What is appropriate behaviour in BrainSTEM Learning Canada lessons?

Appropriate Behaviour Agreement

We want our programs to be a safe and fun experience for everyone. To ensure that we can all enjoy BrainSTEM Learning Canada programs, participants are expected to:

  • Respect: Be respectful to themselves, other participants, our staff, and BrainSTEM Learning property;
  • Listen: Actively listen to the Lead instructors and Assistant instructors, and the other participants; and
  • Be Positive: Maintain a positive attitude throughout the program.

The expectations at the program work just like the expectations at your child’s school. If your child follows them closely, then they will be able to participate in all of our activities. If your child doesn’t follow the expectations, then they may not be allowed to participate in an activity. Inappropriate behaviour may also result in the suspension of privileges, or removal from BrainSTEM Learning Canada without monetary reimbursement.  All decisions regarding the consequences of inappropriate behavior will be made by BrainSTEM Learning Canada in its sole discretion.

There is absolutely no tolerance of emotional, physical, verbal or sexual abuse, and bullying, harassment or teasing will lead to the immediate contact of parent(s)/guardian(s) and possible removal from the program. There is also no tolerance of fighting, physical violence, possession or use of weapons (including using materials as weapons), or any actions or behaviours that threaten the safety of the participant or group. Smoking, the consumption of alcohol, and possession of illegal substances is not tolerated. The use of any of these will result in a report to the RCMP, as well as to parent(s)/guardian(s).
