How a Honolulu Preschool Handles Behavior Management September 11, 2018

How a Honolulu Preschool Handles Behavior Management, Ewa, Hawaii

If you’re considering enrolling your child in preschool, you probably have a lot of questions. One question that many parents have is how an early education center will handle aspects like discipline and behavior management. Seagull Schools in Honolulu, HI, knows that this can be a delicate subject for many families. That’s why they provide information on their own personal disciplinary philosophy to ensure parents have the information they need to make the right decision.

The Importance of Positive Reinforcement

While instructors rely on punitive measures to discipline children, this preschool believes in the power of positive reinforcement. Instructors will also attempt to anticipate issues before they occur, as well as encourage students to express their emotions in a healthy and constructive manner. The staff also tries to emphasize the natural consequences of their actions, and re-direction may be used to deter children from problematic behavior.

How This Preschool Defines Quality of Care

PreschoolQuality of care can be defined by a few essential tenets. First of all, this school believes in creating a happy and relaxed environment for all students. Secondly, staff will keep developmental differences in mind when address issues to ensure the response is appropriate for the child in question. Next, we believe that all children deserve to retain their dignity, which is why corporal punishment is never an option.

Dealing With Extreme Cases

Of course, some instances of acting out may be on-going. Not only can this make it difficult to provide children with daily lessons, but it can also become a safety issue. Accordingly, consistently disruptive or aggressive behavior entails more substantial action. Parents will be notified soon after the incident, and removal may be requested by administrators. A meeting will also be held, at which point mandatory counseling may be discussed. If the behavior does not resolve, this preschool learning program reserves the right to suspend or discharge students.

Since 1971, Seagull Schools has provided parents and their children quality education in a welcoming, all-inclusive environment. Teachers emphasize experiential methodology and strive to enliven the natural curiosity that all children possess. If you’d like to learn more about the Honolulu preschool, call (808) 261-8534 today.
