Guiding Children's Behaviour

We work closely with families, as we value consistency between the ELC and home.

Our approach is based on the Responsible Thinking Process (Edward Ford) which uses questions to help children make choices that are positive for them and those around them.  We believe children respond to consistency, support, appropriate limits and facilitation of problem solving.

We support children to reflect on their behaviour and understand the consequences of their actions and how these affect others.  Again, this is done with the basic understanding that God’s Word provides complete teaching for how we should live, and interact with others.  It is our moral and spiritual compass and provides an unambiguous template for appropriate behaviour and attitudes.

We provide outlets for children to explore emotion, learn ways to deal with varied emotions and express themselves in a safe environment.
