Summer is Not Over, But Back-to-School the Kids Will Go!

Friday, August 20 2021

Our staff is working hard gearing up for the start of the new school year for both the Learning Ladders Preschool and the Before & After School Program.

One of the major goals of the Before & After School Program is to create a safe, secure, and comforting environment and recreational experience for each child. The BASE program knows kids need to learn to be responsible, independent, and a contributor to the group. The program is designed to emphasize and promote a positive self-concept as well as a sense of responsibility in each child.

The primary goal at Learning Ladders is that children learn through socialization and play-based activities. The secondary goal is that children are exposed to reading readiness skills, ABCs, 123s, shapes, and colors. There are a variety of play areas and materials to help accomplish these objectives. A child’s first social experience should be positive and enjoyable.

The park district is eager to welcome students back into the classroom this fall! Our teachers are excited to be a part of each student’s growth and development throughout this year. We look forward to seeing all the returning students and getting to know the new ones as well!
