It Is About You!

At Parks, Recreation and Community Education, It Is About You

By Dolf Moon, Director of Parks, Recreation & Community Education

Even with cool temperatures, summer is right around the corner. The PRCE brochure is out and has plenty of opportunities for you and your family. We look forward to seeing your family at the Hutchinson Aquatic Center this summer. Your kids may be interested in the four free Passport to the Parks opportunities included in our brochure. We also have a variety of sports camp offerings led by the Tiger Coaching Staff.

This summer you will want to take advantage of our many community playgrounds. We encourage you check out our parks, trails and fitness park information at www.ci.hutchinson.mn.us or maybe even try geocaching. Perhaps consider registering for our new Youth Camps located at Rotary Park.

The PRCE Department offers a wide variety of educational and recreational opportunities to district residents. The uniqueness of the program starts with you. If you have an interest and do not see a program that meets your needs, let us know. We will try to arrange a program. If you have a skill, you would like to share with others, give us a call. We are currently putting together the fall/winter brochure

PRCE reaches out to the entire community whether you are a parent with a preschool child (Early Childhood Family Education), a student taking a program after school, participating in Middle School athletics, an adult in a class or league, a senior citizen dropping by our center there’s something for all ages. PRCE also provides Adult Basic Education opportunities. Whether you dropped out of high school, are looking for a new job or trying to receive your GED, we can help. If you are looking to use a facility, a park shelter or a ball field, we can help.

Parks, Recreation and Community Education understand that “community” extends from neighborhoods to the world. We are flexible enough to meet the needs of a fast-changing society. We can extend the reach of education and bring people together in a common purpose. We like getting people involved in our schools. We can become partners in addressing community needs. We do this by offering a scope of activities and services that evolve with new generations of people and technologies, making the community a learning center open for people of all ages.

Parks, Recreation and Community Education reaches out to be inclusive. Every day it proves that the community and our schools, working together, can be greater than the sum of their individual parts.

The Importance of Early Intervention

By Lisa Kraft, Director of Special Services

Early identification of developmental concerns in infants and toddlers can significantly improve outcomes for children, families, and communities. Early physical, social, and emotional development provides the foundation for language and cognitive skills. During the first three years of life, a child’s brain is the most flexible in their ability to learn and change. Therefore, early intervention is the most effective when provided earlier in life.

Help Me Grow Minnesota (http://helpmegrowmn.org) is a statewide system of collaboration to best identify infants and toddlers who are in need of early intervention services. The website also provides valuable information to families regarding developmental milestones. Physicians, hospitals, parents, childcare providers, public health, social service and others can refer a child to Help Me Grow. This referral is immediately forwarded to the appropriate school district. The district will contact the family to arrange for a screening or evaluation to determine if a child is eligible for infant and toddler intervention or preschool special education services.

Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) for infants and toddlers in the Hutchinson Public Schools provides early intervention to children who show developmental delays in the areas of cognitive development, speech and language, motor skills, adaptive skills, vision or hearing loss, or social and emotional skills. Trained ECSE teachers and specialists work with the parents and the child to meet developmental and educational goals through an Individual Family Service Plan. These services are delivered to the child primarily in his or her home or place of childcare.

How To Make a Special Education Referral for an Infant or Toddler

If you have concerns about an infant or toddlers’ development or if your child was born with a significant medical condition you can make a referral. Visit the Help Me Grow Minnesota website (http://helpmegrowmn.org) and click on Refer a Child to complete the referral process. As well, a referral can be made directly to Hutchinson Public Schools Early Childhood Special Education Department at West Elementary by calling 234-2619. The ECSE team is ready to help you and your child work toward meeting developmental milestones. If you have any further questions about early childhood special education services in Hutchinson Public Schools please contact Lisa Kraft, Director of Special Services at 234-2618.
