Preschool is a safe and nurturing place to learn social skills. We believe discipline is not about punishment, but rather about teaching appropriate forms of behavior. At our school, we promote three simple rules, each understood and applied in an age appropriate manner for the classes:

  1. Be Safe
    ~Hands to self
    ~Personal space awareness
  2.  Be Respectful of Self and Others
    ~Cooperative learning (taking turns)
    ~Care of toys and equipment
  3. Learn good etiquette
    ~Good manners
    ~Becoming independent and taking care of self

For children who need more guidance in behavior management, we promote problem-solving skills, redirecting children to another activity, and giving them choices. Some children may need to have a quiet, safe place to process their situation with an adult in a positive way before rejoining the group, and this is done in a loving, respectful and supportive way.  We do not practice any punitive discipline, and strive to build an inviting, creative and fun learning environment for our children to grow and learn.
