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.
