HomeBASE:  Out of School Care Covering all of Your Bases

Temple Ohabei Shalom is thrilled to be launching HomeBASE, a new, innovative out-of-school-time program that combines afterschool childcare and enrichment programs for children from Kindergarten through 4th grade. HomeBASE offers integrated programming based on modern values, teaching children to care for themselves, each other, and the world around them.  Our staff provides a safe and fun-filled environment where children can always feel like they are at home.

HomeBASE provides a warm, caring environment beyond school hours where your children have the opportunity to play with friends and get homework out of the way before your family sits down to dinner.   Children can attend two to five days per week.  Programs are organized by grade level.  Our curriculum is based on a program model that focuses on learning enhancement, health, and recreation, while also building competence and confidence in children.  HomeBASE gives all children the opportunity to form long-lasting friendships that enhance their development, growth, and self-confidence.kaymbu-image-20152704-1027

Research has shown that the time between the end of the school day and the time a child goes to sleep have a significant impact on a child’s cognitive, social-emotional, and physical development.  We embrace a holistic approach to out-of-school care, providing guidance and support for each child’s individual needs during this critical time.  Children will feel supported exploring their interests in a relaxed social setting.  We encourage children to develop their sense of independence and awareness as we intentionally guide them towards growing healthy self-esteem.

Our Nurturing Staff:

Flexible scheduling and great programming mean nothing without quality staff. Our high quality staff understand that at the end of each day, your child’s experience at HomeBASE is directly tied to the relationships they develop both with their peers and adult mentors.  With that in mind, our staff are selected for their commitment to understanding each individual child, their passion for making a difference, and programmatic expertise.  To ensure that every child receives the attention that they deserve we employ a 10:1 ratio of children to staff.
