The BASE application is online.  There is a $55 per family registration fee for BASE, whether a family is selecting a contract or non-contract (drop-in) option.  

Families are strongly encouraged to enroll in one of the 10-month contracts listed below, as space in the program for families that are not on a contract cannot be guaranteed. All parents must consent to BASE payments coming from their School Admin account. Our BASE bookkeeper, Kristin Bentler (, will set up contract amounts to automatically deduct on the date of your tuition contract each month.
