Will you admit children in nappies?

We will be glad to check on your child's progress. Your classroom teacher will let you know when your child feels comfortable with the new environment.

What will happen if my child acts up in class?
If a child is having difficulty controlling their behavior, we will try the inappropriate behavior by providing positive alternatives. The teacher will talk to the child privately to explain the behavior problem. Children may be directed to an individual activity (i.e. reading, puzzles) if the inappropriate behavior persists. Should the problem continue, the parents would be informed. When child displays unusual behavior such as prolonged crying, tantrums, kicking, or biting, the parents will be notified immediately. Depending on the severity of the behavior or where it is recurring safety issue, the child may be dismissed from the program. This decision would be made after discussion with the parents, the teachers and the director. The Preschool Director makes the final decision. Children are not punished using time outs, being segregated from the other children, or by withholding of food. Children will never be yelled at or have physical punishment or rough handing or be retrained or enclosed in a confined space. Staff accepts toileting accidents as normal in this age group and will never single out or punish a child for the accident.
