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 years. 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.

Park District of La Grange

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 Teresa Chapman, Assistant Superintendent of Recreation, at (708) 352-1762.

No child will be released from the classroom to anyone other than these individuals.

SENIOR ATHLETICS

Pickleball for Seniors (KM)

Join the pickleball craze! Pickleball, a game that combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong, is sweeping the country. Pickleball players use 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. 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. The slower pace of this class will give players the opportunity to develop the skills needed to play this fun and energetic game. All equipment will be provided. Please bring a face covering.

Why martial arts for seniors? Healthy living, healthy aging, and living longer, as we grow older we find ourselves limited by the years of wear and tear and the pain associated with it.

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 class. If you have any questions, please call Kevin Miller at (708) 352-1762. 1-15 minutes late = $5.00 Every additional minute = $1.00

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.

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. • 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.

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.

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.

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.
