Program Description  2019-20

Before/After SchoolExtension (BASE) is located in each elementary school and at Wayland MiddleSchool, providing before and after school programming for children in kindergarten through eighth grade. At the elementary schools, a K-3 after-school program is offered at Happy Hollow, Claypit Hill, and Loker School. Grades 4 and 5 pupils are transported to Wayland Middle School for an "Upper Elementary" BASE program, distinct from the Grades 6, 7, and 8 middle school program.

WSCP also offers BASE Explorers for kindergarten children enrolled in morning-only kindergarten. Explorers is a play-based program with enrichment activities, time for social interaction, and outdoor play (weather permitting). It ends at the regular school day dismissal time, but children may sign up for two, three, four, or five days.

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. 

At the elementary schools, flexible schedules are available, offering 2, 3, 4 or 5 afternoons until 3:30, 4:30, or 6:00 pm. More detailed information can be obtained by calling the WSCP office at 508-358-8617.

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. 

Picking Up in Two Locations
Families with children at two different BASE sites have a 15-minute leeway for travel time. For example, if a parent is picking up a child at Loker School at 4:45 pm, they would not be billed extra when picking up at Wayland Middle School at 5 pm.

2019-20 Enrollment
Registration will open soon, and be announced in the Wayland All Schools News, published via email on Wednesdays.

The registration site is:  

Contact Nicole Curci (508-358-8619) for information. When enrolling, families need to select the school and grade their child or children will be entering in the coming fall. 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.

Wednesday Afternoon Clean Team at Claypit Hill BASE
 This group decided to join an effort aimed at cleaning up the school. They straightened art displays hanging in the hallways, picked up litter, and made the school cleaner and brighter for all. As one child wisely said: "People may not notice that we did this, but they'd notice if we didn't."
