We strive to provide a predictable, consistent, and secure routine and environment in the center in order to lessen the occurrence of inappropriate behaviors. Children are taught the language and social skills they need to express their desires and emotions. The children are guided to find appropriate ways to achieve their desire.
However, at times a child may display harmful or inappropriate behaviors. The child is asked what happened. A discussion dialogue then transpires between the teacher and the child, which allows for him/her to verbalize his actions. Re-direction is used for the daily issues that arise.
At no time will a child be hit, shaken, shamed or verbally abused, nor will food be denied.
