Children are never smacked or physically punished in any way. Inappropriate behaviour is not dealt with by excluding the child in any way, but by distraction or by discussion and explanation, depending on the age of the child. Self-discipline and co-operation are encouraged through reward, praise and adult example. You as the parent will be informed and consulted so that we may work together to resolve any such occurrences.
If for safety reasons your child has needed to be restrained to prevent personal injury to your child, other children, an adult or serious damage to property, for a period of time while at nursery, it will be recorded and you as the parent/carer are informed.
We have a zero rated tolerance towards any adults aggressive behaviour or use of physical or verbal abuse towards any persons within our setting. Any adults displaying this behaviour shall be removed from the premises.
