After-School

Explorers Adventure After School

  • Kindergarten- 5th Grade
  • Currently picking up from all 6 Lake Travis ISD elementary schools
  • Fully Licensed through the State of Texas DFPS
  • 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 day options available

At ChampionsTX, our mission is to build “all around Champions”, or put more specifically, to create a safe, fun, and nurturing environment where students not only pursue goals and conquer new skills, but build memories, relationships, self-confidence, and develop life skills.
In our After-School program, children are picked-up from school by Explorers staff on our new ChampionsTX bus, take care of homework and have a healthy snack, do a class within one of our programs (gymnastics, tumbling, cheer, parkour), participate in a S.T.E.A.M based activity, play outside, and are ready for a night at home with family!

Happy Parents

“First, I want to say a HUGE Thank you for a great week for my children- having done the homework at after-school made our evenings at home much easier (especially on a week my husband is traveling:). I saw the worksheets you had done with my Kindergartener and I am very pleased. I will make sure to tell all my friends how well you guys run the program. Also, both of my children seemed to like the classes they did very much.” – Explorers Adventure After School Parent

“I am so excited to have her in your program. Thank you and all the staff there for your wonderful work! I hope you know that it is making a huge difference in the lives of kids.” – Explorers Adventure After School Parent

About Our Program

slime
Dear Families,
Thank you so much for your interest in our program! Our passion at ChampionsTX is helping children grow and develop into even more wonderful versions of themselves. I love getting to know families and becoming a part of your parenting team, whether you entrust us with your child for 1 or 40+ hours/week! Champions Explorers is a fully licensed, early learning center for active kids, where children rotate through our 24,000 sq. foot campus, learning by what children do best, exploring. With daily gymnastics, an outdoor classroom, and each age group sharing two themed S.T.E.A.M. classrooms, it is a truly unique learning experience for little ones, and I’m very excited for all the things we have in store.
Our program is located in the ChampionsTX facility. This setting allows for a truly unique preschool experience by allowing children to learn and grow while doing what they do best, moving and exploring the world around them. Children learn through sensory and movement based experiences. We have placed an emphasis on this style of learning in our classrooms by designing a preschool curriculum that integrates physical play with academic learning.
We are a family owned and locally owned and operated company, and our parent company of ChampionsTX has been in business over 23 years serving the families of the West Austin area. One thing you’ll find by enrolling in our school is that we truly care about your family, and you’ll become a part of the ChampionsTX family. We host parent seminars, Parents’ Night Outs, family events, and through the ChampionsTX campus have many activities and camps that all of the siblings can attend at the same time. We aim to make your life easier, your child love coming here, and your child continually a more well rounded Champion!
We know this is a unique preschool program, so we encourage you to email your questions or schedule a visit to come and view our facility. If you have any more questions, big or small, please feel free to contact me. We are also holding a few open houses; follow us on instagram for updates. Again, let me know if you have any questions, at any time! We look forward to hearing from you!
Sincerely,
Alison Callaway
ChampionsTX CEO

Curriculum, Goals & Objectives

Our focus is to prepare, educate, and mentor students to assist with what they are learning in primary school education and beyond. It is our mission to take advantage of every teachable moment that happens by fostering the creative, social, intellectual, and emotional development of our students. We develop curriculum that incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) based activities everyday.

It is our goal to provide our children with many opportunities to experience all areas of development with the availability of a wide variety of materials and learning experiences.

We are committed to ensuring that the children, families, teachers, and coaches act as collaborators. It is through a strong parenting team that children really prosper. Communication and feedback is encouraged daily through opportunities to share information during pick up, on the phone, or by email.

At ChampionsTX we recognize each child and each family has their own goals they would like to achieve by enrolling at Explorers Adventure After School. With this in mind, we designed our program to offer multiple opportunities for each child to grow socially, emotionally, cognitively, and physically at their own pace with the guidance of our great staff!

All children in the Explorers Adventure After School program participate in an age appropriate gymnastics, parkour, cheer, tumbling, or trampoline class while at in our program. These classes are taught by our incredible ChampionsTX coaches who are equally as committed to the growth of every child they interact with.

Caring Teachers

Our teachers are nurturing and enthusiastic, so that your child feels like Explorers Adventure After School is a second home and is inspired every day. Our teachers are dedicated and passionate about creating environments which support a love for learning and building secure relationships. They all participate in ongoing professional development and are committed to furthering their knowledge in the childhood education and care industry. Our focus is to prepare, educate, and mentor students for a successful primary school education and beyond. It is our mission to take advantage of every teachable moment that happens by fostering the creative, social, intellectual, and emotional development of our students.

Safety First Mentality

At Explorers Adventure After School, we use a program called KidKiosk which allows each parent to have a unique PIN to check out their child each day. You will receive a notification every time your child is checked in and every time your child is checked out (and who checked them out.) You can leave your worries behind and feel secure that your child is safe and where they are supposed to be.

FAQ

Do I get to select the classes my child will attend?
YES! We strive to provide a schedule with many different options of classes for you and your child to enjoy. Select your favorite from gymnastics, cheer, parkour, trampoline, or tumbling classes.

Can I watch my child while they participate in class?
Absolutely! We want you to be an active part of your child’s experience and your kiddos would love to be able to show off all they have learned!  Although, this is not required and we do host official parent watch days during the year.

How will my child make it to and from their ChampionsTX class?
A coach will ALWAYS walk your child to their class and back to the after school room. All ChampionsTX coaches understand the importance of keeping our kids safe and have been trained on the procedures of walking children to and from their classes.

Can I sign my child up for more days of Explorers Adventure After School after we start?
OF COURSE! In fact, almost all of our families have chosen to increase the amount of days their child attends Explorers after seeing for themselves what a benefit it is to the entire family.  Provided we still have space in those days, you can up your enrollment at any time.

Are there any other perks to being in Explorers Adventure After School?
All current Explorers will receive exclusive reduced pricing for our Camps that we host during some school holidays, winter break, spring break, and of course summer.
