What is the GTG discipline philosophy?
GTG Preschool emphasizes developmentally appropriate positive guidance and discipline. Developmentally appropriate discipline focuses on age, individual and cultural appropriateness. Discipline is administered in a loving and consistent manner in order to encourage self-control, respect for others and self-confidence. To help children adjust to this process, the following guidelines are set at GTG:

  • Children are always treated with respect.
  • Children will assist in developing simple and concise rules and limits.
  • No child will be subject to physical punishment, corporal punishment, verbal abuse or threats.
  • No child will be deprived of meals or snacks or any part thereof for disciplinary reasons.
  • No child will be deprived of outdoor time or rest as means of punishment.

Any form of punishment that violates the spirit of these standards of discipline, even though it may not be specifically mentioned as forbidden, is prohibited.

What if my child gets sick or hurt at school?
If your child becomes ill while at school, we will contact the parents.  If the parents cannot be reached, we will call the alternate emergency contacts.  If your child gets hurt while at school, we will take appropriate actions and have documentation for the parents to sign.  If any accident occurs involving blood, or any part of the body above the shoulders, we will contact the parents immediately.
