Lightning Bolt BASE Program

Lightning Bolt Before/After School Enrichment (BASE)


We serve children and parents by providing a safe, enriching, convenient, and affordable school-age childcare program.  Our on-site program features indoor and outdoor activities that keep your child engaged and safe while giving them plenty of time to work on their homework.  A perfect fit for working parents or parents who need additional time before or after school.  The safe alternative for school-aged childcare.

The Lightning Bolt BASE Program is staffed by Ben Franklin Academy employees who have all been screened and have undergone strict background checks through the State of Colorado.  In addition, our program utilizes scanning technology for child check-in/check-out procedures to guarantee a safe and secure environment.

All BASE participants MUST have a current and complete  APPLICATION on file in order to be accepted into the program.  Applications and payment must be returned prior to first day of attendance.
