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.

We are offering BASP in four sessions and enrollment is done online.  This arrangement will allow you to pay for each session separately as well as make changes in session times based upon your childcare needs.
