Discipline Policy

Here at Trinity Day School discipline is something we do for the children not to them.  We see discipline as a means of assisting children in establishing self-control.  At the beginning of the year children get center rules and expectations….rules for safety, care of property, consideration to others.  Setting limits gives children a sense of security.  We will help them work out problems, redirect when the situation allows, and provide a safe place to be alone when needed.

Disruptive behavior is behavior that prevents other children from feeling safe or being able to engage in effective learning.  Behavior or language that makes another child feel threatened or afraid, bullying, violence, destroying or damaging equipment, or any behavior that makes it difficult or impossible for the classroom teacher to implement a safe successful program for all children.

In the event that a child’s behavior is disruptive, harmful or negative to the extent that it is detrimental to the other children, staff, or the program the following policy will be implemented:

  • Teachers will bring to the Director’s attention written observation and documentation to support a concern.

  • Parents will be required to attend a conference to discuss the concerns and work with the staff to identify possible solutions and develop an agreed upon plan of action.

  • An appropriate action plan will be implemented and the classroom teacher will continue to collect observations and documentation.

  • A check in conference will be scheduled after 2 weeks if positive progress is not being made.

  • A 3rd conference will be scheduled if sufficient progress is not being made after 30 days to resolve the behavior concerns.  At this time a child may be removed from the program.

  • The Director reserves the right to dismiss from the program any child having behaviors that interfere with the quality or success of our program.
