Why Schools and Districts Partner with Champions

Help your community find its groove again! 

The school year looks more different now than we could have imagined, but one thing’s for sure: Your students, families, teachers, and staff have risen to the challenge in uncharted circumstances. As everyone adapts to the new responsibilities and stress that come with an atypical school year, community becomes more important than ever. 

That’s why Champions expanded our programs to support any district’s or school’s distance learning, hybrid schedules, and everything in between. Our all-day, half-day, and before- and after-school programs create small, stable learning environments that help children stay on track with their studies and give working parents flexibility and peace of mind.   

Create a safe space to rebuild learning communities. 

Reimagine what a learning program can provide. 

Champions gives students what they need to make sense of the world with creativity and curiosity, while helping teachers and entire families adapt and thrive.

We support districts and schools with customizable programs that fit any school schedule. Just like our before- and after-school programs, our new all-day and half-day options help students stay engaged in their learning and support teachers’ classroom goals. 

Together, we’ll customize your Champions experience to whatever your district or school needs, including: 

  • Full-day programs to support your teachers’ online distance learning sessions. 
  • Half-Day programs to fill the gaps in hybrid class schedules. 
  • Before- and after-school programs for traditional school schedules. 
  • School break programs to keep the learning going all year. 
  • Employer-sponsored child care options to welcome teachers and staff back to class. 

We’ll use your existing space and take all the operational oversight off your hands so you can focus on your staff and students. Your school and community will benefit from: 

  • Turnkey enrollment and scheduling that won’t affect budgets. 
  • Local teacher hiring using an assessment of experience and qualifications designed with Gallup. 
  • Continuous improvement based on engagement metrics. 

More than after-school care

In a world changed by a health crisis, the ways we teach must evolve. So we built special curriculum for kids and resources for teachers to help students make sense of change. Our teachers are trained in trauma-informed care and anti-bias education to create positive classroom cultures that help students build resilience and rise to this moment. 

Champions is a structured and safe place to be during remote schooling, before and after school, or no-school days. Students will focus on distance learning and return to a routine that helps them do what they do best—be kids!  

When the schoolwork’s done, we bring the fun with student-led projects that complement your curriculum and help them safely reconnect with friends, including: 

  • Project-based STEM and art activities structured around skills needed to succeed in the classroom and community. 
  • Recreational activities indoors and out, with opportunity to partner on special class options like dance, yoga, or strength and fitness. 
  • Mindfulness time and activities to help kids meet challenges with problem-solving, optimism, empathy, growth mindset, and ingenuity. 
  • A Tech Track including coding, digital citizenship, engineering, art, and design that fosters responsible technology practices. 
  • Teachers trained to keep kids on track with their distance learning and help them work through trauma. 
  • Customized schedules to meet every child’s needs and motivate them throughout the day. 

Families know the quality of care and education Champions offers. Our exceptional health and safety measures have kept our doors open since the beginning of the pandemic to help them when they need us most. Watch how our teachers create safe and clean sites for families.

As part of the nation’s largest provider of child care, KinderCare Education, Champions is here for the whole family through our elementary school programs and our early learning programs at KinderCare Learning Centers.

When parents ask, “Should I go back to work?” their child’s safety and development shouldn’t be one more worry. No matter what type of care families need, we help them meet more moments with confidence. 

Families will find clean and safe spaces where children thrive with: 

  • Small, stable cohort groups of the same friends and teachers every day to foster health, trust, and community. 
  • Industry-leading health and safety measures developed by our pediatric medical advisors that follow CDC guidelines. 
  • An accredited program recognized for excellence in curriculum, learning environments, care, safety, and organization. 
  • Teachers trained in distance learning platform support, anti-bias education, and trauma-informed care. 
  • A return to normalcy so the whole family can find balance again.
