The Champions For Children Story

Studies have repeatedly shown that high-quality childcare - care that provides a loving, safe, stable and age-appropriate stimulating environment – helps to build the brain, body and social-emotional foundation for that child to be successful in school and life.

Since 1996, Champions, a 501(c)(3), has been the motivating force behind a coordinated community effort to design and implement progressive programs to help at-risk children, parents and childcare providers. From professional teacher trainings  to individual interventions for at-risk children of all ages, Champions' provides caregivers, teachers, and families with the tools, training, and support they need to ensure that their children have every opportunity at success.

Champions for Children is a United Way of Tyler/Smith County partner agency and is the ONLY non-profit agency in the area whose primary focus is quality, early childhood development for children birth to five years of age. Champions' also provides individual services to children, families, childcare centers and teachers in East Texas.

Children are our future!
