her 200 hour Yoga teaching certificate, she has specialized training adapting yoga for the prenatal and also the senior body. In her classes she strives to offer each student the chance to deepen their awareness of self, using the flow of breath synchronized movement to benefit mind body and spirit. Realizing, without judgment, that everybody and every body is unique, she invites you to become more aware of the beauty in you through yoga.

Beginner Pickleball for Seniors (KJ) Join the pickleball craze! Pickleball, a game that combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong, is sweeping the country. Pickleball players use wooden paddles and whiffle balls to play on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net. This low-impact sport is easier on the knees and shoulders than tennis as it does not involve as much running or arm strength. Pickleball is a recreational game that is designed to encourage an active lifestyle. We are offering two levels of beginner classes for interested seniors who want to play this easy-to-learn game. This class is for those who have never played pickleball before or who have very limited experience with the sport. It will focus on pickleball basics such as forehand and backhand shots, serving, and court positioning. Players will also learn scoring and the rules of the game through drills and playing time.

GENERAL INFORMATION LATE PICK-UP POLICY The Park District of La Grange staff will supervise children who are left beyond the scheduled time until a parent or other authorized adult on the pick-up list arrives. However, late pick-ups will result in a fee. Payment of the late fee is to be paid at the Recreation Center located at 536 East Avenue BEFORE your child can attend the next day of camp/class. If you have any questions, please call Kevin Miller at 352-1762.

6. No golfing in the parks. Youth golf program participants are exempt from this rule during scheduled golf lessons. 7. Parks are open from sunrise to sunset unless otherwise posted. Exceptions apply to lighted areas (i.e. courts, fields, etc.)

Program Code of Conduct To ensure enjoyable and safe programs for all participants, the Park District of La Grange has developed a behavior code. Participants shall: • Show respect to all participants and staff.

1-15 minutes late = $5.00 Every additional minute = $1.00

• Refrain from using foul language. • Refrain from causing bodily harm.

Important Information The Park District of La Grange is committed to conducting its recreation programs and activities in the safest manner possible and holds the safety of participants in the highest regard. Participants and parents registering their child in recreation programs must recognize, however, that there is an inherent risk of injury when choosing to participate in recreation activities. The Park District of La Grange continually strives to reduce such risks and insists that all participants follow safety rules and instructions which have been designed to protect the participant’s safety. Please recognize that the Park District of La Grange does not carry medical accident insurance for injuries sustained in its programs. The cost of such would make program fees prohibitive; therefore, each person registering themselves or a family member for a recreation program/activity should review their own medical insurance policy for coverage. It must also be noted that the absence of medical insurance coverage does not make the Park District of La Grange automatically responsible for the payment of medical expenses. The Park District of La Grange requires that all program participants or legal guardians sign a Liability Waiver and Release form at the time of registration. This form must be signed prior to participation in any Park District program. Your cooperation and understanding is greatly appreciated.

Park Usage Rules For your Safety and Protection....CERTAIN LOCAL RULES ARE ESTABLISHED BY THE BOARD OF PARK COMMISSIONERS SO THAT ALL MAY ENJOY THE PARKS SAFELY. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLY WITH THE FOLLOWING RULES. 1. No dogs are allowed in the parks. 2. No alcoholic beverages are allowed in any park areas. 3. No driving or parking of cars, motorcycles or snowmobiles are allowed in any grass area or sportsfield. 4. No weapons of any type may be carried by anyone in the park except by the police. This includes slingshots, pellet guns or guns which are in a case. 5. No smoking within any Park District buildings.

72

PARK DISTRICT OF LA GRANGE

• Show respect to equipment, supplies, and facilities. Additional rules are developed for specific programs as deemed necessary by staff.

Program Financial Assistance The Financial Assistance Policy of the Park District of La Grange is established to provide a fair and equitable system through which District residents may take part in recreation programs when they are unable to pay the required fees. Partial program fee waivers may be granted for Park District of La Grange residents for certain programs. Any family who would like to see if they are eligible for a scholarship may obtain an application from the Park District of La Grange Administration Office at 536 East Avenue, La Grange, IL 60525.

CO-OP Programming If the graphic symbol appears next to a program title, it is a CO-OP, and resident rates apply for all agencies indicated. All participating agencies must achieve minimum enrollment for a class to be held. There are three reasons why park districts and recreation departments typically offer programs in cooperation with another agency. Reason #1 is because individually each agency does not have the population base to support a program. Reason #2 is that one of the agencies does not have the facility to offer a program. Reason #3 is that both agencies can increase the variety of programs offered to their residents.

Americans with Disabilites The Park District of La Grange is committed to accessibility for individuals with disabilities and strives to provide equal, integrated participation in all programs, activities and services. The Park District’s policy is to reasonably accommodate all qualified program applicants in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We welcome the questions, comments and concerns of interested community members regarding District ADA compliance. To arrange for auxiliary aids or accommodations enabling individuals with disabilities to participate in Park District public meetings, or to request publications in a special format (such as audiocassette or large print), contact the Superintendent of Recreation by calling (708) 352-1762 or mail to 536 East Avenue, La Grange, IL 60525.
