Guidance and Discipline Policy

At Jennifer's Family Childcare, each child is recognized as an individual little person. It is very important that a child's development is nurtured through caring, patience and understanding.

It is always a challenge to provide the proper discipline for each child individually, but by offering a straightforward explanation to limits, each child will develop the communication skills necessary for their early childhood development. Projecting a positive attitude is essential in reinforcing appropriate behavior.

Because toddlers do not always understand everything said to them, it is only fair to eliminate as many temptations as possible. They need freedom to explore. A home cluttered with "no-nos" will deprive him or her of this freedom and create more restrictions than he or she can possibly absorb. It will also frustrate the child.

Some children can be stubborn and a power struggle may ensue, at which time it may be necessary to offer choices instead of stating what is expected of the child. It is also important to acknowledge the child's feelings before setting limits.

Children's interaction with one another is also carefully watched so that they learn to respect one another. The children are encouraged to make amends through thoughtful apologies.

Under no circumstances will children be humiliated, neglected, isolated, spoken to in a harsh manner, deprived of food or other basic needs, slapped or spanked.

Young children do not develop well when they are pressured, frightened, threatened or punished.

As the parent, you may have some concerns or wish to offer suggestions and I am here to listen. I will do my best to follow the same guidelines and limits that you may have already set and you can take comfort in knowing I will offer the best care possible for your child.

 

Childcare Wellness/Illness Policy

The health and well being of your child is my number one concern but the reality is, children do become ill. It is important to take preventative measures such as:

  • hand washing
  • nutritious food
  • proper diaper handling techniques
  • proper personal grooming habits
  • keeping the environment clean

As the parent, you too can assist in making sure that your child is safe by informing me if your child has any allergies or any other medical condition.

If your child has become ill, I require 24 hours notice from the time of diagnosis. The following would be some symptoms of illness that would exclude your child from attending childcare in my home:

  • nausea
  • diarrhea
  • vomiting
  • difficulty breathing
  • fever of 38.3 degrees Celsius or more
  • sore throat or difficulty swallowing
  • infected skin or eyes or an undiagnosed rash
  • severe itching of body or scalp
  • any known or suspected communicable disease

If you as the parent are not able to pick your child up, alternate arrangements must be available. While your child is waiting to be picked up, I understand that it is my responsibility to make sure he/she is comfortable and away from the other children.

Before your child may return to childcare in my home, he or she must be free of all symptoms. A note from your family practitioner may be required.

If your child has any special needs such as allergies or regular administration of medication is required, I should also be notified.
