Parents Head Back to School, For Fun

September 13, 2018

PORTLAND, Ore (Sept. 13, 2018) – As children around the country settle into their schoolday routines, Champions Before- and After-School programs invite families to their National Open House Week September 17-21. Parents and children are invited to visit the Champions program at their school to enjoy fun activities together and learn more about how before- and after-school programs extend learning beyond traditional school hours.

Champions has nearly 30 years of experience supporting busy families by providing a fun and safe space where children can learn and develop outside of the traditional school day. Their before- and after-school programs offer learning activities, homework help, healthy snacks, and fun activities geared toward grades K-8, conveniently located within the child’s school. Champions programs are nationally accredited through AdvancED, the same organization that accredits schools around the country.

In addition to learning activities and homework help Champions programs also offer many of the same clubs as other programs, providing children with the opportunity to expand on their personal interests and build leadership skills.

"At Champions, we know a child’s day doesn’t end when the last school bell rings which is why we work with the schools we serve to ensure our programs are available when learning is needed most,” said Dan Figurski, Champions’ Chief Operating Officer. “Parents can go to work knowing their child will have fun, learn, and enjoy time with their friends in an enriching program with trained teachers. We invite families to visit our sites during open house week to experience a Champions program firsthand.”
