In preparation for next year, Before- and After-School (BASS) administration has established goals to pave the way for BASS to continue to be the top choice for families. Friendly staff, a safe environment, quality programming and staff training are just a few reasons to choose a BASS program.
The National AfterSchool Association’s fall newsletter highlights several ways before- and after-school programs benefit children including building self confidence, critical thinking, teamwork skills, problem solving skills and communication skills. Activities that lead to the development of these skills at BASS are STEM/STEAM, opportunities for leadership, choice time and clubs (such as photography, cooking, knitting, technology, book, adventure, sports and theater/dramatic play).
BASS focuses on continuous improvement in order to meet the needs of families. Goals for this year include a reasonable and comprehensive fee structure with comprehensive programming, inclusion, organizational restructure, early childhood, collaboration with school/community liaisons, professional development, reading/literacy and continued focus on STEM/STEAM.
