The word disciplines comes from the word "disciple" which is defined as someone who is a follower of Jesus Christ. At our preschool, we teach children to be disciples of Christ and to treat others the way God would want us to treat them. We use discipline strategies that are positive and uplifting but that also teach children the appropriate way to behave and handle situations. We help children walk through problem solving strategies when in conflict with other children and lovingly teach them how to listen and respect their teachers. We will provide redirection strategies and time out if necessary and will contact a parent if there is a safety concern or a problem that continues or worsens.
