"It's great to be in such a friendly environment! From the moment I walk in the door, the atmosphere is always cheerful. I can tell the instructors genuinely care for the children."
As much as possible, we try to encourage self-discipline and self-control in our children, but when necessary, the instructors follow a simple process for discipline. First, they warn the child about the behavioral issue. If it continues, the child sits out of the class activity that is going on at the time. If the problematic behavior still continues, the instructor escorts the child outside of the class to spend time with the center director. At this point, the director and/or instructor will communicate the problematic behavior to the child’s parent or caregiver. Note that this last course of action is extremely rare, as most children are highly engaged in classes and focused on having fun. Discipline rarely escalates beyond a warning.
