Light City After School Program is a practical and constructive alternative to daycare or baby sitting. By allowing the members to participate in a structured and comprehensive martial arts ASP, we are able to provide an environment that is conducive to all of the positive character elements that are needed for your child to develop into a world class citizen.

Your child WILL participate in physical exercise. They will also learn discipline, manners, respect for teachers and others, as well as build a foundation for positive self-esteem. 

In addition, we will focus on bully proof and self defense techniques to enhance your child's ability to defend themselves.

The following methods of discipline will be used:

-Encouraging children to solve problems themselves

-Intervention and discussion

-Redirection to another activity

-Loss of privileges

-Time-outs

 

Should a chronic behavior issue (such as hitting and hurting others) arise staff will notify you. We will work together with you to correct the behavior, but if child continues to hit and hurt others, system is as follows:

-Child will be suspended for 1 day

-Child will be suspended for 3 days

-Childs registration to program will be terminated

 

Our focus is the safety and well-being of all the children. Please understand, we will do all we can for transformation to come.
