Discipline

As situations arise a teaching moment presents itself for problem solving and appropriate behavior. The children are taught to use words to ask for what they need, to express feelings in an appropriate manner, and to respect feelings/needs of others. Redirection is often used when discussions fail to solve the current situation. Any form of physical, emotional, or verbal abuse and/or punishment will not be permitted. Staff members may not deny or threaten to deny any basic necessity to a child and will not be permitted the use of any form of physical restraint, confinement, or isolation unless a child’s safety is of concern.
