Early Childhood Recreation Learning Program

ECRLPThe Early Childhood Recreation Learning Program is an ideal environment allowing children to receive a quality educational and recreational experience. Our philosophy is to learn through play. The teachers are educated in the field of early childhood and are there to assist in nurturing your child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth. The program is designed to develop your child’s self image.

We offer 2 ALL DAY programs as well as half day programs. The extra time spent in the classroom allows the children to expand upon their readiness skills for future education in preschool or Kindergarten, and provides an alternative for working parents with a safe, fun and educational environment for their children.

Family involvement is a part of our program. If you register for an ALL DAY program please send a lunch and drink daily with your child.

Below are the class options to choose from.

Meet the Teachers
Hello, I am Rosemarie Lugay the teacher for the Purple Pals and Blue Buddies. I have been working in early child care for twenty eight years, nineteen of which as a teaching director. My love for children started way back when... I was twelve years old with a story hour for the young children around my block. I am very excited to start a new year where every day is a new experience.
Hello, my name is Cynthia and I am very excited to be the new teacher’s aide! I am a new addition to the park district and I love it. You may have seen me working at Proksa’s activity center, or one of our park’s many wonderful events. I am currently in school studying for Early Childhood Education. I really enjoy helping teach new things and provide a fun, safe, and friendly environment. I look forward to working with the children and am happy that I will be sharing this new amazing experience with them.
