Guidance and Discipline

Respect for self, respect for others

We believe in using positive discipline to guide, encourage, and support children. Positive discipline helps children learn how to interact with others and develop self control. It begins with adult behavior: good limit-setting and clear communication of these limits. This includes teaching more appropriate behavior, giving cues for new behavior, giving choices, and supporting children in their new behavior.

Staff will manage typical discipline encounters with helpful, positive solutions such as redirection, distraction, active listening, conflict resolution, and recognizing and helping the child to deal with strong emotions.

We strive to recognise signs of anxiety and stress and to help children learn calming techniques. Our staff are trained to create a positive, secure, and consistent environment for children to learn necessary social and life skills. Positive discipline is designed to teach children to become responsible, respectful, and resourceful.

Educators follow a Behaviour Guidance Management Policy which extends across the whole Service giving consistency of expectation in all rooms. This policy allows children to develop self-discipline, a respect for others and for property and respect for self.

 
Our policy aims are:

■ To give all children the opportunity to expand their experiences of life in a productive, safe environment that allows individuals the right to safety, tolerance, self-expression, cultural identity, dignity and the worth of the individual, along with honesty in dealing with peers and caregivers.

■ To be taught to respect the rights and needs of others by foreseeing the outcome of their behaviour and the consequences of their behaviour.

■ To encourage the individual social development of each child.


If you require further information on this policy please ask Educators and refer to the policy book.

A friendship is formed....Visiting our Grandfriends in the care homes

As a part of our weekly programme, we just love visiting the residents in the care homes, affectionately known as the 'Grandfriends'. It is so heart warming to see friendships form between the residents and the children at Little Diggers. We hope this may resume. later this year, we still see them and wave through the windows and doors.   ►   details...
