POLICY

Our Guidance Policy


The Sundre Daycare Centre provides an environment where each child develops independence, where each child's self esteem is enhanced and where each child is encouraged to care for others. We want children to like themselves for who they are, to feel safe and confident and to experiences successes every day. We recognize children's developmental abilities and boundaries and we accept them for who they are. We understand that children are growing and learning about their world daily and how they are to interact in it.

The Sundre Daycare Centre spends time with each family to learn about the child and explore their favorite things, their fears, joys and hopes as well as their culture and traditions. Our goal is to blend the family's beliefs and values with the philosophy of the Sundre Daycare Centre. Staff and families must work together to explore and celebrate each child's individuality.

The Sundre Daycare Centre will never use any form of physical punishment or neglect. We will not accept the use of any harsh, belittling or degrading statements. We do not condone withdrawing needs or comforts (food, clothing, shelter, or security items) to modify behaviour. The Sundre Daycare Centre will also not remove or isolate the child from the group (i.e. time out) as punishment. We believe in positive reinforcement of accepted behaviors to foster improvements.

Our Privacy Policy


It is necessary for the Sundre Daycare Centre to obtain personal information from families to properly run our program. Information required will be obtained via a registration form prior to commencement of care. The centre is committed to the appropriate and responsible use of all such information. Each child's file is kept secured in a locked cabinet within a private, locked office. Following a child's withdrawal from the program, their information will be kept, locked and secured for up to seven years at which time it will be destroyed.

Guidance Policy / Child Discipline Policy / Bullying Policy


Valley Kids Out of School Care strives to provide an environment where each child develops independence, where each child’s self esteem is enhanced and where each child is encouraged to care for others.  We want children to like themselves for who they are, to feel safe and confident and to experience successes everyday. We recognize children’s developmental abilities and boundaries and we accept them for who they are. Therefore we will not tolerate incidences of bullying within our program. If incidences of bullying do occur we will do our best to help the child who is the aggressor to discover better ways to deal with their issues and frustrations. We will do this through open dialogue with the child and if necessary their family recommending alternative actions that the child could use. We may also recommend that the child speaks with a trained counselor to help them manage their aggravation issues.

 

Unfortunately if incidents of bullying continue the child will be asked to leave our program. Children are encouraged to always be respectful of the other children and staff. This is taught by the staff modeling positive behaviors such as not interrupting the child who is speaking as well as helping the children to learn strategies that support positive relationships.
