Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our Philosophy In Dealing With Children's Challenging Behaviors:
Our goal is for children to become self-controlled and responsible. We assist the children by modeling appropriate behaviors. We use positive phrases to encourage appropriate behavior. We allow self-expression, but not if it hurts others physically or emotionally. In such cases, we do intervene. As a parent volunteering in the class, if there is a time when you are not sure how to handle a situation, please bring it to the teacher's attention. She will be able to assist you by modeling the appropriate way to intervene.
WE NEVER USE PHYSICAL PUNISHMENT ON CHILDREN. WE NEVER INTENTIONALLY EMBARRASS A CHILD. If necessary, we will remove a child from a group if they are in danger to themselves or others for a period of time. When the child appears to have gain control, we invite them back to the group.
