After School Daily Schedule
2:15 - 3:15
Pickups of children at various schools and arrival of children being bussed in to Grasshoppers. Upon arrival our excellent staff will start their day which includes;
Snack Time – Snacks must be provided for all children – please no peanuts or peanut butter due to some children having severe peanut allergies.
Free Time – As we all know the students have been in school all day, this is the best time to have the children release their built up energy! We have 1000 square feet open floor space, where the kids play games, tag, etc. and we go outdoors to our amazing backyard when the weather permits.

Martial Arts Instruction – Our classes are broken into 3 groups, this enables us to better teach our students in a smaller number vs. having all the children in one "mega class". During the class your child will be trained physically and mentally in the ancient art of TaeKwonDo. Your child will learn the tenants of TaeKwonDo (courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and loyalty) as well as valuable bully proofing techniques, including how to assess and react to peer-pressure and self-defence situations. Classes are typically broken down into 5 minutes of warm up followed by 20 minutes of instruction.
Creative time is where the students are encouraged to use their creative side! One of our staff will do arts and crafts and the children can decide to to this or use ,lego creations or building blocks. This is where the children learn to work both as an individual and as a team player.
Homework is where the children are encouraged to complete any homework that they may have or sit quietly reading a book or practicing writing etc.
4:45 – 5:15
Bilingual homework help. We have a fantastic Bilingual staff person that can help your child with homework both in the French or English language.
4:45 - 5:15
Pickup by parents / guardians.
If the child does not have homework we try to go outside and use our spacious yard. Outside we play games, sports, jumping on the trampoline, swing on the swings, or climb on the custom made play-set. If the weather is in-climate we stay inside and play games.
Note - Mondays is physical fitness day where TaeKwonDo class is comprised of cardio vascular and physical fitness drills as they pertain to TaeKwonDo.
Friday's are fun days and no homework help is offered and we watch a movie and play outside!
