    Kindergarteners have their graduation at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, May 20th. If you have a kindergartener and would like them to attend JCPRD upon finishing graduation, that is an option! Mrs. Woolery has informed me that they have the option of going home with their parents, or staying in their classroom after the ceremony as well. If you would like your child to attend JCPRD after graduation, it will be no additional charge, and would be treated as an all-day programming day. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WILL BE HAVING YOUR CHILD ATTEND JCPRD THIS DAY so I can plan accordingly :)

    7710 RENNER ROAD

    JCPRD's Children Service's Trucks and Big Rigs
    Have you ever wondered what the inside of that big rig or tractor looks like? Do you have a child who LOVES trucks? Bring them out to the parking lot of The Theatre in the Park, located in beautiful Shawnee Mission Park, to explore trucks, tractors, construction, and city vehicles up close. Crawl, climb, and sit in the driver's seat and talk with the real life operators of these vehicles. We also feature the tow truck character from the animation movie: Cars, as well as many other kids favorites.

    Benefiting Special Olympics & Special Populations
    Admission to this four-hour event is free, but a donation of $10 per participant vehicle is suggested at the gate. All proceeds will benefit the JCPRD Special Olympics and Special Populations Department.

    HP3 - 2016 *Duathlon *10K *5k

    Do you want to do a 5K, 10K, or maybe even a Duathlon?? Well, join us at Heritage Park on May 14th. This is a cheap event that is close by that you and your child can do!! Want $2.00 off registration? Let me know and I can get you a code! I also have a simple training plan to get you in the shape to be able to do one of the above that has been put together by our wellness department. I would be more than happy to make a copy of that for you as well!

    Sign in/out Policy

    All children must be signed in and out, daily, with parent initials and time. This is a Kansas State Health Department regulation. Staff will follow up, if parents do not sign their children out, with a phone call to verify pick-up. Children are not allowed to sign themselves in/out without a parent.

    ***Be sure to have your ID on you for verification when signing out***

    Participation in the program is a privilege, not a right. The ability of each participant to consistently practice positive life skills is essential to ongoing enrollment. The following set of non-negotiable standards for participation is designed to allow participants to self-regulate behavior. 1.) Respect the right of others to courtesy and personal space. 2.) Manage anger in appropriate ways. 3.) Respect and respond to adult authority. 4.) Accept differences among the group. 5.) Accept responsibility for own actions. These are reasonable expectations for any child participating in a group program setting. The actions of each individual influence the quality of participation for the entire group. Our goal is to facilitate successful participation for each child through the joint understanding, support, and practice of these positive life skills.


    Please make sure that you read over the parent handbook for our mission statement, goals, program description, hours, costs, holidays, payment schedule, and policy statements.

    JCPRD has pledged to the COMMIT TO HEALTH campaign!!!

    We know that kids who eat healthier and move more perform better in school. It's not just because teachers and administrators tell us so. Research shows that healthy kids get better grades, attend school more often and behave better in class.

    Experts recommend that kids get 60 minutes of physical activity every day. These minutes can come before, during, or after school as long as kids are staying active and having fun!

    Park and recreation agencies are the health and wellness leaders in their communities. Having a safe place to go after school, being active and eating healthy are vital services park and recreation agencies provide. That's why NRPA created Commit to Health—a campaign that supports the implementation and evaluation of Healthy Eating, Physical Activity (HEPA) standards in park and recreation sites across the country.

    Please help us encourage your children to live healthy lifestyles by eating healthy, and getting lots of physical activity!
