Welcome

Champions has a great solution for busy working families: activities that combine fun and learning, together with the safety and convenience of a high-quality program right inside your school. Champions offers a variety of group and individual activities designed to keep your child exploring and growing.

From art, dramatic play, math and science to problem-solving, language, motor skills and more, we help your child continue learning and developing essential life skills – whether school is in session or not.

Note: Break programs will be held at Henry Puffer. 

Before- and After-School: Grades K-6

Ages: 5 to 12 years
Dates: 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 School Years
Hours: 6:45 AM to bell and school dismissal to 6:00 PM

Champions provides busy, working families like yours the flexibility to extend the learning day before and after school for school-age children ages 5 to 12 years. With a balance of child-initiated and teacher-led activities, our programs serve your child’s wide variety of interests and skills by giving them choice.

Before-School: Preschool and Pre-K

Dates: 2019/2020 School Year
Hours: 6:45am-8:45am

Our program for early learners ages 3 to 5 years was created to provide a safe, fun, and enriching location for preschool-age children during out-of-school time hours. Children enrolled in this program attend the full-day preschool or kindergarten program offered by their school district, then come to Champions before the regular school day. With our age-appropriate activities, your child will strengthen skills in art, dramatic play, math and science, problem-solving, language, motor skills and more.

Winter Break

Dates: 2019/2020 School year: Dates based on school district's schedule
Hours: 6:45 AM - 6:00 PM

The Champions Winter Break program brings learning and fun together—and the best part? We help children build their potential by encouraging them to choose their own learning activities, work in groups, and stay active. This year, we will shine a spotlight on science, reptiles, or stage production, depending on the site. Families can come one day or every day—whatever works for them!

Spring Break

Dates: March 25 - 29, 2019 & 2019/2020 School year: Dates based on school district's schedule
Hours: 6:45 AM - 6:00 PM

Kids get a taste of math, science, sports and more during this weeklong program. During Spring Break at Champions, we get kids excited about summer with a sneak preview of all the excitement planned during our 12-week Summer Break. Parents love the convenience of having Spring Break programming at their regular Champions site, right inside their school.

Summer Break

Dates: June 12 - August 16, 2019 (dates subject to change based on school district's schedules)
Hours: 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM

We offer several fun and engaging themes over the course of the summer. Enroll in one week, a few weeks or participate in all 12 weeks – with an emphasis on meeting new friends and learning new things. Summer Break at Champions is easy for families because it takes place at many of the same neighborhood school locations as our before- and after-school programs, making it convenient for parents and familiar for kids.

How soon can my child start Champions?

Your child can attend our program as early as 48 hours after you complete the online enrollment process.

When is tuition due?

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.

When do I need to pick up my child?

Please be available to pick up your child before or as near the program end time as possible. To avoid late fees, arrive to collect your child within 15 minutes after the listed time. Fees will apply for extended tardiness as follows; $10.00 for the first 16-30min, and an additional $10 each 15min following that.
