At Joeys, we believe that children flourish best in an ordered environment in which everyone knows what is expected of them, and children are free to develop their play and learning without fear of being hurt or hindered by anyone else. We aim to work towards a situation in which children can develop self-esteem in an atmosphere of mutual respect and encouragement. We believe in positive discipline, praising and endorsing desirable behaviour such as kindness and a willingness to share. Physical punishment and humiliation will never be used and any behaviour problems will be handled in a developmentally appropriate fashion in partnership with the child’s parents. Our full Behaviour Policy is available at sessions or on request.
