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.

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 and after 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.
