Where Fun and Friendly Care Revolve Around Your Children!

Welcome to the Joliet Park District Recreation and Enrichment Program, a place where children can be active, be with friends, have good experiences, be independent, learn new things, and have a great time in a supervised and safe environment. Our program includes sports, arts and crafts, games, reading, storytelling, music and study time.

The Joliet Park District, in partnership with Troy School District #30c, is offering before and after school extended day enrichment programs beginning the first full day of school in August for the 2016-2017 school year. Both the AM & PM enrichment programs are designed to provide recreational and educational before and after school activities for children PreK through 4th grade in a safe learning environment.

  • Program Philosophy

    Troy Trojans is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for children who need learning activities before and after school. The Joliet Park District structures the program to be relaxed and recreational to counter-balance the day's educational activities. The staff is sensitive and flexible in order to meet the needs of both children and parents. Special emphasis will be placed on tailoring the program to meet each child's energy level.
