We believe that discipline should build self-worth, increase social competence, teach problem-solving skills and enhance the dignity of the child. Positive discipline begins by preventing problems from happening. Our program is designed to give children an environment that helps them manage their own behavior. Here rules are for everyone. Each child is introduced to our four (4) rules. 1. We do not hit each other. 2. We do not hurt our belongings. 3. We do inside things inside and outside things outside. 4. We take care of ourselves. Even when the staff has done everything they can to avoid trouble, it may still occur. Our standard practices are: 1. We allow natural consequences to happen. EXAMPLE the child’s food may get cold if they dawdle when washing their hands 2. We enforce logical consequences. EXAMPLE if a child spills milk; they have to clean up the spilled milk 3. Children are given choices that redirect their behavior. EXAMPLE if they are running in the classroom; they would be stopped and asked what center they want to play in, blocks or puzzles 4. If children are hurting each other, they are protected and assisted with expressing their thoughts and feelings EXAMPLE “DON’T HIT ME ANYMORE. I’M ANGRY WHEN YOU HIT ME!” 5. If a child is hurting other children. They are asked to leave the group for a few minutes, and get themselves together. This is called time-out. 6. When children are out of control and a danger to themselves or others, the staff demonstrates control, reassurance and acceptance by holding the child and talking to him quietly until the child is in control of him/herself. This is called a therapeutic restraint. If children have special behavioral needs, the treatment team at Children’s Place meets and designs a plan of intervention services called a treatment plan. Parents participate in the planning and the review process. Time-out maximums are one minute for each year of age. We DO NOT USE: 1. Corporal punishment – which includes spanking, slapping, biting, hitting, shaking, etc. 2. Deprive a child of food, water, naps or bathroom facilities 3. Unsupervised isolation 4. Improperly restricting children’s movement, such as tying a child to a chair We ask parents to refrain from any form of corporal punishment while on the premises of Children’s Place. _________________________________________________ NAME DATE One must be signed yearly in August _______________________________________________ WITNESS RELEASE: AUTHORIZATION TO TREAT Children's Place, Inc. is a family resource center providing year-round Therapeutic Behavioral Services; Parenting Services, and counseling and treatment services for children. On our site, we serve children in two additional levels of care; regular childcare and special needs childcare. Services are provided in a classroom where all children receive the level of service for which they are referred. This approach is called inclusion-based services, and it allows children to learn from one another as well as from the professionals. We use the help of many professionals whose areas of specialization may include education, social work, mental retardation, psychology, psychiatry, speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, counseling, and medicine. Children are observed in the classroom by these professionals and screened for additional service needs. The staff of Children’s Place participates in a community-based multi-disciplinary team. We consider this form of community consultation to be essential to our treatment program. Team members are all required to maintain confidentiality. Team members include: Aiken County DSS, 2nd Circuit Solicitors Office, Wagner Police Department, Aiken County DJJ, Aiken County Guardian-Ad-Litem Program, Aiken Department of Public Safety, Aiken County Public Schools, Aiken-Barnwell Mental Health, Aiken County Sheriff’s Department, Helping Hands, Aiken Center for Alcohol and Other Drugs Services, North August Department of Public Safety, and the Aiken County Department of Health. A part of the services provided at Children's Place, Inc. is billing the funding source for payment of our fees. This could be Medicaid, SOVA, ABC Vouchers, or ABC Special Needs Vouchers. Part of the Medicaid funding will include notifying United Way of Aiken County so they can release match funding for Medicaid. __________________________________________________________________________________________ I understand that signing my name gives the staff of Children's Place, Inc. permission to bill my payment source and for all the treatment services to begin. ________________________________________________ SIGNATURE DATE ____________________________________ WITNESS PARENT AGREEMENT Please initial statements that you agree to: _____ I have been given a Child Care Handbook. _____ I agree to follow the procedures in the handbook including: Arrival Time Home Visits (if applicable) Program Hours and late fees Fees (if applicable) Ill Children Medication Discipline Birthdays Outside Play Meals & Snacks Holidays and School Closing Policy Approved Adults to Pick-up with ID _____ I hereby grant permission to the Children’s Place, Inc., to record, magnetically (i.e. audio tapes) or digitally (i.e. video), or to photograph my child for the purpose of education, assessment, program evaluation and public release of information (newspapers, magazines, brochures). _____ I hereby grant permission to Children’s Place, Inc. to take my child on neighborhood walking trips (i.e. looking for leaves, houses, and birds). _____ I will complete a Special Care Plan with staff for my child and follow it, if applicable.
