Positive direction and instruction is required in order for children to relate to each another. Respect for themselves, others and the environment is a learned skill. Young children must be exposed and educated on how to courteously get along with others. Our goal is for your child to have strength of mind and will.
Age appropriate boundaries are established within the room setting as well as on the playground. Children will quickly learn what is within acceptable limits. As educators of young children, it is our responsibility to teach children acceptable behavior as a result of modeling and through positive discussion and redirection. Approving support will be given when your child exhibits positive behavior.
As per Chapter 65C-22 Florida Administrative Codes/ Childcare Standards, all childcare personnel must comply with the facilities written disciplinary policy. Such policies shall include standards that prohibit children from being subjected to discipline which is severe, humiliating, frightening or associated with food, rest or toileting. All child care personnel are prohibited from spanking as well as any other form of physical punishment.
Should behavior become less than acceptable, your child will be redirected in a positive manner. Teachers will use a variety of positive redirection. For example reward system using stickers, stamps, pennies, etc. Or just simple asking the running child to “use your inside feet” or “please save your running feet for outside.”
