BASE49 Overview


    D49 Kids' Corner has recently rebranded and changed their name to BASE49 Before and After School Expeditions.  We are in the process of updating all of our website to include our new logo and policies.

    BASE49 launched in 2014 as a Sand Creek Zone pilot initiative. After measuring its effectiveness and efficiencies, it expanded in 2017 to serve students in all coordinated elementary schools. The before and after school program provides quality care on scheduled school days, as well as during early release and assessment and professional development days for working families. We provide daily hands-on science and art experiences, homework help, and movement activities (soccer, jump rope, basketball). Base49 has a theme-based week comprised of choices that engage diverse age groups.

    Families rely on BASE49 to provide a warm, safe, fun and quality before and after school program for their children, kindergarten to fifth grade (generally ages 5-12). The program offers before and after school care in all of the District 49 coordinated elementary schools. 

    "Where children create, imagine, build and explore"

    Base49 provides each student with a fun-filled environment that engages and challenges children. We offer your child the choice to participate in one or all of our daily activities, such as art, drama, science, sports, group activities and homework help. We provide a daily exploration curriculum to keep children engaged with opportunities that help them make healthy choices, interact with friends.
