be designed developmentally appropriate and to allow
for children to self select their activities.

dictate their behavior. Suitable choices are given
to children to help them develop positive
self-esteem and decision-making abilities.

away from a problem, and moving toward a
constructive activity or solution will decrease

||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)
||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.
||We believe that children and staff shall be safe
from violence, physical and verbal abuse.
||We believe that appropriate consequences are
necessary to help guide a childs behavior. The
