Enrichment Classes

In addition to its wide-range of activities, the BASE program also offers a variety of enrichment programs and classes. From sports to private music lessons and academic enrichment classes to cooking courses, for an additional fee, your child can choose the subjects that most interest them. Each season, we offer new and exciting enrichment subjects. For information about our fall classes, read on! All of our enrichment programs and classes are offered in-house, which means no extra driving for you! We’ll take care of escorting the children to and from each activity.

All of our enrichment classes are open to all school-age children, regardless of whether or not they are enrolled in the BASE program.
