A Note From Champions
Go To Top of Page

Dear Orchard Elementary Families,

As you start your 20/21 school year with distance learning I want you to know that Champions will be here to support you and your family. We plan on opening our school age site on the campus of Orchard elementary on 8/12. The current ratio is 1:12 with no more than 12 children per room and we will operate in stable cohorts. Champions is prepared to offer full day care Monday-Friday 8am-5pm with a weekly flat rate of $250. We also can offer half-morning 8am-12pm and half-afternoon 1pm-5pm with a weekly flat rate of $100 if there is a need. At this time we are only offering weekly flat rates to keep the children in cohorts which will reduce exposure and keep them safe and healthy. We accept ALL subsidy agencies and Orchard employees do get 10% off!

Distance learning will be part of our new daily schedule. We will follow the Orchard distance learning bell schedule, we will make sure they attend all virtual meetings, and we will be there to provide support with their homework. We are also prepared to infuse social emotional learning into our curriculum once their distance learning is complete. We have qualified, background checked, and highly trained and experienced childcare workers along with school age program curriculum and materials. Safety
is our top priority! We will be following strict safety precautions as prescribed by Public Health, the department of Social Services, and your school. Click here to learn more and to see a video from one of our open essential sites!
