B.A.S.E – Before & After School Enrichment

Our Mission

BASE provides quality extended care for students of Casa, IMO, and IMHS creating continuity of our Montessori culture and community.

BASE is full for all age groups.

 Please email base@innovationmontessori.com with any questions and/or to be added to our waiting list. 

Waiting List Information:

There is no specified length of time that you need to be on the list to be offered a space.

We will aim to contact families 2 weeks before any given space, as parents are only required to give us 2 weeks’ notice of their withdrawal.

Only once the withdrawal is confirmed in writing can we begin to find a family for the space.

Once a family is emailed from the waiting list, they are given a specified time frame of 48 hours to reply and express continued interest in the space available.

From the families that reply within the specified time, the family with the highest seniority date will have first official refusal of the available space.

Once your child is officially offered a space, if you would like to accept it, you will be required to remit payment for the family registration fee and the first months’ tuition.

Sandbox Registration and Accounts Management System

To fill out a registration form for our Before & After School Enrichment program, please email base@innovationmontessori.com. We are currently full. Please see waiting list information above.

Violation of the late fee policy may, at the absolute discretion of the program manager and administration, result in termination of childcare services. If a child is left past 6:00PM without notification from parents, all attempts will be made to contact the parents and emergency contacts for immediate pick-up. If no contact can be made by 6:30, Police Services and/or Family and Children’s Services will be notified.

Innovation Montessori Ocoee provides financial assistance for a limited number of families who cannot afford the full cost of the BASE program. Scholarships are first come, first served and are based on household income and the number of occupants in the household. We require supporting documentation to verify household income and size. Recipients are expected to be responsible for a portion of the program fees. Qualification for scholarships is for the 2019-20 school-year only. Please email base@innovationmontessori.com for further information.

*Drop-in care is first come, first served. Space is limited – Email base@innovationmontessori.com in advance and receive approval in order for your child to attend BASE as a drop-in participant. Each drop-in must be approved prior to your child(ren) participating in our program.

Payment Policy

At the time of registration, you will be prompted to include a form of payment. All payments will be automatically processed on the 1st of every month. Invoices will be emailed 2-3 days prior to the 1st of each month.

In the event that payment is returned from your bank or credit card, you will be notified. Another form of payment must be remitted by the 3rd day of each month in order to avoid late charges or removal of your child from the program.

Payments are due on the 1st of each month.

A $15 late fee will be charged to the account if payment is not received by end of day on the 3rd day of the month. After the 3rd day of the month, your child(ren) will be withdrawn from the program if payment has not been received.

Please do not send payment in with your child.

In most cases, payment will be automatically withdrawn. You may review account information, make updates regarding payment options, or make manual payments in the Parent Portal. 

For assistance with your account, please email base@innovationmontessori.com.

Inclement Weather

If the school closed due to inclement weather, we will not hold Before & After School Enrichment. Parents/Guardians must pick up their child at the school. No credit, refund or payment transfer is given for closings due to inclement weather or emergency situations.

Notices must be provided to the program manager in person or via email at base@innovationmontessori.com

Drop-in

Please email base@innvoationmontessori.com to request care if you have an unexpected need for care or a need for care on a predetermined day or days that are not recurring. Drop-in space is available on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited. As a result, you must receive an approval via email from BASE for your child to have a spot in our program. Please do not send your child to before and/or after school enrichment if you have not received an approval email and remitted payment. Email your request as soon as you know you will need care. Space is limited. Consequently, your request may not be honored.

The latest time to request drop-in care for the morning is 4:00PM the day prior via email. To request drop-in care for the afternoon, the latest time to email BASE is 2:00PM the day you need care.

Examples of Drop-in:

  • You need care on 8/19, 11/6, and 1/24.*
  • You have a meeting on Monday after work one day and Wednesday the next week, but they are not recurring, regularly-scheduled meetings.*

*These cases are considered drop-in. Email base@innovationmontessori.com as soon as you are aware of your needs. If we can accommodate your request, we will place your child(ren) on our drop-in schedule and respond with an approval and invoice via email. Your invoice must be paid prior to care received.

Drop-in Care is limited and scheduled on a first come, first served basis. 

Emergency Situations – Before and After School Enrichment is not an emergency care provider. You MUST notify IMO Administration immediately if your family experiences a true emergency preventing you from picking up your child on time. Please call the school at 407-654-2045 and make arrangements to have your child picked up as soon as possible.
