School Notes

  • Little Flower Educational Child Care provides an appropriate developmental program that meets children's needs and is the first and primary step in helping them develop security, confidence and self-control. Developing a plan for each child within this responsive environment is an ongoing process as children improve their social skills. Young children progress developmentally in all areas of growth including the area of self-discipline and moral character. Very young children have limited ability to consider the abstract needs of other people, so discipline techniques must focus on concrete experiences and explanations for limits on behavior. Learning limits on behavior is akin to learning in all other areas in an important way: it requires many trials before success can be expected.
  • Using much patience and encouragement, the teacher will utilize the St.John Bosco Method of Positive Reinforcement. In this method, consistency is vital, for children will become familiar with what is expected of them in regards to rules, schedules, etc. They will begin to take responsibility for their behavior when they learn about consequences, good or bad. This method will always maintain the respect for the integrity of the child, for they will know that they are loved in spite of their unacceptable behavior and that they are recognized for good behavior. Corporal punishment is prohibited.
