With this blog, daycare staff, students and parents will get to see and share the wonderful things that go on in the EMSB daycares, from beading, dance and animation to film making, songwriting and green projects!
In January 2011, the English Montreal School Board Daycare Services launched a Journalism Program—a media initiative that includes a blog and a newspaper called Touching B.A.S.E. Both the blog and newspaper highlight the before and after school enrichment (B.A.S.E.) programs taking place in all 29 daycares, as well as other school activities that daycare students participate in.
Touching Base provides a platform where daycare students, staff and parents can stay connected.
The Journalism Program also aims at enhancing daycare students’ academic abilities and social skills. Students who participate in the Journalism Program strengthen their research, writing and communication techniques. Students also learn the fundamentals of print, radio, television and online journalism.
