Policies

Safety

• MAMBEC takes your children’s safety seriously and we are continually working to improve. All our instructors receive yearly training about sensitivity, discrimination, and harrassment.
• All our employees are required to have a vulnerable sector and background check that is updated regularly.
• Cole Harbour Place has many security cameras throughout the building, and we have installed our own cameras in the studio and our office. They are recording at all times.
• Our instructors and staff are not allowed to have casual contact with any of our students without written permission from their parents. This means our instructors are not allowed to contact the children directly in any way. If a child does contact an instructor (such as by sending a text), the instructor is required to report it to the Head Instructor or Head Administrator immediately and we will contact the child’s parents. If you ever suspect an instructor has had contact with your child, contact us immediately.
• All children must be picked up by a parent or other recognized caregiver. This means we cannot allow a child to leave by a cab or walk home unless we have received written consent from the child’s parents or legal guardians. We cannot even allow them to be unsupervised in public areas of Cole Harbour Place.
• We reserve the right to deny entry or remove any member who is disruptive, violent, a nuisance, or endangering themselves or other students.
