Register Online 

Residents and non-residents may register online. However, to receive resident rates, you must provide proof of residency. 

Which programs are eligible for online registration?

All programs that have a code number assigned. 

How do I activate my online account?

Existing households within our system will be issued a temporary User Name and Password. Upon your first time to log-in, you will be prompted to change your password and answer two security questions. New households need to complete the online enrollment form. Confirmation of your enrollment will be emailed to you within one business day. Upon approval from parks and recreation (as we will need to confirm your residency), you may begin registering for programs. The first time you log on, you will be prompted to change your password if you would like to do so. 

What else can I do online? 

You can browse all programs offered and view up-to-date enrollment numbers. If you are registered for a program that offers a multiple payment schedule, you may pay your outstanding balance online under your “Household Account”. You also have the ability to review all the programs for which you have registered, reprint receipts/invoices, print out activity calendars and childcare statements. 

Can I be placed on the wait list online and do I have to pay for it?

You can be placed on the wait list online and you will not be charged for the program at that time. We will contact you if we can enroll you and at that time you will be required to pay for the program. 

Can I process a refund or class transfer online? 

Refunds and transfers cannot be processed online but you may contact us at 847-438-5146 or stop by our office at The Paulus Park Barn to fill out a refund/transfer request form.
