Welcome to the EMSB B.A.S.E. Daycare blogosphere!
This blog is where we share news from our Before and After School Enriched (B.A.S.E.) Daycare programs in 30 EMSB Elementary Schools! The B.A.S.E. Daycare Program offers activities that fall within six educational cores:
- Homework & Snack
- Creative Arts
- Physical Activities
- Media Awareness
- Environmental Consciousness
- Specialty Programs
In January 2011, the English Montreal School Board Daycare Services launched a Journalism Program—a media initiative that includes this blog and a newspaper called Touching B.A.S.E on Daycare Matters which provides a platform where daycare students, staff and parents can stay connected.
The B.A.S.E Daycare Program is a bridge between the classroom and the home, a wonderful transition for both students and parents alike. It thrives at providing students with opportunities to grow and develop through project-based learning. Through a variety of programs offered, students learn life skills they may not have the chance to learn in class or even at home.
