Thank you for your interest in before and after school child care offered at the Pell School in Newport by the Newport Family and Child Opportunity Zone.  Champion Childcare will be open Monday through Friday each school day for students enrolled at Pell Elementary School only.  AM care will open at 6:30 am and PM care will be open from school dismissal until 6:00 pm each school day. The program is held on-site at the Pell School which allows children to easily transition to and from the school day.  Childcare activities include homework time, student choice time, structured activities, and outdoor play time.  Students attending AM care may have school breakfast daily before heading to class.  Students in PM care receive a daily snack/meal after school each day.  Meals are offered at no additional cost to families. 

    Champion Childcare maintains ratios of no more than 12 students to one staff and no group size is larger than 26 students for grades 1-4 (24 students if kindergarten students are enrolled).  We are a 4 Star rated program by the RI Bright Stars Quality Rating System


    The Newport Family and Child Opportunity Zone has been working in partnership with Newport Public Schools for over 24 years.  Our office is on-site at the Pell Elementary School and we will see your child throughout the day. We work closely with teachers and specialists to ensure that we understand the needs of your child.  We look forward to serving you and your family.
