We believe that positive guidance strategies support children to understand how to engage with other human beings, how to engage in socially acceptable behaviors, how to use materials in a safe manner, and most importantly builds their self-esteem.  


Based on our belief, we use the following strategies to help guide children:

1.  We reflect on their behaviors.

2.  We reflect on their feelings.

3.  We reflect on what they are communicating to us.

4.  We use personal messages.

5.  We strive to create a "Yes" Environment.

6.  We provide appropriate choices.
