Correcting and redirecting children is a daily part of our teachers responsibilities. Our primary goal is to lay a foundation that prepares your preschooler for elementary school. We encourage children to use their words and express themselves, but there are times when children do not listen, misbehave and disrupt the learning environment.
When a child is having a problem in the classroom:
Staff will try to redirect child from negative behavior.
Staff will always use positive methods and language while redirecting and correcting children.
Staff will consistantly praise appropriate behavior and apply consequences for rules.
Child will be given verbal warnings and time to regain control.
Child’s disruptive behavior will be documented and maintained in confidentiality.
Parent/gardian will be notified verbally and through incident reports of their child’s disruptive behavior.
The director, classroom staff and parent/guardian will have a conference to discuss how to promote positive behavior.
Actions that will lead to a child’s expulsion from the program:
Failure to pay weekly tuition / habitual late payments. (Does not apply to VPK Program)
Failure to complete and submit required forms, including immunization records.
Failure to follow through with correcting and redirecting negative behavior at home.
Physical harm threats, verbal abuse or intimidating actions toward staff members.
Uncontrollable tantrums and angry outburts.
Ongoing physical abuse to staff or other children.
Unable to toilet train in completion of the two year old program.
Failure of a child to adjust negative behavior after a reasonable amount of time.
