The Before and After School Care (BASC) at WMPCS offers pre-k through high school students a place to learn, explore, play and be with friends. Parents’ extended care needs are met while their children experience a familiar, comfortable environment.
BASC is both the same and different from students’ classrooms. The BASC classroom maintains qualities like freedom of choice, mutual respect, exploration, movement, consistency, and kindness. While the program offers students the option to work on schoolwork or homework in middle and high school, it differs from classrooms by including non-Montessori materials and activities.
WMPCS offers Before and After School Care (BASC) for parents that either drop their children off early or pick them up later than the regular school day.
The BASC program offers numerous activities throughout the year including lessons on crafts, art, and many more.
Before and After School Care (BASC) Program Before and After School Care are services WMPCS provides to families of enrolled students in grades pre-K-12th grade. An application must be filled out for each family. The cost, times, and policies are listed below. BASC offers two types of enrollment. A regular attendee is defined as a student who attends the program on a weekly basis (one or more days a week on a regular basis). Regular attendees pay the weekly rate but do not pay for the days that the school is not in session. A drop in student is defined as a student who does not attend more than three days a month.
There is a one-time registration fee of $25.00 per family due at the time that the application is received in the office; also, an annual supply fee of $25.00 per child is required.
Before and After School Fees and Cost
The BASC rate is significantly less for Secondary II (High School) students because they are expected to be able to manage their time and actions with minimal supervision. If there is a disruption or if the student requires direct supervision, the Directors reserve the right to charge that family the regular rates for pre-k to 8th grade students. This can occur without warning depending on the severity of the infraction.
