Behaviour Policy

It is my policy to set clear boundaries for children’s behaviour.

My procedure is always to reward and encourage good behaviour. This could be done verbally or in the form of a reward chart.
I will discuss the boundaries for behaviour with all children, if children understand the boundaries they will feel more secure.
I will take into consideration the age and stage of the child and their individual needs.
Distraction will be used to divert a child’s attention.
Where possible, I will explain why what they have done is wrong.

If your child has had sickness or diarrhoea, the 48 hour rule applies.

If your child becomes ill whilst in my care, I will make them as comfortable as possible, isolate them from the other children if necessary and reassure them. I will contact you immediately and continue to care for them until you arrive.

If you have any concerns regarding this policy please contact me.
