Child disciple policy
The overall view of discipline in our program is to establish clear, consistent and simple limits the child can follow with straight forward explanations for these limits. At no time will permit the use of physical punishment, verbal or physical degradation or emotional deprivation. We will not deny or even threaten to deny any basic necessity. We also will not permit the use of any form of physical restraint, confinement, or isolation. Any disciplinary action taken must be reasonable in the circumstances.
Accidents or illness
In case of an accident or illness the child’s parents will be contacted immediately via phone; text or e-mail. They will be informed about the current condition of their child, and if it is necessary, they will be asked to come as soon as possible to pick up their child.
Potential Health Risk
When a staff member knows or has a reason to believe that a child is exhibiting signs or symptoms of illness, our staff will call and ask the parent to arrange for immediate removal of the child from the premises.
Administration of Medication
Medications will not be administered to children unless the appropriate medication form has been completed and signed by the parent, and provided to the teacher.
The program and the staff members will only allow for provision of health care to a child only if: The written consent form is obtained from the child’s parents or the health care provided is in the nature of first aid.
The program ensures that no person smokes on the program premises. No staff member shall smoke at any time or place were the child care is being provided.
