Discipline at PALS
Our approach to education and childcare is unlike any other, and discipline is no different. At PALS, our teachers practice something called “Conscious Discipline,” developed by Dr. Becky Bailey. The main component of this approach is that children are encouraged to solve problems and conflicts for themselves. If necessary, their teacher will also re-direct them to a different activity. If neither of these solutions proves helpful, the student is given time in a “safe space” where they are assisted with some calming techniques. We believe this discipline practice fits in well with the overall philosophy at our preschool.
A Day in the Life
Your preschooler is supported and safe at PALS Praise and Leadership Schools. Each of their days here begins with group activities, and your child will be given a specific classroom task they are in charge of. This is part of our commitment to making our students feel part of their broader community. Throughout the day, your child will also experience lesson plans that involve activities such as essential language skills and pattern recognition. There is also plenty of creative playtime, drawing and more. PALS Praise and Leadership Schools take great pride in offering an educational curriculum that includes both individual and group activities.
Our curriculum focuses on goal setting, problem-solving and decision making. It’s imperative to us that communication and interaction with others are values encouraged in PALS students. When you come for a parent tour, you’ll see just what we mean. Our teachers use a hybrid of the following programs and educational theories in their classrooms:
- Brian Cambourne’s conditions of learning
- Dr. Becky Bailey’s Conscious Discipline
- Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligence theory
- Don Holdaway’s foundations of literacy
- HighScope preschool program
In addition to everything mentioned above, PALS Praise and Leadership Schools also feature fantastic teachers, nutritious hot lunches, field trips and more.
