Guidance and Discipline
A key component in the operation of the Morro Bay United Methodist Children’s Center is cooperation and communication between parents and staff. This is particularly true in the area of discipline, Communication, positive guidance and redirection are the discipline techniques we utilize.
Guidance is a positive term involved in working with a child to develop internal control over his/her behavior. The MBUMCC believes every child is an individual with a unique set of values, background and experiences. It is our goal to model tolerance and problem solving by demonstrating and encouraging positive communication skills that make for harmony and understanding.
We endeavor to teach inner control through limiting and discouraging unacceptable behaviors, and offering acceptable solutions. This involves learning to problem solve and make responsible choices.
The teacher’s redirection is respectful, sensitive, gentle, and loving yet firm. Any ongoing situation(s) will be discussed with the parents to ensure a cooperative approach.
