It is our belief that making mistakes, but most importantly, learning from them are intrinsic part of the learning process. Disciplinary measures are never intended to humiliate children; rather they are supposed to provide life-long lessons aimed at teaching children how to react in different situations.
At our Center, children will be disciplined as needed, but under no circumstance is corporal punishment justifiable. Above all, we shall not harm children. We shall not participate in practices that are emotionally damaging, physically harmful, disrespectful, degrading, dangerous, exploitative, or intimidating to children.
Acceptable disciplinary actions are redirection, modeling and reminding expected behavior. If needed, children will be removed from an activity for a reasonable amount of time to encourage the desired behavior. The amount of time-out is to be determined by the child’s age. No time-out is to exceed our policy of one minute per year of age (i.e.: a two year old child will be kept in time-out for no more than two minutes at a time).
Your child will be asked to stay at home if any of the following diseases becomes evident:
- Fever of 101 degrees or higher.
- Irritability, fuzziness, wheezing.
- Vomiting more than once.
- Severe rash or skin infection.
- Ring worm.
- Chicken Pox.
- Pink Eye.
- Mouth Sores.
