Program Information

The Champions Program is a before and after school childcare program offered at all of the K-6 buildings in the Wayne-Westland Community School District. We provide structured childcare services before and after school, during school breaks, snow days and a summer camp program!

Champions before and aftercare makes the hours before and after school fun and engaging. Kids get everything they need to start the school day energized and end the school day, ready to go home for some quality family time! Our fun and varied program is made up of various hands-on activities that give your child the opportunity to continue learning before and after school.

And remember, our program is open to all families—even those who don’t attend Champions during the rest of the year.  So tell a friend or family member. You can feel confident knowing Champions has been recognized as a high-quality provider by AdvancED, earning us corporation accreditation.

A Day At Champions

Our Early Foundations® and School-Age Program curriculum are based on the latest research and best practices in early childhood education, giving young learners a great head start with a solid educational and life skills foundation. Our programs are built on a comprehensive scope and sequence of 120 learning objectives, mapped across six learning domains, and aligned with state early learning standards and K-12 expectations. Our programs are designed to develop the whole child through activities, appropriate for the specific ages of the children.
