BASE stands for: Before & After School Enrichment. BASE offers on-site childcare at AE, BKE, GE, JBE, SLE & TLE before and after school, Monday - Friday.

BASE is an extracurricular sustainable program which is funded and supported by family fees. BASE accepts eligible ICCP recipients; we are an Idaho State licensed childcare provider. BASE is designed to provide quality and affordable care in a safe and familiar school setting. We open and accept children at 6:30am until the school day begins. After school, we are open until 6:00pm. Hours are strictly enforced.

BASE provides opportunities for each student to have fun experiences conducive to his or her emotional, social, and physical development in a format that is more casual than the regular school day. Every child must be able to function in a group setting without additional adult supervision.

All LJSD BASE employees receive an enhanced criminal background check and are CPR/First Aid certified. BASE professionals come to us from varied backgrounds and have experience as teachers in childcare centers, classroom aides, coaches, leaders of youth groups and more. BASE staff has ongoing professional development through training that covers specialized topics such as child development, organizational skills, safety issues, activity planning, first aid, legal issues, and other topics that enhance their already stellar childcare skills. We hire those who have a passion for seeing children succeed and grow. Your child matters to each of our employees.

BASE is open on all regular school days.  BASE PLUS is an option on many teacher in-service & conference days, as well as on most school vacation days, for an additional charge. Be sure to watch for information regarding BASE Plus at your child’s site. We also have a Facebook page  you can follow for pictures and more information regarding the BASE program.

Our elementary school sites are filling up quickly so be sure to enroll quickly to reserve a spot on our enrollment list or waitlist. We look forward to sharing another amazing school year with your family!
