Behavior Management

The purpose of all behavior management at Hardy County Child Care Center is to help the children become increasingly self-managing and responsible. Only positive, non-punitive methods are used in the pursuit of this goal. Discipline is directed towards improving the child’s understanding of:

  • Social expectations,
  • Appropriate ways of behaving in given situations,
  • Causes and effects of the feelings and actions which he/she and others experience.
  • Helping children constructively express their feelings and frustrations to resolve conflict.
  • Modeling and redirecting children toward acceptable behavior.
  • Providing positively worded directions with reasons for limits.
  • A teacher may physically remove or hold a child to prevent the child from injuring themselves, other children or another employee.
     

The Hardy County Child Care Center staff is committed to helping children be educated for life in a democratic rather than authoritarian society. Respect for responsibility is a foundation of democracy. Therefore, helping each child become increasingly self-directing, mutually responsible with others, as well as learning awareness of right and wrong is an ongoing responsibility of our teaching staff.

Physical punishment of a child is forbidden at Hardy County Child Care Center. We rely on the techniques of diverting attention to constructive pursuits, compromising/arbitrating differences, expanding understanding from the environment in which he/she is distressed and assisting him/her to regain his/her self control (time out). We depend on the partnership between parents and teachers to make the advancement of the independence and honesty a real and functioning accomplishment.
