We recently changed our name! Effective August 1, 2018, Champions for Children has rebranded as an Apple Tree Prep Athens child care center. We are so excited to make this transition in order to match our sister centers in the Bogart and Covington areas. If you have any questions about our name change, we would love to talk to you. Please contact the Athens center with any questions.



We are now enrolling in several of our classrooms. If you're interested in learning more, please contact the center.
