Before and Afterschool Enrichment - BASE

Before & After School Enrichment (BASE)

Welcome to the 2022-23 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.  Indoor time may include study time, coloring, reading, guided themed activities, etc.

Registration

“Thank you all for your patience. Below is the highly anticipated link to the BASE interest form for the 2022-23 school year. The link will go live at 12 noon on Wednesday, July 13th. This helps us gage interest in the program so that we can place appropriate staff for each grade level before accepting applications. Space will be limited and dependent on space and staffing. When your application is accepted in the coming weeks, you will be sent the link to the BASE program waivers and updated BASE Parent Handbook- this is the final step to secure your spot in the BASE Program. Once spaces are filled to capacity, if you are not accepted into the program, you will be automatically placed on the waitlist for your student’s grade level. You will be notified as soon as spaces become available. There is a one-time non-refundable application fee of $60 billed at time of application.”

Family Emergencies

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.

Questions/Concerns/Comments

You may contact Courtney Hargrove, the program manager, at base@innovationmontessori.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.
