We believe that the discipline of a child is achieved through patience, consistency, and positive reinforcement. We set examples for the children at our childcare. We understand that children learn by seeing and mimicking others, especially adults. No child will be hit, spanked, belittled, or otherwise intimidated while in provider’s care. No corporal punishment will be used, including by parent/guardian when on the premise. Children will be treated with courtesy, respect, and patience. Children are explained the rules of the daycare home frequently so that all know the guidelines and what's expected.

Once a child is old enough to understand the rules and disobeys them by, exhibiting inappropriate behavior (biting, hitting, purposely being disobedient, etc.), hurts others, or property, the following age appropriate techniques will be used:

  • Positive Reinforcement: The child will be encouraged when he or she demonstrates acceptable behavior.

  • Redirection: The child is redirected to another activity and given an opportunity to try again at another time.

  • Break: The child is separated from the group for an age appropriate amount of time (one minute per one year of age). This technique is only used when a child consistently will not follow our directions or listen to our words, is exhibiting temper tantrum type behavior, or hurting oneself, others or property. 

  • Last Resort: When a child's behavior is continually dangerous or inappropriate to others, we will set-up a conference with the parents. If the problems are unable to be resolved, arrangements will be made for the child to go elsewhere for childcare.
