Behavior Management Guidelines
Because we want each child to have the most conducive environment for learning and fun, we ask each attendee to be attentive to instructors and staff, engage in activities and respect others’ privacy and safety.
The following are examples of unacceptable behavior that may result in automatic dismissal from the program.
- Refusing to participate in activities or cooperate with staff
- Refusing to use wear a face covering or adhere to other COVID-19 policies
- Using profanity, vulgarity or obscenity
- Stealing or damaging personal or property of others
- Disrupting a program or presentation
- Leaving the group without permission
- Endangering the health and safety of children and/or staff
- Using illicit drugs, alcohol or tobacco
- Engaging in sexual conduct of any kind
- Teasing, making fun of or bullying of other children or staff *
- Fighting or physical violence of any kind *
When a child does not follow the behavior guidelines, we will take the following actions as behavior problems progress.
- PLT instructors/assistants will redirect the child to more appropriate behavior.
- If inappropriate behavior continues, the child will be reminded of behavior guidelines and will be asked by the Program Manager to commit to correcting their behavior.
- If a child does not meet the expectations to correct inappropriate behavior, he/she will be referred back to the Program Manager and a parent or guardian will be notified.
- If inappropriate behavior continues after the programming staff has intervened, as a final step the child will be dismissed from the program.
Bullying is inexcusable and we have a firm policy against all types of bullying. Each child is expected to treat all other children with respect and to help each other achieve the best experience possible. When instances of bullying are made aware to our staff, we will address them seriously.
Computer Usage Policy
Some programs may involve computer usage. These computers have internet access. Although we strive to preserve the learning environment and to safeguard the children from inappropriate websites and chatrooms; parental control software does not absolutely prevent the permeation of inappropriate websites or pop-up advertisement windows. We encourage parents and guardians to discuss with your child or children, what is appropriate and inappropriate internet use.
