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. Program hours are listed below.
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   - Two Registration Periods in April        Updated Info!

Currently enrolled in BASE or on the Waitlist?

BASE enrollment does not carry over from year to year. Your enrollment may not be guaranteed if you don't sign up in the first registration period, which is specifically for current BASE families and those on the wait list.

A Few Important Points

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. 

Registering early is always advisable since many programs reach maximum enrollment quickly. Wait lists are established.
