Rainbow Daycare implements a positive reinforcement policy and praises children whenever possible, being careful not to overdo it.
Rules are simple and clearly explained so that children not only know the rules, but know the reason for the rules. Rules are kept consistent and appropriate for the child’s age and developmental level. Great care is taken not to overdo the number of rules. If and when problems arise, the children are reminded that it is the behaviour not the child that is in question. If the child’s behaviour continues, the child is redirected to another area and it is explained why they were redirected to the other area. Children are encouraged to return when they are ready and rewarded with words and encouragement.
