What is your discipline policy?

The policy of the academy is:

·         No corporal punishment will be permitted.

·         No withdrawal of food, rest, or clothing will be permitted.

·         No isolation of the child will be permitted (except for a “cool-down period” – see below).

Cool-Down Period:

A “Cool-Down Period” is defined as the removal of a child for a short period of time from a situation in which the child is misbehaving and has not responded to other discipline techniques. The cool-down period is limited to no more than one minute per year of age. At no time will this procedure be utilized for children under the age of two. During the cool-down period, the child is still in sight of a teacher at all times. During the cool-down period, the child has a chance to think about the misbehavior which led to his/her removal from the group.   Then the teacher discusses the incident and the child is treated with the same affection and respect shown to the other children.
