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 three sessions: 
  • Session One: September 2020 - November 2020
  • Session Two: December 2020 - February 2021 
  • Session Three: March 2021 - June 2021 (not including Spring Break)
Online registration for Session One will begin on July 15, 2020. 
Registration for Session Two and Three will open 6 weeks prior to the session date.
This new arrangement will allow you to pay for each session separately as well as make changes from one session to the next.
