You will receive a handbook which includes the days classes do not meet as well as the payment schedule at the time of registration.

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.

Winter 2021

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.

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.

FINANCIAL REPORT

Our Fiscal Year: May 1- April 30, 2020 At the Park District of La Grange, our mission is to provide quality recreation programs, facilities, and parks that enhance the health, happiness, and quality of life of Park District residents and program participants. We appreciate your support and invite you to visit your local parks and facilities. The Park District has several different revenue sources from taxes and fees to grants and bonds. Recreation user fees include program activity fees, fitness center memberships and rental fees for the use of the Park District facilities. This year the Park District was closed for one and a half months at year end due to the Covid 19 pandemic. This shut down caused about a 10% reduction in recreation user fees for the year ended April 30, 2020.

During this past fiscal year, expenditures exceeded revenue and other financing sources by $279,178 for the District as a whole. In the General and Special Revenue Funds, revenues exceeded expenditures for the year by $391,218, allowing the District to transfer $309,700 to the Capital Projects Fund. Above average spending on capital projects created the deficit for this fiscal year. However, many of these projects were deemed necessary and had been delayed due to lack of funding. Even though the combined net change in fund balances was a decrease, the District still retained sufficient fund balances to fulfill its mission to provide quality recreation programs, facilities, and parks.

What share of your property tax bill goes to the Park District?

Often, residents are not aware that the Park District is a separate taxing body from the Village of La Grange. The Park District is governed by a five- member Board of Commissioners that is elected by the residents. As a separate governmental entity, the Park District can levy and collect taxes on all taxable property within the District. Based on a typical 2019 tax bill approximately 4.5 cents of every tax dollar are for the Park District of La Grange.

Based on 2019 Tax Levy

School Districts

Village of La Grange

Village of La Grange Library

County of Cook

Park District of La Grange

Other Agencies -6

The Cook County Assessor’s Office calculates the Equalized Assessed Value (EAV) on business and personal properties annually to help determine the amount of property taxes to be paid per business or household. Based on the results of these assessed values, the Park District uses its current tax rate to draw revenue from each property’s EAV to support and provide its public service. In 2019, the tax rate for the Park District of La Grange was 41.7 cents.

Park District Fund Balance

Investing in Capital Projects

Each year, the District prepares a capital budget for repairs and/or replacement of equipment or amenities. The capital projects are financed with a combination of non-referendum bond money, grants, and surplus from the operating funds. During this past year, many projects were completed but most of the spending was on several roofing and paving projects. By grouping the projects together, we were able to obtain better pricing. Roofing projects were the replacement of the Community Center roof and a section of the Recreation Center roof. Paving projects were replacing the north and west parking lots at Sedgewick Park, resurfacing the tennis courts at Sedgewick Park, and replacing and widening the walking path at Gilbert Park.

Debt Administration

General obligation park bonds were issued for a total of $338,800. This is the normal annual rollover that the Park District issues each year to pay debt service on alternate revenue bonds with any remaining balance allocated to capital projects. Overall, there was a net decrease in general obligation park bonds outstanding of $608,174.

Excellence in Reporting

At the conclusion of each fiscal year, the Park District prepares a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) that clearly communicates the financial condition of the Park District and provides details on activities and balances for the fiscal year. This report is audited by a professional, independent audit firm whose opinion appears as part of the report. This report is also submitted to the Government Finance Officers Association’s award program. This organization has awarded our report the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting every year since 1995. To achieve this award, the District’s CAFR must clearly communicate its financial story to the reader and satisfy all the applicable legal requirements and generally accepted accounting principles. The CAFR is available on our website at www.pdlg.org.

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. 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.

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.
