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:
or using physical punishment.
abusing or insulting a child.
Withholding food or drink from a child.
Restraining a child in a crib, stroller, or highchair.
After you have toured our
day care and wish to enroll your child, speak with the director
to make sure the daycare has opening in the program you want.
You may reserve your child’s spot by signing a contract and
making a non-refundable deposit fee of $50.
In addition, we will follow the Michigan Rules and Guidelines at
all times.(R400.1804: Prohibits any form of punishment)
