Nurturing Positive Behavior
As a parent of a young child, you’ve likely experience challenging behavior, such as defiance or aggression or hurtful words. This behavior usually occurs because a child has not yet developed the social, emotional, language, and cognitive skills to engage in more positive behavior.
At Childtime, our goal is address instances of challenging behavior as positive learning experiences. This means teaching children to deal with challenges in a constructive, positive way. We have designed our classroom spaces and daily routines to provide age-appropriate, engaging experiences geared toward the specific age of child in that classroom.
We call our approach Positive Behavior Support and we offer numerous tools to stress and reinforce positive behavior support. For example, our proprietary myPath app provides strategies for dealing with challenging behavior and create a positive school environment.
