(Before school is offered for K-5 only). At the elementary schools, a K-4 after-school program is offered at Happy Hollow, Claypit Hill, and Loker School. Grade 5 pupils are transported to Wayland Middle School for a Grades 5-8 program.
Children enrolled in BASE have use of school gymnasiums, libraries, cafeterias, computers or computer labs, assigned classrooms, playgrounds, and playing fields. Daily activities vary and are always fine-tuned to reflect children's changing interests and abilities. Flexible schedules are available, offering 2, 3, 4 or 5 afternoons until 4:30 or 6:00. Kindergartners may enroll in a Kindergarten BASE program, which begins upon the completion of morning Kindergarten.

Please note that Before-School is the only program that offers a drop-in option but children must be registered with the BASE morning program. After-School programs are enrolled on a contractual basis, and there is a two-day minimum.

Outdoor Exploration is an important part of afternoon BASE.
Each morning there is a special activity offered. It could be sculpture, painting, a STEM activity, or community service projects, such as decorating bags for a homeless mission that distributes sandwiches on Boston Common. Gym and outdoor time are also part of the morning schedule.
Special events at BASE are unique to each site, but all programs come together occasionally. A Fall Festival highlight included a visit from baby rabbits, goats, and other farm animals. There is an annual BASE Family Night that may include entertainment or activities.
At early morning BASE, K-5 students are all together, creating opportunities for kindergarteners like Grace to interact with fifth grade girls like Amalie and Samantha.
VACATION WEEK PROGRAMS - February and April
During February and April vacation weeks, Wayland School Community Programs offers programs held at Loker School for children in Kindergarten through Grade Five. Each day offers a mix of free play and scheduled activity periods for cooking, science, arts and crafts, active games, music, and more. Children also enjoy special events daily. A typical week might include field trips for mini-golf, bowling, roller skating, or indoor playgrounds.
In February 2016, we had a special visitor from STEM Beginnings of Shrewsbury. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programs have been offered since the fall of 2015 to K-2 students through WSCP. Based on their popularity, WSCP Director Pat Keefe invited STEM to be a part of the February Vacation Week curriculum. The collage shown here reflects the level of engagement and creativity children showed.
