The Before and After School Enriched (B.A.S.E.) Daycare Program is a bridge between the classroom and the home, and thrives at providing students with opportunities to grow and develop through project-based learning. One of its cores is Environmental Consciousness, and within that core students participate in activities where they learn about the environment, gardening and cooking.

The Green Initiative Team provides programming and consulting for B.A.S.E. Daycare Schools and the English Montreal School Board at large. Some of the services we provide are grant writing, school garden consulting and potential construction as well as workshops for staff and students alike.
