If school or site is closed you will not be charged tuition those days.

  • What is your discipline policy?
    BASES has specific rules which will be demonstrated consistently during the year. These rules will be used to set limits necessary to insure the safe management and to protect the rights of individual children. Staff will always try to use positive guidance and redirection in working with the child. A serious problem is defined as one in which a child is hampering the smooth flow of the day by requiring constant one-on-one attention; is inflicting physical or emotional harm on other children or themselves; is physically abusing staff or is otherwise unable to conform to the rules and guidelines of BASES. When conflicts occur, it is our goal to work with the individual child, listen to what they have to say and help resolve the conflict through effective communication. In correcting a child who has exceeded a limit, two steps will be taken. First a child is given a verbal warning or reminded what the rule or limit is, so the child has a chance to change their behavior. If the problem persists or, in case of more serious incidents, an adult will step in and redirect the child to another activity, and parents will be notified by staff with a phone call or in person at pick-up (depending on the severity of the incident). The reasons for the limit will be explained again to the child in terms that they can understand. When a child becomes physically abusive, staff will remove them from the activity in which they are participating. Staff will talk with the child until they are ready to rejoin the group. If necessary, the child may be physically separated from the other children in a quiet area of the classroom for a period of time not to exceed five minutes. No child will ever be removed from the classroom and left unattended. All minor events will be logged on a behavior log, while major events will be recorded on an incident report and placed in the child(ren)’s file. If discipline problems persist more than three times (may be sooner depending on the event), the child will be suspended and parents/guardians will be asked to attend a conference with the staff to assist in working out an equitable solution to the problem. A parent's unwillingness to cooperate will result in the removal of the child from BASES. If, after two conferences, the problems persist, the child may be asked to leave BASES. If a child is asked to leave BASES, they will not be allowed back into BASES without subsequent approval from the BASES Program Director. If a child is unhappy with BASES, every attempt will be made by staff to help the child ease into BASES. Staff will also be in contact with the parents for suggestions.
