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.

Before- and After-School: Grades K-6

Ages: 5 -12
Dates: 2019/2020 School Year
Hours: 6:30 AM to bell and school dismissal to 6:30 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- and After-School: Preschool and Pre-K

Ages: 3-5
Dates: 2019/2020 School Year
Hours: 6:30 AM to bell and school dismissal to 6:30 PM

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.
