Discipline/Guidance Policy

Emotional development, like other developmental levels, takes time and learning opportunities. The staff set clear and reasonable expectations. The environment will eliminate many challenges to children by offering choices, a variety of provocative materials and time to build relationships. We will provide role models for respect, inclusion and empathy in a calm and consistent manner. When challenge arises, we will facilitate by addressing the child’s feelings, offering choices and helping the child with words and options to become a problem solver. We will maintain close communication with the parents in the emotional development of their child, as in all other areas of growth.
