Do you offer distance learning programs for kids in grades K–6?

We moved our elementary school distance learning program to the nearby Shores Child Development Center, and we’d love for you to join us! Please contact the Shores Center directly at (650) 594-1100 to learn more.

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.
