We believe that children should always be treated with love understanding and respect. When a child is experiencing a difficult day our approach is positive loving and consistent. We work with the child and parents to develop successful strategies to avoid or redirect negative behavior. Formal Parent/Teacher conferences are held twice each year but teachers believe parents are important partners in early learning and encourage parents to communicate with them regularly about their child.
