This week’s deal of the week comes from West island Karate/Karate de l’île.

Attend a free trial class during our open house from August 22 to 27th and receive a  free uniform upon registration ($50 value).

Call  to schedule your free trial class and please visit the website (www.westislandkarate.com or www.karatedelile.com) for more information, including many videos and photos of students in action.  See for yourself why West Island Karate/Karaté de L’Île has a well-earned reputation for being one of the finest Kyokushin Karate schools in the Montreal area.

Em 2010

At West Island Karate/Karaté de L’Île, we have been teaching Japanese Kyokushin Karate for over 20 years.  Students include children as young as 5 years old to adults of all ages.  WIK/KDL has locations in both Beaconsfield and Île-Perrot and is an independently owned dojo (karate school)  and is also one of the very few full-time dojos operating  in the West Island.  You may register for classes at anytime throughout the year and beginners are welcome (a free trial class is always offered).

At WIK/KDL, karate is not treated as simply an “activity” for your child; it is an endeavour.

Well-qualified, ADULT instructors pass on their knowledge and passion for Kyokushin Karate.  Every instructor is familiar with their class and knows how to motivate and encourage each student to reach their full potential.  Empowering the students is our ultimate goal.  With the belief that the study of karate is much more than learning how to kick or punch, there are important life-lessons to be realized.

Classes are divided according to the experience of a student, this allows students to work at their own pace and allows beginners to join at anytime throughout the year.

Call to schedule your free trial class and please visit the website (www.westislandkarate.com orwww.karatedelile.com) for more information, including many videos and photos of students in action.  See for yourself why West Island Karate/Karaté de L’Île has a well-earned reputation for being one of the finest Kyokushin Karate schools in the Montreal area.

We here at Garderie Tweetoons understand the importance of providing your child with a safe, loving and happy environment where they can further their development in order to prepare for “big school”.Our loving, patient and qualified educators give each child the attention they need to grow by making sure that they learn at a comfortable pace as we all understand that every child is unique! Our bilingual and educational program provides your children with the readiness to move up and will increase their love and willingness to learn! blue logo

Our annual multi-cultural pot luck holiday celebrations, Mother’s Day brunches and Father’s Day bbq’s help make us more of a family than just a daycare! Having fun is just as important as learning and our karate, yoga and gym activities are great ways to have fun while learning patience, control and furthering gross motor development.

We also offer our services during evenings and weekends, providing a safe and educational environment for those who work hours extend past the usual Monday-Friday 9 to five work week. This way you can get your work done while knowing your children are being cared for by professional and experienced educators.

With the new sliding scale changing the entire makeup of the cost of daycare, the advanced credits provided by Revenue Quebec makes the quality of private daycares just as affordable as and sometimes even more so than CPE’s.

We are now accepting registrations for September.
