School Rules & Policies

Preschool Students Expectations Philosophy
We strive to provide the best education possible for your children and are most successful with parent support and regular school attendance.  We teach our students to act responsibly and kindly towards others and our school itself.  Our school rules are designed to build good problem solving skills and to foster self confidence and independence.
If a child has difficulties following our classroom or playground rules, we use positive redirects and statements of need.  For example, You need to share your toys."  This is designed to encourage the behavior we want to see.  We remind children of our rules in a positive manner, for example:  "Friends listen when someone else is talking."  We use the phrase, "It's not okay to..." when we are talking with a child to help them understand their misbehavior.

If a child's behavior is aggressive or inappropriate, a time out may be used by the teacher.
  • Only teachers discipline children.
  • Volunteer parents do not discipline other children.
  • Time-outs are used after the school routine has been established and children are familiar with the rules.  A time-out is time away for an activity for 10 minutes maximum.  The child is re-directed to an activity and reinforced when they engage in their new play.
  • Occasionally a child's behavior warrants being sent home from school.  This is a last resort and is used only in limited situations.
 
Children may be sent home for the day:
 
  1. Behavior that is out of control, such as tantrums, throwing chairs or consistent running away from the teachers.
  2. Biting another child or adult.
  3. Excessive hitting or scratching
  4. Illness, head lice or lack of sleep
