What is BASE?

Before & After School programs were initiated by working parents of elementary aged children. It was their feeling that this type of program would best serve their needs and the needs of their children. The phenomenon swept the country and now there are programs established across the nation. Many programs have expanded to include before school, vacations, and summer programs.

Adams12 Five Star Schools implemented the childcare programs in the mid 1980's, as the District and the community saw the need for programs to be offered. The programs were set up geographically and offered to all students of Adams 12 Five Star Schools. The programs have grown and are now offered in nearly all of the District's elementary schools.

The purpose of the BASE Programs is to provide safe, quality, affordable child care in the school setting; whereby each individual child is enriched with various experiences conducive to their academic, social, and physical development. These self supporting programs are offered to any child enrolled in an Adams 12 Five Star Elementary School.

Tarver Elementary's BASE Program Mission Statement

BASE staff at Tarver Elementary are dedicated to continuing the education process before and after the school day ends for your child. As professionals we understand that children learn through play, that is what we do here at Tarver BASE, we play math games, we play reading and writing games, we play with science, and we play physically and we learn about good nutrition at the same time. When we are finished playing, we play again, together.
