BASE Parking Reminder


  • Always Look Twice
  • Be watchful of the driveway area- this is used as a sidewalk from 8:45 to 9am and 4:00 to 4:15pm.
  • We chain off the parking area when it is unsafe to use, due to the child traffic volume.
  • Park within your lines- then 4 cars have the ability to park there.
  • Do Not pull all the way forward- allow children to safely walk In Front of cars.
  • Remember we are all here for the same reason- you can teach your children flexibility and tolerance when driving/parking.
  • If you have any concerns or issues take them directly to Sherry or Heather.
