Typically we try to sign all of our students at the beginning of the school year. However sometimes we do have openings and can accommodate students at any time of the year. Please contact us as we can tell you immediately if we have openings and at what schools.
We currently service 5 HRM schools in Dartmouth. Ecole Bois Joli, Michael Wallace, Ian Forsyth, Admiral Westphal, and we have students bussed in from Shannon Park.
We may be looking to expand our coverage area but have requirements and if your school is not listed above please contact the program and inform him that you would like to see pickups at your school.
No you can not drop your child off on certain days to just do TaeKwonDo classes. We have an extensive program that is geared to all of our after school students and feel that it is unfair to have students that are not part of the regular program to "drop in" and sometimes do TKD class.
Absolutely! We are recognized by the Provincial and Federal government as a Healthy Living Tax Incentive sport and registered for After School Care for your "tax deductions" We provide income tax receipts to all of our students for all fees received for the previous fiscal year.
(note - we are not a day care and do not fall under the day care act by the Dept. of Community Services)
We teach TaeKwonDo 3 days per week, and one day per week is physical fitness. On Fridays we have a fun day for the kids as they have worked hard all week and they look forward to "movie day" If a student is interested in attending our great after school program but not interested in taking Martial Arts, please contact us and we can discuss further options.
On snow days there will be no Grasshoppers programs. The vans will not be running in the afternoon to pick up children that are off at 12pm. This is a risk management issue and the TaeKwonDo School will be CLOSED for after school and regular Taekwondo on all snow days.
As HRM schools have three zones, and the private French schools all have different PD and in-service days, we are pleased to provide care for your child during PD or In-service days. The cost of an in-service day is $35 for full day or $20 for a half day.
We ask that if you are interested in taking part of our in-service days to please register via the online section on the grasshoppers website that will be available approx 2 weeks before the event.
