All BASE registration will be 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 complete/submit monthly BASE calendars by the 25th day of the prior month. All parents must consent to the BASE payment coming from their FACTS account. Our BASE bookkeeper, Kristin Bentler (, will set up contract amounts to be automatically deducted on the last business day of each month, and Drop-In billing will be due the 15th (or the next business day if the 15th falls on a weekend) after month-end.
