Guidance and Discipline

All involvement with children will be carried out in a positive, patient manner. Redirection will be utilized to correct behaviors that are not acceptable. There will be no time that aggressive talk or behaviors will be allowed. If a child is not behaving appropriately, these steps will be followed:

  1. The child will be talked to and told what the expected behavior is.
  2. If after being told how to correct the behavior it still continues, then the child will be redirected to a different age-appropriate activity.
  3. Then, if a behavior would continue, the child would be asked to sit apart from the activity for a several minutes to allow time to redirect the behavior and have the situation explained.
  4. If a child displays the following behaviors, parents/caregivers would be contacted to come and pick up their child.

The parents will be involved in the guidance and discipline process by meeting with the preschool director after class to discuss the behavior that needs correcting. If the behavior persists, then the parents and director will meet and come up with a behavior plan such as a reward system or charting/documenting the behavior over the course of an agreed amount of time.

The child will be involved in the guidance and discipline process by discussing the behavior with the director. After discussing and explaining why the behavior is unwanted or unsafe, the child will agree to the measures taken to improve the behavior. The child will become aware of consequences previously agreed upon with the parents, if the behavior were to persist.
