Champions Before & After School Care

Champions, formerly known as Knowledge Learning Corporation School Partnerships (KLC), provides both a before- and after-school care program in Marlboro Township's elementary schools and an after-school program in the middle schools. The program is designed to provide children of working parents with a safe, caring, fun, and enriching “home away from home” during those hours that school is out but parents are at work.

The program is open to students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Five optional daily activity areas are set up at each site: Sports Zone, where students are able to participate in physical activities; Take the Challenge, where students can engage in shared reading or complete homework assignments with the help of a teacher; Imagine That, where students can work on an arts and crafts or theatre project; The Nature of It, where students can construct projects related to science or nature; and Snack Attack, where students learn about healthy foods and have the opportunity to cook, create, and eat the final product. Professionally-trained adult supervision is provided at all sites.

Flexible Enrollment Days - Children may be enrolled for two, three, four, or five days per week. Tuition is based on the number of days for which a child is enrolled, and a discount is provided for siblings. An extra fee is charged for days when school is closed for a holiday or there is a one-session day scheduled. Before-school care programs begin at 7 a.m. After-school care programs end at 6:30 p.m. 

Drop-in Care Available - "As needed" or "drop-in" care slots are available at every site. Once parents pay the annual registration fee, a child may be permitted to attend an AM or PM session that is paid for on the day of service. 

One-Session and Recess Day Availability - Champions also provides service for most one-session and school recess days. This is available for parents whose children regularly attend Champions' before- or after-care programs as well as for those parents who wish to avail themselves of Champions' services on an "as needed" or "drop-in" basis only.

Financial assistance is available. For more information, visit

Delayed Morning Opening – If the district issues a delayed opening, the program will open at 8:00 a.m.

School Closing After Delayed Opening – If the district determines that schools will be closed after initially announcing a delayed opening, the Champions PM program will not be provided. The Champions staff will notify participating AM parents.

Early Closing of School – If schools are closed for inclement weather or for any other situation, the Champions program will be open for a 2-hour period. Champions staff will notify parents that the program is cancelled, and ask that the parents arrange to pick up their children within the 2-hour window.
