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.

Champions is open for distance learning and hybrid care!
When the students are doing distance learning/asynchronous days we are open for full day care. On their 'live' school days, we offer before and after care!

All full day off and break camp programs will be held at Stevenson Middle School
