The Lisle Park District's Remote Enrichment Center opened this past August to provide children in kindergarten through eighh grade with the support they need to learn remotely by encouraging social, mental, and physical well-being while maintaining academic focus and healthy habits.

The Remote Enrichment Center is located in the Lisle Park District Recreation Center at 1925 Ohio St. in Lisle.

 

Each child is given a quiet, separate station with plenty of space for interactive, virtual learning.

Structured time is allotted for schoolwork, meals, snacks, and necessary brain breaks.

Remote Enrichment Center participants can join in daily activities, such as sports, crafts, and science experiments. The youth can take advantage of Lisle Park District's large indoor spaces and the 100-plus acres just outside the recreation center doors in Lisle Community Park.

Volunteers from Trinity Lutheran Church in Lisle have partnered with the Lisle Park District at the Remote Enrichment Center by providing countless hours of assistance and support to students as they continue to navigate the challenges of remote learning and the unpredictable school year.

In addition to helping students with their various learning needs, this remarkable group of volunteers led by Amy Narot has provided students with a variety of enrichment activities, such as music, science, art, and games. Their presence and partnership have been a true asset, and each volunteer has significantly contributed to the success of the program.

The Remote Enrichment Center is devoted to making this time of year feel extra merry and bright for the children and look forward to seeing the twinkle in their eyes, even though they can't see the smile behind their masks! That is why they are offering a special offer to help lighten the load this holiday season for all families who are in need of remote learning assistance while schools are closed for in-person learning.
