Wraparound Care at BASE

At BASE we aim to be a ‘home away from home’.  We firmly believe that free play is essential to children’s overall development.  It helps children to develop friendships, explore new ideas, problem solve and explore their creativity.  Our aim is to provide the play opportunities to enable them to achieve their full potential.

We encourage children to take an active role in BASE and always welcome their suggestions and ideas.
