While children enjoy a break from the classroom, many families are looking ahead to the upcoming back-to-school season and thinking about their before- and after-school care needs. That’s where national before- and after-school program provider Champions™, part of the KinderCare Learning Companies™ family of brands, can help: Hundreds of new Champions programs are expected to open around the country this fall, providing children and their families with high-quality out of school time programs in elementary and middle schools across the nation. As these program leaders prepare to support children and families they’re also in the midst of a nationwide hiring effort.
Champions currently has 650 programs in 27 states. This fall Champions programs are expected to expand into hundreds of new school districts, including some in Kentucky, Oklahoma and Utah.
“We have more than 600 jobs to support our new programs that we anticipate will start at the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year,” said Dan Figurski, president of Champions. “We know how important out of school time care is to families. We’re excited to offer our programs to even more families around the country and to welcome talented teachers to our family.”
Champions programs offer learning activities, homework help, healthy snacks and plenty of opportunities for school-age children to engage with and have fun with their peers, all within the safety and convenience of their school. Their proprietary curriculum supports the whole child by teaching children the skills they need to be successful in school and in life, such as creating connections with others, developing their social and emotional skills and building community.
