Registration Information 1. Resident Registration Only

Walk-in resident registration will take place on Saturday, Aug. 4 from 8:00 am-4:00 pm at the Recreation Center, 536 East Avenue, and continues thereafter during regular office hours. Residents can only register their own family during resident registration on Aug. 4.

2. Non-Resident Registration

Individuals residing outside of the Park District boundaries may register starting at 8 a.m. Monday, Aug. 13. This includes Neighborhood Network residents.

3. Online Registration

The Park District of La Grange offers online registration. Come in to the Recreation Center to complete an online registration form to receive the required user name and password for online access. Online registration runs simultaneously to walk-in registration; neither procedure has priority over the other. Online registration is available 24/7 once registration begins for the season. A nonrefundable $2 administration fee applies to online registration transactions.

4. First Come First Served

All programs have a minimum and maximum enrollment and will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

5. Program Waiting Lists

Maximum enrollments for programs ensure quality and safety for you and your children. In the past, we made every effort to accommodate as many residents as possible without negatively impacting the programs. This has led to disappointment and frustration for all involved due to problems in timing (those on the waiting lists would find another way to spend their time), and the difficulty related to finding qualified instructors in a short period of time. For the fall program season, waiting lists will be unlimited. This list will be taken to allow for dropouts and cancellations prior to the start of a program. Our deadline for requesting refunds is 5 days before the start of class. This change helps eliminate last minute decisions regarding program and waiting list status.

6. False Information/Resident Priority

Persons failing to indicate Non-Resident status, or registering Non-Residents as Park District Residents will be dropped from the program without refund.

7. Refunds and Cancellation

Refunds will not be issued after the first class date and must be requested no less than 5 days before the first class meeting. A prorated refund will be issued in cases when the Park District receives a written certificate from a physician that a medical condition exists that prohibits participation. The medical note must be received no later than 14 days after the session end date. A prorated refund may also be issued if the registrant moves outside of the District boundaries. A $5 service charge will be deducted from all refunds over $5, except when a medical certificate is presented in writing, or the District cancels a program. If the Park District cancels a program, participants will have a choice of full refund, credit or class transfer, if available.

8. Insufficient Funds Fee:

In the event that a program is paid for by check, and that check is returned to the District stamped N.S.F., full payment as well as a $20.00 penalty will be required in cash or cashiers check before attendance in a class can continue.

9. Fee Code

The fee code used in this brochure is as follows: (R) Resident of Park District of La Grange (NR) Non-Resident (NN) Neighborhood Network

10. Proof of Residency

Proof of La Grange residency is required to qualify for resident rates for program registrations, usage passes and facility rentals. A driver’s license, state ID or utility bill is acceptable. This policy assures the lowest fees for La Grange residents.

11. Neighborhood Network (NN)

All communities that border La Grange which include Western Springs, La Grange Park, Countryside, Brookfield, La Grange Highlands, and McCook will be charged only 10% more than resident rate for all programs. Proof of residency is required. For all co-op programs, non-residents from the co-op district will get the resident rate.

12. Co-op Programming

If the graphic symbol q appears next to a program title it is a co-op and resident rate applies for all agencies indicated. All participating agencies must achieve minimum enrollment for a class to be held. Co-op codes: LP-La Grange Park, WS-Western Springs, CSCountryside

13. Senior Discount

Seniors age 55+ receive a 10% discount for most PDLG programs for adults.

14. Proof of Age

The Park District of La Grange reserves the right to require proof of age for participants age 3 and under.

15. Payment/Enrollment Verification

When in doubt, call the Park District office at (708) 352-1762.

16. Assessment Description

You will be assessed a $5 registration fee when signing up for programs. This fee is charged only once per household per season for registrations of $20 and over. If after your initial registration you decide to enroll in more programs during the same program season, simply alert us to that fact when you register. The assessment fee does not apply to online registrations. Collecting this fee allows the Park District to meets its costs without raising fees for every program.

17. Payment Methods

Payment methods accepted are: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, cash and check. Driver’s license required for checks.

18. Register Early!

Classes subject to cancellation if they do not meet minimum enrollments a week before class starts, unless otherwise noted.

Why are there initials next to the programs (LG-Laura Gallagher, DF-Diana Faught, RH-Ross Houston, KM-Kevin Miller)? They represent the staff member responsible for that program. This will help you connect with the right person to answer your questions.

Middle Monkeys

Learning Ladders 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 Illinois Early Learning Standards.

Early Childhood

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.

General Information

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.

• Show respect to all participants and staff. • Refrain from using foul language. • Refrain from causing bodily harm. • Show respect to equipment, supplies, and facilities.

Additional rules are developed for specific programs as deemed necessary by staff.

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.

Program Financial Assistance

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.

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.

Please recognize that the Park District of La Grange does not carry medical accident insurance for injuries sustained in its programs.

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.

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:

72

Your Fun Destination!

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.

CO-OP Programming If the graphic symbol q 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 Disabilities Act (ADA)

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) 3521762 or by writing to 536 East Avenue, La Grange, IL 60525.

Inclusive Recreation Programs

In a continuing effort to meet the needs of residents with special needs, SEASPAR and the Park District of La Grange provide inclusive recreation services. This means that individuals with disabilities participate in programs offered by the Park District.


This inclusive recreation environment provides residents with disabilities greater choices for their leisure time and allows all residents to learn about one another as they participate together.

Let the Park District and SEASPAR know of your special needs interests so that we can provide the support necessary for successful inclusion. By communicating your needs, the Park District and SEASPAR can be prepared to provide you with appropriate services. Please contact the Superintendent of Recreation to convey your needs.

Photographs

The Park District of La Grange uses pictures of participants in its programs and special events to inform others of these recreational opportunities. We do not use any identification in our brochure. If you do not want a picture taken, please tell our photographer.

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 pickups 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 Laura Gallagher at 352-1762.

1-15 minutes late = $5.00 Every minute after that = $1.00

Give the Gift of Fun!

A gift certificate for a recreation program or activity is the perfect gift for anyone. You can purchase a gift certificate at the Park District Office at 536 East Avenue, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.

Employment Opportunities

The Park District of La Grange is looking for qualified, enthusiastic people for a variety of positions. Applications for part time jobs are accepted year round. Persons interested in teaching or supervising a recreation program should contact the recreation department at (708) 352-1762. Persons interested in working in our parks and maintenance department should call (708) 352-1762. Applications can be picked up at the Park District office at 536 East Avenue. The Park District of La Grange is an equal opportunity employer.

Park and Facility Rental Permits

Need a convenient site to hold an organization or business meeting? Want an indoor space to hold a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday party? Would an outdoor playing field, court or pavilion be the perfect spot for a family reunion? Now is the time to start planning for these events, and the Park District of La Grange can help with their indoor and outdoor facility rental space!

The Park District has both indoor and outdoor facilities that can be rented by the hour for family functions, club and school activities, civic group meetings or athletic events. Facilities, such as the Community Center, Recreation Center, ball fields, tennis courts, picnic shelters and soccer fields can be reserved. Please keep in mind that all facilities may not be available as Park District programs have the first priority for all facilities. To reserve a facility, both residents and non-residents age 21 or older must complete an application in advance and file the application at the Park District of La Grange administrative offices, 536 East Avenue, during regular office hours. A minimum security deposit of $100 is due at time of application. Specific cancellation policies and refund fee information is available upon application of site. Reservations are on a first come, first served basis. For more information about renting a park site or facility, contact the Park District at (708) 352-1762.
