Before & After School Enrichment (BASE)
Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! We look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new families.
BASE is designed to meet the needs of working families with children enrolled at IMO/Casa. We offer a welcoming atmosphere in which our nurturing staff encourages children to explore and build on individual interests and skills, participate in group activities, play sports and games, socialize with peers and adults, and relax and unwind.
Our mission is to provide a quality extended day program that complements the Montessori school day by offering enriching activities designed to develop peer-to-peer bonding, promote community involvement, encourage multicultural appreciation, and build social and emotional skills.
Participating children are invited to enjoy indoor and outdoor activities each day. BASE complements the school day by providing the opportunity for the children in our program to explore and build on individual interests and skills. Children may relax and unwind and socialize with peers and program team members. Please be aware that we will follow requirements set forth by IMO/Casa under the guidance of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Department of Education (DOE), the Department of Health (DOH) and Orange County Public Schools (OCPS). Activities available will depend on the most up to date recommendations available to our team. Weather permitting, participants will be provided outside time each day. When inside and outside participants will practice physical distancing and wear masks. Indoor time may include study time, coloring, reading, guided themed activities, etc.

You will be notified once your application has been processed and approved. Students who do not receive a spot will automatically be placed on the waitlist.
Once your registration has been confirmed and you have received an invitation to the Parent Portal, you may access your Sandbox account by going to parentportal.runsandbox.com and logging in with your existing username and password or you may create a username and password if you do not already have one. The Parent Portal can be used to make payments and update billing information, edit Emergency Contacts, and makes changes to Medical information, etc.
Before & After School Enrichment is not an emergency care provider. BASE is prepared to care for our registered participants as scheduled only. You MUST notify IMO Administration immediately if your family experiences a true emergency preventing you from picking up your child from school on time. Please call the school at 407-654-2045 to speak with someone in the front office and make arrangements to have your child picked up as soon as possible.
You may contact Ashley Yorks, the program manager, at email@example.com with any questions or concerns you may have regarding BASE.
We welcome communication from our families. Please feel free to offer suggestions via email at any time. Your interest and input help us to establish policies and procedures that enhance daily activities.
BASE is seeking dynamic, inspired individuals to fill part-time positions in our Before & After School Enrichment Program. Ideal candidates will enjoy working with children in a child-centered environment, be self-motivated, have strong communication skills, work wholeheartedly, and not be afraid to take initiative.
