B.A.S.E. Daycare Program

The English Montreal School Board’s B.A.S.E. (Before and After School Enriched) Daycare Program is a Quebec government subsidized supervision service offered outside regular class hours for preschool and elementary school children. The B.A.S.E. Daycare Program’s objective is to enhance the lives of children aged four to 12 years old by providing them with enriching educational activities set in a relaxed, safe and nurturing environment. B.A.S.E. operates daily on the days that Gardenview School is open.

The day-to-day administration of the program and its staff is managed by the BASE Daycare Technician, Paquita Nanton (pnanton@emsb.qc.ca). She can also be reached at: (514) 788-0018.

Sporadic + Occasional:

Fees are based on the blocks the student attends, partial or full, and varies per school depending on the time of each daycare period.
Pedagogical Day:
(For a total of 10 hours.
Additional activity fees may apply)
$12.00 / day
A regular student is one who is registered and attending Daycare for a minimum of one to five days a week and a minimum of two periods a day. This applies to students who attend on a weekly basis and follow a fixed schedule.
A sporadic student is one who is registered and attending Daycare for one period a day (AM, LUNCH or PM). Please note that the lunch period is considered a block. A sporadic student is also someone who is registered and attends on a pedagogical day.
An occasional student is one who is registered but does not have a forecasted attendance and does not attend on a weekly basis. Daycare Services are needed for emergency purposes. The parent/guardian must give the daycare a 24-hour notice when possible and keep in mind that it is not a guarantee that their child(ren) will be put in the same daycare group as their classmates.
