Tell Me More about Being a Body Safe School

MAC is a body safe school. Body safety includes:

  • Teaching children that they are the boss of their own bodies

  • Identifying “private parts” and using the proper terminology for these parts

  • How to recognize and respond to inappropriate behavior

Our staff is required to take training and we also host a workshop for parents every other year so they can become informed on body safety rules. To learn about what MAC does as a school, watch a video with our Head of School here. You can also read more about the parent workshop and training we provide here.
