Montreal - Friday, February 9, 2018

From students harvesting the spoils of their gardens, to learning about animals, media literacy and human rights, the Winter 2018 issue of the Touching B.A.S.E. on Daycare Matters newspaper has it all!

Published on February 8, 2018, the B.A.S.E. (Before and After School Enriched) Daycare Program team and its students shared their eight volume of the newspaper with the EMSB community.

The issue highlights the opening of the new B.A.S.E. Daycare program at Gardenview Elementary on the front page, as well as the Green Clubs’ zero waste garden harvest parties, and B.A.S.E.’s award-winning Supporting Children as Leaders Through Play it Fair! initiative.

Four pages of the newspaper are dedicated to a lively display of all the extracurricular activities and pedagogical days that took place throughout the daycares during the fall and beginning of winter. These pages showcase the written work of the Daycare students and staff and include stories of parents volunteering for a skating ped day at Gerald McShane and even a recipe for Stuffed Zucchini, or Zucchini Boats, to try at home!

The Green Initiative section hosts three full pages of news from the schoolyard gardens maintained by B.A.S.E. Daycare, with stories about the growing green community and development of a new garden at Pierre Elliott Trudeau, experimental hoop-houses (or mini green houses) at Parkdale and St. Monica and a certified “Wildlife Friendly Habitat” pollinator garden at Coronation.

The newspaper also includes a summary of the “No Such Thing as a Bad Kid” Annual Daycare Conference attended by Daycare Technicians and Educators and an article on a special Heritage Day Buffet at St. Gabriel.
