How do you discipline the children?
There will be no form of corporal punishment of any kind. Any form of discipline or punishment that violates a child’s personal rights will not be permitted.
Discipline, i.e., guidance, will always be positive, productive, and immediate when behavior is inappropriate. Our philosophy is to guide rather than punish. No child will be humiliated, shamed, frightened, or subjected to verbal or physical abuse. We are alert to using indirect methods to forestall trouble and are ready to suggest special interest, or plan ahead so the child will have less chance to reach a crisis*.
*A more detailed description of dealing with aggressive behavior is explained in the Parent Handbook.
