How does the staff at Kiddie Prep School discipline the children in their care?
Child training and discipline is handled with kindness and understanding, but with firmness. Proverbs 12:1 says “If you love learning, you love the discipline that goes with it – how shortsighted to refuse correction.” Kiddie Prep School staff is trained in the practice of Conscious Discipline created by Dr. Becky Bailey. Teachers are equipped to integrate social-emotional learning discipline and self-regulation so they can spend less time policing behavior and more time teaching vital life skills.
I want to celebrate my child’s birthday at school. Can I bring in treats?
We love celebrating birthdays and special events. All food/treats MUST be store bought and contained in the original store container showing the ingredients. There are several children with severe allergies and we want to keep all children safe. NO decorations please unless your child’s teacher asks you to bring them in for celebration days.
