BASE Camp offers a few preschool programs throughout Larimer County. We offer morning programs on-location at Redfeather and Stove Prairie Elementary School, as well as a program in Wellington at the Boys and Girls Club of Larimer County location there. We also provide after-school care preschool programming at Hiatt Farms in Fort Collins. We work with the Poudre School District to provide the Colorado Preschool Project to support school readiness at these school that are in outlying areas where preschool program options are very limited.
Staff are well trained and qualified to serve all children within our program. Annual training requirements and a 1-to-10 ratio for adults to children help ensure that we maintain a high quality of care for all of the children in our programs. Staff members are either credentialed or in school working toward their degrees. Each staff member is screened through the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Colorado Dept. of Human Services.
These programs provide academic, social, artistic, communication, and safety benefits. Children enjoy mental and physical education and make friends in a safe environment. Through our programs the burdens of working families are eased, the school district has a valuable partner in their educational efforts, and the community benefits from engaged children and working parents. Children gain confidence and self-esteem, while learning and playing with their peers in a safe place.
