Tuition is charged weekly on Thursday mornings for the following week, and is due by Friday. Payments can be made with a debit or credit card through your online account. We offer autopay for your convenience, so you can store your payment account and it will be charged weekly.
What if my child’s schedule changes?
Please make any schedule changes by Wednesday for the following week. Tuition is based on the schedule you have chosen in the system.
What if there are school closures or changes in scheduling?
During inclement weather conditions, it may be necessary to delay and/or close schools and childcare sites entirely. Champions will follow the delay schedule set by the school district. If school is cancelled, Champions will be cancelled. Please be sure to check with your local Champions contact to find out how scheduling is handled in the event of either an early release or late start, and always call ahead if you are unsure whether Champions will be in operation for these types of days.
