Discipline polices:   

BES helps children develop self-control and learn acceptable forms of social behavior by explaining the limits and giving close supervision. Positive reinforcement will always be used as well as redirection .BES expects children to behave appropriately as harmful physical aggression or distraction of materials is unacceptable. Staff shares these expectations with children and their parents as they adjust to the school. Staff help children to resolve conflicts by facilitating their use of words in explaining their needs and feelings and guiding them towards positive conflict resolution. Staff encourages children to find acceptable ways to problem solve by being aware of the activities of the children and by intervening when necessary.

 

Sickness policies:

Sickness in children is a very difficult area to manage in schools. A sick child has an impact on everyone. Our policies are designed with this in mind.

We will call parents or authorized person’s as soon as a child shows symptoms of illness during the day, and request that the child Is picked up as soon as possible. The director may also refuse to admit the child who appears to be ill.

Children may return to school after the contagion has passed.

We strongly recommend that children with questionable symptoms should stay home.
