Discipline

We attend to social conflicts by offering teacher support - sometimes children need more attention. We have them be the helpers so they can get that attention in a positive way. It works really well! If a child is out of control, we offer them a quiet place to calm down and allow them to come back when they're ready. The goal of discipline is to teach children to be responsible. This is a gradual, long-term process in which mistakes are natural. It is understood that the teachers have to be patient and look at things from the child's point of view. Teachers foster a classroom atmosphere appropriate for very young children. We work to avoid long waits - trouble waiting to happen - and we create fun transition activities to keep children's attention in a positive way.
