Lil' Cubs is a nurturing community that helps children understand how to treat others and how they should be treated. We will also help children acquire the skills to cooperate and negotiate, make friends and resolve problems and conflicts. As children learn to interact with peers and adults in complex ways, they become productive members of the group.
Challenging Behavior - the teaching staff at the center is trained, responsive, respectful and purposeful. The teachers anticipate and take steps to prevent potential challenging behaviors. They evaluate and change their responses based on individual needs. The teaching staff will guide children to develop self-control and orderly conduct in relationship to peers and adults. Children will be taught social, communication, and emotional regulation skills. If a child displays persistent, serious, and challenging behavior, the teaching staff, parents, and AEA support staff will work as a team to develop an individualized plan that supports the child's success. In the event that all measures have been taken and the behavior continues and disrupts the other children, the family will be given a two week notice of service termination.
Aggressive physical behavior toward staff or children is unacceptable. Teaching staff will intervene immediately when a child become physically aggressive to protect all of the children and encourage more acceptable behavior. If physical behavior continues, the child will be given a two week notice of termination of services. If the behavior is extremely aggressive and endanger other children, termination will be immediate.
