FREE MODIFICATION TO YOUR EXISTING BASE ENROLLMENT
Already enrolled in BASE? BASE is encouraging families to reduce their days at BASE in order to take advantage of Empow and free up space for more families to enroll in BASE on at least some days. They are offering refunds for the days you want to cut your BASE enrollment and switch to Empow instead, though two day minimums still apply. You can cut your BASE enrollment either before or after you enroll with Empow by contacting Patricia Keefe at 508-358-6871 or Patricia_Keefe@waylandps.org.
