Our aim at the nursery is to ensure that the children in our care are happy, safe and well cared for. When it comes to managing behaviour our strategy is to encourage and reward positive behaviour and respect for others with lots of praise and attention.
Children are supported and encouraged by adults to recognise and express their feelings appropriately through words, and play.
Staff aim to help the children gain problem solving strategies to enable them to find their own solutions to conflict.
We aim to do this by encouraging children to talk to each other and us, for staff to intervene when necessary to help resolve conflicts that will inevitably occur. We will make opportunities to encourage children to take turns/share, and sand timers are used as a visual aid to assist in this.
