End of Program Dismissal
Mad Science believes in using positive reinforcement to encourage students to follow our rules and will support appropriate behaviour with praise, award certificates, prizes for students “caught being good” and class incentives. Although it happens very rarely, when positive methods fail, we have a “3 strikes and you're out” discipline policy, consisting of loss of class privileges, phone call home and expulsion from the program. Severe or dangerous behaviours, such as stealing, vandalism or violence can result in immediate expulsion from the program.
Cancellation of the Program
On occasion, Mad Science may need to cancel a program if there is not enough enrollment. We will endeavour to notify parents as soon as possible in this case. For school programs, if buses are cancelled, then the Mad Science program will be rescheduled.
Mad Science Club Program Specific Details
“I Changed my Mind”
If your child does not want to continue in the Club, give us a call. After the first week you will receive a 100% refund. After the second week, a pro-rated refund, minus a $10 service fee will be refunded. No refunds will be given for withdrawals after the 3rd week.
Epipens & Rescue Inhalers
During afterschool programs, we may not have easy access to epipens that are stored in classrooms or the office. If those medications can be carried by the child for the Mad Science Club, they can be more efficiently accessed in case of emergency.
If schools are closed or buses cancelled, so is the Mad Science Club. We will contact the school to make arrangements for a makeup day, and let you know the plan as soon as possible. If the school schedule is such that a makeup date cannot be arranged, we will provide you with a refund.
