B.A.S.E. Daycare Program

Our educators design recreational activities that contribute to the children’s overall development and encourage social skills such as respect, cooperation and openness to others. We also contribute to their academic achievements by creating an appropriate environment for doing their homework. We promote a healthy lifestyle for children via outdoor play and a healthy snack.

B.A.S.E. daycare is open to all students on Pedagogical days. However, advance registration is required for your child to attend on those days. For pedagogical days, the daycare organizes various activities to ensure that the children have a fun day off from school.

For more information regarding our daycare, please call (514) 279-0232.
