The Full Day Program is offered on specific days, and seasonal breaks, when children are not attending school.
On Full Days we incorporate a balance of social interaction, academic learning, engaging crafts, off site field trips and physical education to make the day exciting and meaningful to your child. Children are expected to respect their peers, the staff, and themselves. They are also encouraged to, "Go for the Gold!"
Lunch is supplied to students one time per week. It is noted on the Summer Menu of Events which days, and what is provided. Allergy student parents are strongly encouraged to pick their child's lunch or pack an appropriate lunch for those days.
Students will need to bring a lunch that does not require refrigeration or heating for the remaining days. All necessary utensils and drinks must be included as many of our lunches are eaten picnic style at the destination.
BASE supplies one snack per day, we request (but do not require) parents pack at least one additional snack per day.
During SUMMER Break- We have 4 Field Trips per week and we split by grade to visit different destinations! Incoming Kindergarten to incoming 2nd grades are with out K2 Group, they will be onsite every Friday. Incoming 3rd grade and up are in our 3+ group, they will be onsite every Wednesday.
Drop In's are not permitted during Summer Break- parents must sign up for sessions.
GRE BASE accepts students beginning at age 5 and ending on their 13th birthday!
Full Day Expectations
Parents must sign their children in to the program, through the provided ipads, with their designated pin. Pins are person specific and are not to be shared- each person on the child's account has a separate pin number. Staff can assist finding your pin, if needed.
Children may eat a -from home breakfast- at a designated table at any time until 8:30am.
Parents are encouraged to pack extra snacks each day. Lunch is only provided when noted on our enrollment site and on the GRE BASE Upcoming Events Page.
Children are to be dressed for the days events! Waivers -if needed- will be given to parents to sign.
ALL children must be signed in by 9am!
This allows us time to complete attendance, give our expectations for the day and use the restrooms before we leave for offsite trips.
Trip Information and a list of what your child needs for the day can be found on the GRE BASE Upcoming Events Page.
We return from all trips by 4pm (unless otherwise noted).
BASE closes promptly at 6pm. Parents are charged for late pick ups and 4 late pick ups result in a year long removal from the GRE BASE Program.
Blue Shirts must be worn during all Field Trips, children can wear them over their clothes, or as their clothes.
K2- Field Trip days are Monday through Thursday
3+ Field Trip days are Monday, Tuesday & Thursday. On Fridays your 3+ child will be given a red shirt to wear over their swim suit/ shirt. This shirt will be returned to BASE at the end of the day and laundered for the next Friday.
