PRESCHOOL 2020 - 2021 School Year

Keppler Academy Introduction & Philosophy

The West Chicago Park District’s Keppler Academy Preschool focuses on the developmental needs of children from three to five years old. Keppler Academy is designed to give children the tools and experiences necessary to assure a positive transition to kindergarten. Our program offers a warm, nurturing, and friendly environment where children can explore, create, and flourish. Socialization skills and independence are developed through a variety of daily skills and exercises. Our philosophy is that all children learn through hands-on experiences, exploration, and positive interactions with others. Every child is unique and will develop at their own pace. We foster an environment that will help all children succeed emotionally, physically, and socially. Every child has their own learning style and we give many options to explore and build on those abilities. (EP)

Pickleball is traditionally played on a badminton-sized court with special Pickleball paddles and a ball similar to a whiffle ball, but slightly smaller. The lower net and whiffle ball allow the game to be accessible to people of all ages and abilities, while still allowing more competitive players to test their mettle. It was created with one thing in mind: FUN! Checkout a paddle at the front desk using your I.D. and meet in the gym.

Behavior & Discipline Policy The West Chicago Park District promotes the concept of “equal fun for everyone” and strives to accomplish this belief through our program goals. However, in order to maintain a safe and enjoyable environment West Chicago Park District participants are expected to exhibit appropriate behavior at all times. Our behavior code states that participants shall show respect to all peers and staff, refrain from using foul language and causing bodily harm, and show respect to equipment, supplies and facilities. Additional policies may be developed for specific programs, camps, and integrated programs. The West Chicago Park District uses a caring, positive approach regarding discipline. We reserve the right to dismiss a participant. Each situation will be evaluated on its own merit.

Healthy West Chicago is committed to making permanent changes by enacting policy, systems and environmental changes to make the healthy choice the easy choice. The Healthy West Chicago Community Action Plan addresses a number of community health and wellness topics citywide and for individual neighborhoods including environmental quality, healthy food systems, public safety and social networks, sustainable transportation, parks and recreation, healthy urban design, and education about the importance of good nutrition and physical activity.

West Chicago Park District and the ADA The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) took effect in January 1990 and the West Chicago Park District complies with the legislation’s purpose which prohibits discrimination on the basis of a disability. The West Chicago Park District will make reasonable accommodations in recreation programs to enable participation by an individual with a disability that meets essential eligibility requirements for that leisure program and facilities. The ADA requires that recreation programs offered by the Park District be available in the most integrated setting appropriate for each individual. Persons with disabilities are encouraged to contact the park district at 630.231.9474 about special accommodations needed for the enjoyment of park district programs. Those who use the Telecommunications Device for the Deaf (TDD) may reach the park district by calling 800.735.2962 If you have questions about west Chicago Park District’s commitment regarding the ADA policy or you believe you have been unfairly discriminated against by the Park District, please call us at 630.231.9474.

Warning of Risk Recreational activities are intended to challenge and engage the physical, mental, and emotional resources of each participant. Despite careful and proper preparation, instruction, medical advice, conditioning, and equipment, there is still a risk of serious injury when participating in any recreational activity. Understandably, not all hazards and dangers can be foreseen. Depending on the activity, certain risks, dangers, and injuries can occur due to inclement weather, slips and falls, poor skill level or conditioning, carelessness, horseplay, unsportsmanlike conduct, premises defects, inadequate or defective equipment, inadequate supervision, instruction or officiating and all other circumstances inherent to indoor and outdoor recreational activities. The West Chicago Park District is committed to conducting all recreation programs and activities in a safe manner. We continually strive to reduce such risks and insist that all participants follow safety rules and instructions. However, it is impossible for the West Chicago Park District to guarantee absolute safety.

Program Waiver and Requirements For insurance purposes, participation in West Chicago Park District programs requires a signed waiver. The waiver and Release form must be signed by the participant if 18 years of age or older; or by a parent/guardian if under the age of 18. Individuals who refuse to sign the Waiver and Release form will not be allowed to participate in District programs.
