Discipline

Discipline:

Most parents have questions concerning our discipline procedures.  We are licensed by the State and therefore we are not able to spank children, even at the parent’s request.  Discipline and guidance shall be consistent and based on an understanding of each child’s individual needs and development.  Children will not be subjected to harsh or cruel treatment, such as shaking or spanking.  First, we would always try to reach the child with the truth of the misbehavior.  Second, punishment is determined by the misdeed, whether accidental or intentional.  Various discipline within the classroom include talking to, redirecting, not receiving a reward, and time out from play or a special activity.  All children will experience a “bad day” occasionally, which is perfectly natural.

We stress good behavior from every child at the Center.  Constant misbehavior will not be tolerated and will result in dismissal from the Center.  All fees will be non-refundable.  In the event we do have to dismiss a child, we will try to give you a 24 hour notice.  But any child may be dismissed at any time without advance notice at the owner’s discretion.

Biting Policy:

  • Our biting policy is very specific and will be strictly enforced to protect all children at Kid’s Harbor Learning Center.
  • If your child bites once you will be called and informed of the behavior.
  • If your child bites twice in one day you will be called to come and pick up your child.
  • If your child has to picked-up three times you will be asked to find another center immediately.
