Our staff is qualified to handle behavior issues with redirection and open communication. We will use positive reinforcement to correct negative behavior and time-outs will be used at a minimum for poor behavior. We will work closely with parents to find a viable solution if inappropriate behavior continues. Corporal punishment is a form a discipline that is inappropriate and will never occur at Altoona 8th Street Child Care.
Our staff also work using Positive Behavioral Support practices to encourage children's positive behavior. We look beyond a child's negative behavior to try to find out why a child may be misbehaving. This is key in helping that child work through a difficulty they may be having and helping them learn to control their emotions and express their feelings in a positive and productive manor.
