Discipline and Guidance

Praise and positive reinforcement are effective methods of behavior management of children. When children receive positive, nonviolent, and understanding interactions from adults and others, they develop good self-concepts, problem-solving abilities, and self-discipline. Based on this belief, Red Bird Learning Center uses a positive approach to discipline and practices the following discipline and behavior management techniques.

We don't ...

  • Use harsh, cruel, or unusual treatment of any child. 

  • Enact corporal punishment or threats of corporal punishment

  • Use punishment associated with food, naps, or toilet training;

  • Pinch, shake, or bite a child;

  • Hit a child with a hand or instrument;

  • Put anything in or on a child’s mouth;

  • Humiliate, ridicule, reject, or yell at a child;

  • Subject a child to harsh, abusive, or profane language;

  • Place a child in a locked or dark room, bathroom, or closet with the door closed

  • Require a child to remain silent or inactive for inappropriately long periods of time for the child’s age.

We do...

  • Use positive methods of discipline and guidance that encourages self-esteem, self-control, and self-direction, which include at least the following:

  • Use praise and encouragement of good behavior instead of focusing only on unacceptable behavior;

  • Remind a child of behavior expectations daily by using clear, positive statements;

  • Redirect behavior using positive statements; and

  • Use brief supervised separation or time out from the group, when appropriate for the child’s age and development, which is limited to no more than one minute per year of the child’s age.

Policy & Procedures

We attempt to define Red Bird Learning Center policies in areas where parents and staff have concerns. Many of the statements set forth in the following statements are required by the State Department of Human Resources, which licenses all childcare centers. We support these laws and believe they are made to protect children. You will obtain a complete handbook of the RBLC Policy and Procedures and Parents Handbook upon admittance of student.
