Before/After School Care (BASEC)
Are you concerned about finding high quality but affordable care for your child before and after school while you're at work?
District 401 can help. We offer BASEC — short for “Before and After School Extended Care” — at both Elmwood and John Mills elementary schools.
What is BASEC?
We know how valuable such care is to working parents. In addition to providing a safe environment for your children, BASEC offers an enriching environment.
BASEC is not a babysitting service but instead offers:
► Supervised activities
► Homework time
► Nutritious snack
► Arts and crafts
► Safe, Caring Environment
We invite you to learn more about BASEC by visiting the links and background material below.
