If you, as a parent, are uncooperative in completing and returning forms, fail to pay your tuition on time, fail to follow any state or county regulations, or fail to follow any Martial Arts Center of Apollo Beach Policy or Procedure, it may be necessary to dismiss your child(ren) from the Center.

The Parent's Role

The relationship between parents and Center staff is vital to the success of a child´s experience. A partnership must be formed the first day, with open communication and understanding that the development and growth of the child is our top priority.

Parents can assist and help ensure a smooth transition by doing the following:

Sign children in and out at the front desk and then escort them to their designated class Have all forms completed promptly update forms, as needed, when changes occur (i.e. new phone number, address, etc.) Keep staff informed of special needs or changes that might affect your child's behavior Notify the Center if your child is ill Do not bring an ill child to the Center Notify the Center if your child will be absent Notify the Center if you will be later than usual picking up your child Provide a change of clothes marked with your child´s name (Center is not responsible for lost clothing) Children should be dressed properly for the weather and play Do not allow children to bring toys Participate in the Center´s special activities Attend scheduled parent meetings and conferences Ask questions and address concerns as they arise.
