Discipline is an important aspect of any preschool program because young children, in the process of growing, need positive guidance in many areas.

Classroom rules covering respect for others, taking turns, allowing others to speak without interrupting, and self-control will be reinforced daily.

Children learn from self-directed problem solving and experimentation. They will be assisted by adults to develop social skills such as cooperating, helping, negotiating and talking with the person involved to solve interpersonal problems.

If a child is unable to control physical or verbal behaviors that adversely affect the safety of students and adults, parents will be contacted and a discipline plan will be formulated by teacher and parent to correct his or her behaviors. A written agreement between all parents involved will be signed and carried out. If the child violates the discipline plan, he or she will be referred to an appropriate program and tuition will be refunded. Appeals will be dealt with on an individual basis.

The following guidelines are encouraged for all adults in the classroom:
The behavior of a child must be discussed only with the Staff.
When discussing a child, do so when s/he is not present.
Adhere to a hands-off policy unless the child is in a situation in which he or she is physically hurting him or herself or others, in which case the teacher will remove the child from the situation without a warning.
If a minor problem arises in disciplining a child, use the 3 Rís method:
(1) Redirect
(2) Remove
(3) Restrain
