About the Daycare

The Gerald McShane BASE Daycare Program is a day supervision service, organized outside class hours for preschool and elementary school children.

The main objective of our qualified team of educators is to guide the children through educational experiences conductive to the social, emotional and physical growth of each child. Our daycare offers a caring, safe learning environment that promotes respect.

Our daycare is in compliance with the Quebec Education Act and the bugetary rules of the Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS).

Snack Program

In order to improve motivation, learning performance and concentration, the daycare provides students with a healthy nut-free snack. Students will develop healthy eating habits that will lead to living a healthier lifestyle.

Homework Period

Students are allotted specific time every day to begin their homework in a quiet and studious environment. Daycare educators are at hand to assist students with their assignments. Parents should still verify their child's homework at home.


Upon completion of homework period the daycare also offers a variety of enriching extra-curricular activities in keeping with the needs and interests of the children. All activities are free of charge and supervised by qualified staff.

Children can participate in activities such as:

  • Dance
  • Music
  • Glee Club
  • Sports Ball
  • Film Making
  • Environmental Awareness
