What if my child requires medication?
Please notify the Director if your child is taking any kind of medication, even non-prescribed medication. The school will administer medication only when prescribed by a doctor.
All medications must have the original label and must have your child’s name. The medication will be administered in accordance with the label directions as prescribed by your child’s physician.
The preschool will not be responsible for handling any kind of over-the-counter medications for any student at any time.
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.
