BASE Information

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 a sustainable program which is funded, supported, and maintained 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 academic, social, and physical development in a format that is more casual than the regular school day.  In order to attend BASE, children must independently take care of his or her toileting, grooming, and eating. Every child must be able to function in a group setting without additional adult supervision. 

All staff members receive an enhanced criminal background check and are CPR/First Aid certified. BASE professionals come to us from varied backgrounds. They 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 staff members.

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 BASE Facebook page you can follow for pictures and more information regarding the BASE program.

This year we will begin offering morning and afternoon childcare at SLE. Each site must have at least 10 students per day (morning and afternoon) for the program to operate. We look forward to sharing another amazing school year with your family!
