ENROLL NOW to make sure you have a slot.



ENROLL TODAY for the SUMMER PROGRAM at Champion’s Choice. Would love to have more kids, so, if you need a break, We are doing 9 – 1:30, Tues., Wed., Thurs. and accepting 2 – 6 or 7 year olds.

(Due to student child ratio, space is limited for the younger ones)

Same SLIDING SCALE FEE and children do need to enroll ( for emergency contact information and to meet requirements by our insurance company.
It is a more relaxed program, a bit more like day care, but we do follow a loose schedule with snack provided, circle time, craft and group activities. Children do need to bring a lunch.


Check out my new Online Orientation, it’s only about 15 min. long.  This will answer most of your questions about what to bring, how to handle tuition payments, lunches, drop off and pick up, illness, etc.:  Click here:

MOPS International Support Group  –

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) is a parent support group that meets at the Fortine Community Church and at Champion’s Choice in Eureka.  But, really any mom can come.  We have MOPSnext (Mothers of elementary age children) and MOPSteens (mothers of teens) all meeting together at the same time, same place.

  • every 1st Friday of the month from 4 – 6 p.m.
  • And
  • every 3rd Friday of the month from 10 – 12 noon in Eureka at Champion’s Choice
At our MOPS meetings you’ll get to have honest conversations with other moms who understand the joys and frustrations of motherhood. You’ll make friends, get connected and feel supported. A MOPS meeting includes practical teaching through speakers, demonstrations and videos. Plus, there’s usually food… food you didn’t make! I so much hope you will decide to try us out and look forward to meeting you!
We also provide childcare for all ages.  A children’s program called Moppets features Buck Denver’s “What’s In The Bible?” curriculum, designed by Phil Vischer, the creator of VeggieTales. It’s an experience all your kiddos will love.  So bring them all.

Why Preschool is Important Today:
Studies show that young minds are able to develop new habits with relative ease, but, if they are not given a rich environment with opportunities to explore, create and experiment during the critical early  years before age 6, they may never reach their full developmental potential. [This is huge! – it means if he doesn’t get what he needs for his brain to develop before he’s 6, he may never catch up. See this link for the complete study: THE HECKMAN STUDY According to the study, “Families play a powerful role in shaping adult outcomes.” Therefore, children who have a wide variety of learning experiences through both free play and directed play optimize their cognitive development for higher education and successful adult outcomes.
