Discipline is an important aspect of any preschool program because young children, in the process of growing, need positive guidance in many areas.
Classroom rules covering respect for others, taking turns, allowing others to speak without interrupting, and self-control will be reinforced daily.
Children learn from self-directed problem solving and experimentation. They will be assisted by adults to develop social skills such as cooperating, helping, negotiating and talking with the person involved to solve interpersonal problems.

A written agreement between all parents involved will be signed and carried out. If the child violates the discipline plan, he or she will be referred to an appropriate program and tuition will be refunded. Appeals will be dealt with on an individual basis.
