What is B.A.S.E Daycare?
St. Monica is very happy to a part of the EMSB B.A.S.E. (Before and After School Enriched) Daycare Program. More than just a regular daycare, B.A.S.E daycare has a solid pedagogical component. It offers an entire range of unique activities for children outside regular teaching hours. Each day, your child is immersed in a wholesome and nurturing environment designed to engage, and above all, have fun. Our animators help with homework, provide nutritional guidance and offer many activities not typically offered during the school day, like:
- radio and video production;
- sports activities;
- arts and crafts;
- creative writing;
- gardening in the St. Monica Garden; and
- a myriad of other cultural and social activities.
“We are putting the ‘baby-sitting’ image to rest and are instead promoting a service that focuses on nurturing and enriching children’s lives in a relaxed environment," explains EMSB B.A.S.E. Manager Rosa Fuoco.
St. Monica Daycare is open to children at all levels, pre-kindergarten to Grade 6. For more information on our Daycare services, please contact our Daycare Coordinator, Ms. Paquita Nanton
