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 I want to change my child’s care schedule?
Flexibility is the magic word for busy families like yours! At Champions, you can adjust your child’s schedule from week to week, with options for full-time or part-time care.
Every Wednesday, we lock in the schedule and prepare invoices for the following week. So, if you want to adjust the days your child will be joining us, make sure to save changes by the Wednesday prior to the week of care you’re scheduling.
If your child attends our program and you haven’t scheduled by the Wednesday prior, you will be charged a drop-in fee at a higher rate.
What if there are planned or unplanned school closures?
During inclement weather, it may be necessary to delay and/or close schools and our child care sites entirely. Champions will follow the delay schedule set by the school district: If school is cancelled, Champions will be cancelled.
However, Champions is often open all day on planned no-school days, including teacher planning, in-service, grading, conference days, and more!
Please check with your local Champions site director to learn how scheduling is handled in the event of either an early release or delayed opening, and always call your site director if you’re unsure about whether or not Champions will be open.
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 for the first 16-30 minutes and an additional $10 for each 15 minutes following that.
