OTHER TIDBITS

  • Discipline
  • Communication
  • Meals
We believe that making a child feel loved is the first and most important part of good discipline. We also believe the recipe for behavioral success is clear limits stated in a positive, specific, and concrete way. A child having difficulty controlling his or her behavior may be removed from the situation for a brief period of time and then returned to the group. We also use redirection as a means to control and calm a child. Through teacher facilitation, the child is guided to self discipline and learns to express and use his or her feelings in constructive ways.
“What we did today” is posted daily in every room. Day to day reminders are posted in each room and the hallway. It’s our custom to discuss your child’s behavior via face-to-face communication including parent/teacher conferences held twice a year and as needed.
We believe that meal time is an excellent opportunity to form long-lasting manners in our little ones. Therefore, grace before meals is prayed and a nutritious lunch is served family style. Each child passes the food and serves themselves something of everything, waiting for all to be served before beginning to eat. After the meal each child asks to be excused and clears his or her place. An optional 8 a.m. breakfast is also served.
