How do you handle discipline?

As part of our curriculum, teachers work to assist children in developing social skills as they build relationships.  As children’s social skills develop, conflicts may arise.  When children demonstrate inappropriate behaviors or express emotion in an unsafe way, teachers and administrators assist the child as he/she resolves the conflicts, identifies feelings and discovers solutions.   There is no one-size-fits-all response to inappropriate behavior and each situation will be given individual consideration and response.

At all times, our goal is to assist the child as he/she develops.  Teachers and administrators will not use physical punishment such as shaking or hitting, use threats or derogatory remarks or withhold food from a child.
