Wayland School Community Programs

For Half Day Kindergarten Students…

An Optional Extended Day program

  For Immediate Release

 For children attending half-day kindergarten in the fall, Wayland School Community Programs offers an optional extended day program through BASE (Before/After School Extension).

 It begins at 12:05 pm and concludes at the end of the regular school day.  Unlike the district’s optional full day program, children may attend the BASE program for two, three, four, or five days.

 The school district will have three traditional, half-day classes in the fall, one in each of the elementary schools. The other rooms will offer the optional, full-day program due to enrollment demands for a five-day, full day Kindergarten option.

The BASE program’s curriculum includes story time, science, nature exploration, gym and outdoor games, music and movement, and art. Blocks, Legos, MagnaTiles, K’nex, and other manipulatives offer ample opportunities for children to build and create alone, with a classmate, or with a group.  Children eat lunch together in the cafeteria.

 BASE offers additional extended day options, opening at 7 am daily for K-5 students. Afternoon programs for K-8 begin when the school day ends and conclude at 6 pm.  Two enrollment blocks are offered:  until 4:30 pm or 6 pm.

Optional February and April vacation week programs with field trips and special events daily are available. 

For information about registering, contact (508-655-0832) or (508-655-6403).

The BASE program uses an online registration system. 

The registration site is:

Reminder: If enrollment has closed, online registration site will not be accessible. Contact Rosemarie Teti (508-655-6403) or Nicole Curci (508-655-0832) for information about possible program openings and they will reopen the site on a case-by-case basis.)

When enrolling, families need to select the school and grade their child or children will be entering in the coming fall. There are separate forms for before and after school programs, so if a child will be attending both programs, two forms will need to be completed. A separate registration form is needed for each child in a family. Your registration will be complete when you pay the $60 per family annual registration fee. As you conclude the online registration process, you will see a link to make the registration fee payment online.

Registering early is always advisable since some programs fill quickly.
Before (K-5) and after school programs (K-4) are held in Claypit Hill, Happy Hollow and Loker Schools. At Wayland Middle School, there is an after school program for Grades 5 – 8. Fifth graders are bused to Wayland Middle School.

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. 

Mask-Making was one activity during February Vacation week. Children also enjoyed learning about the phases of the moon, and drew pictures showing what the moon will look like on their birthdays. They also learned about popular children's names and toys in Venezuela. They made a popular toy: ball-in-a-cup.

Mask Making

Outdoor time is an important part of each day in the BASE program. Children enjoy the play structures, games like football, basketball, soccer, four-square, or baseball. It's also a great time to interact with BASE staff and each other.

TV Production
TV Production is one of the after-school activities offered. Here, twin brothers Sean and Adam prepare to go on camera and present SportsTalk, a report they co-wrote about football positions. Students travel to the WayCAM (cable access) studio at Wayland High School for production sessions.

Scripts are displayed on a teleprompter for the "talent," and a member of the tech crew operates it in the control room.

Each program is unique in what it offers. 

The Middle School enjoys visiting elderly residents at Traditions, walking to Cochituate Village locations, and bowling or mini-golf.

Happy Hollow's community service projects include making sandwiches for a homeless mission and brightening the recipients' day by decorating the bags with drawings, stickers, and supportive messages.
