If the behaviour persists and conflicts cannot be resolved, or the situation is severe you will be contacted immediately and an incident report will be written.
If the behaviour(s) continue, your child will be removed from the program and you will be contacted and asked to pick-up your child immediately. If you are not available to pick up your child, your emergency contact will be asked to come as we do not have the staff for one-on- one supervision.
Atelier Artista is an inclusive environment, behaviour that will result in removal of a camper from the program include:
