Delayed School Opening Service for MAMBEC Morning/Afternoon School Speciality Program Students Only

Delayed openings are considered when there is a severe weather event (for example, snow clearing or other operations that require additional time) as well as if the school is experiencing an issue with power or water. On school days when conditions exist such that it is not safe to open schools at regularly scheduled times, but it is predicted that conditions will improve, parents can drop their children at MAMBEC at 7:00am. This includes both morning and afternoon children. MAMBEC will shuttle all children to their appropriate schools (Colby Elementary, Astral Drive, Caldwell Road Elementary, Portland Estates, Bois Joli and Brookehouse). The cost for this service will be $20.00 per child (plus tax), over and above regular program costs. This cost will be added at the end of the month that the delayed opening service is required.

About Us…

Here you can find more information about our programs, including our children’s martial art/life skills classes, inservice and other day camps, and our birthday parties! MAMBEC has established a unique, innovative, contemporary Martial Art Center incorporating a new concept, teaching young people “Mental Martial Arts”, the ability to understand and resolve conflict before it becomes physical, individually and socially. MAMBEC’s objective is to give children safe skills to deal with conflict at an early age and to provide them with a better understanding of the world around them


Congratulations to MAMBEC campers! Christmas Donation, 2013. We raised $777 which was matched by the Canadian Government. Through our program, we have raised $10,000 for Unicef to help children around the world. Each year MAMBEC sends a donation to UNICEF to help those less fortunate.
