In an effort to plan for the safest re-entry for our students, LMS will not be offering a Before School Program, aftercare will only go to 5:00 pm, there is no extended care until 6:00 pm and there is no aftercare on Thursdays. These programs may be added later in the 2020-2021 school year.

Welcome to BASP

The Before and After School Program (BASP!) at LMS offers toddlers through middle school students a place to play, be with friends, and learn.  Parents’ extended care needs are met while their children experience a familiar environment.
BASP is both the same and different from students’ classrooms.  The BASP classroom maintains such qualities as freedom of choice, mutual respect, exploration, movement, consistency, and kindness. BASP differs from the preschool, kindergarten, elementary and middle school classrooms by including non-Montessori materials and activities such as dress-up costumes, board and card games, toys, and puzzles.

For the 2020-21 school year, all BASP enrollments will be online. We will be offering BASP in four sessions: 
  • Session One: September 8, 2020 - October 31, 2020
  • Session Two: November 1, 2020 - December 18, 2020 
  • Session Three: January 5, 2021 - March 31, 2021
  • Session Four: April 2, 2021 - June 10, 2021 (not including Spring Break)
Online registration for Session One will begin on July 17, 2020. 
Registration for Session Two will open October 1, 2020.
Registration for Session Three will open November 30, 2020.
Registration for Session Four will open March 1, 2021.
This new arrangement will allow you to pay for each session separately as well as make changes from one session to the next.
