Positive Discipline

Bridges to Learning employees use a positive and consistent approach to problem solving in the classroom. Discipline is developmentally appropriate and promotes positive problem solving among the students. Children may be removed from a group activity when acting inappropriately. However, these children will be under the supervision of a staff member. If a child is removed from the group activity, it will be for a reasonable and appropriate period of time. This is usually defined as one minute for each year of the child's age.

A child will never be physically or corporally punished by a member of the staff. When using discipline with a child the staff member will use appropriate language, tone, and approach to the situation.

Any employee not abiding by the center's positive discipline policy will be terminated immediately.
