Our goal is to provide a supportive environment in which
children can begin to learn and practice appropriate and
acceptable behaviors as individuals and as a group. While
young children are being cared and nurtured in our safe
environment, their ideas and creativity are always valued.
We help children to solve their own problems by
encouraging them to use words.
We allow children to express all their feelings both
positive and negative ways. Our staff listens to children
and helps them to deal with their feelings. Caregivers use
positive guidance that directs children on what to do. For
example, “please use walking feet”, instead of “don’t run.”
We redirect children with positive guidance when they are
involved in a fight with other child. For instance, “how do
you think Sam is feeling after being pushed? You can play
with another truck.” Our aim is to give gentle reminders
and redirecting a child to the appropriate choice when
behavior is unacceptable with other children. For example,
“let’s see what Leah is building with the blocks.”
Regardless on any condition, our daycare staff prohibits
using any of these following methods:
Hitting or using physical punishment.
Verbally abusing or insulting a child.
Withholding food or drink from a child.
Restraining a child in a crib stroller or highchair.
In addition, we will follow the Michigan Rules and
Guidelines at all times.
