To educate a child is an ongoing process and sometimes it is necessary to discipline a learner when his/her behaviour is unacceptable, for example: biting, swearing, hitting other children, etc.
We use one of the following methods, depending on the situation:
We implement methods of prevention and distraction, especially with learners younger than 4.
The 5-star system (star chart)
To motivate positive behaviour, we have a 5-star reward system in place in the Yellow and Purple (4-6 year old learners) classes. For good behaviour and diligence during learning activities, a star will be rewarded to the children according to merit.
When the requirements above are not met, a star is taken away/forfeited.
When a child has 5 stars, he/she will be rewarded with an item from the treasure chest.
