Parents tell us there’s a need for an after school program where their children will be safe from bullying and in properly supervised, structured environment. Add to that the everyday stresses of getting your child fed and ready for school and then yourself ready for work. Then you have to pick them up from day care, go to martial arts class, and then home for dinner and homework.
The A+ After School Program will relieve the stress of having to leave work in time to pick up your child, get them to their martial arts class, then go home for dinner and help them get their homework done. Instead, your child will spend their afternoon constructively. Their after school time will be spent on their homework, other quiet time activities, and their martial arts class. Once you pick them up at Fear Knot, you’ll have time for a relaxed dinner and quality time with your child the rest of the evening.
Because our tuition is priced competitively with traditional after school care, your child will have quality care and learn important lessons in their martial arts classes.
Held at our Mechanicsburg school, our A+ After School Program provides parents an exciting alternative to standard after school options for children 5 through 12 years old. Basing the program on our traditional and age-specific, age-appropriate youth character development programs, your child's after school experience will be a fun filled and unique experience. Each student's afternoon will be filled with appropriate martial arts training that teaches them about discipline, focus, respect and making good choices in a structured setting. Each day will also include physical games, exercise, and study time. We make after school care perfect for parents too by offering convenient pick up times and camps on select school holidays.
FEAR KNOT Martial Arts For Kidz facility offers a large training floor and a separate study and activity area. The training floor is where students hold their martial arts classes. During their down time, the study and activity area offers a nice break from the afternoon's physical activities where the students can study, complete their homework, and enjoy other downtime activities. Each student is also provided a storage space for their equipment and other personal belongings.
Our A+ After School Program is staffed with professional blackbelt instructors, program directors, senior staff members, and assistants with CPR certification along with criminal background and child abuse clearances. Those staff members are trained and dedicated to providing a great experience for every student. Our staff's purpose is to give your child plenty of attention and encouragement, making their experience fun and productive.
Our students are taught about being disciplined, controlling themselves, showing respect, and paying attention. They also talk about why those skills are important as they grow up. Separated by age, our developmental classes use basic martial arts skills to help teach those valuable life lessons in a way that fits the learning abilities of each group. In addition, students are taught the same class curriculum as all other Fear Knot students.
