We feel that all children shall have a positive and safe place to grow and learn. The Center for Generations strives to provide a positive and safe atmosphere for the children attending the Center. Below are guidance/discipline techniques that are used at the Center for Generations.
Modeling: We believe that children will imitate behaviors that are observed. Therefore, our providers shall set good examples of appropriate behavior.
Prevention: We believe that a child care environment shall be designed developmentally appropriate and to allow for children to self select their activities.
Choices: We strive to provide children with choices to dictate their behavior. Suitable choices are given to children to help them develop positive self-esteem and decision-making abilities.
Redirection: We believe that redirecting a child or group away from a problem and moving toward a constructive activity or solution will decrease conflict.
Problem Solving: We work with children to solve their own disputes and problems. By helping children to set their own boundaries and communicate their boundaries to others, we are encouraging positive pro-social development. (using their words)
Responsibility: We believe that children shall be responsible for their choices, behavior, and actions. We help children to accept responsibility and to problem solve a solution.
Safety: We believe that children and staff shall be safe from violence, physical and verbal abuse.
Consequences: We believe that appropriate consequences are necessary to help guide a child’s behavior. The Center for Generations does not endorse or use forms of negative discipline. Corporal punishment is not tolerated at the Center.
