Your child will not be yanked or spanked or have food withheld from or forced to him/her as a form of punishment. Discipline measures should not humiliate, shame, or frighten children. Discipline is not punishment but rather training to guide the child towards self-control. If a child displays any of the following excessive behavior problems, he/she will be redirected or placed on time out (depending on the severity of action). If the child is redirected, he/she will be engaged in an activity that is more acceptable. If the child is placed on time-out, he/she will be removed from activities for a specific amount of time, then allowed to return to the group to resume activity.
*using material destructively
*shouting from one area to the next
*creating a high noise level
*wandering around without permission
*consistently told not to do something
*fighting over toys, materials, other children or authority
If behavior continues, we will have a conference discussing other solutions besides redirection and time out to correct the problem. If then those measures do not work, service will be terminated.
