Supporting Positive Behavior
When young children express challenging behaviors such as defiance, aggression, or harsh words, it’s often because they haven’t developed the skills—emotional, language, social, and cognitive—that lead to more positive behavior.
At La Petite Academy, these behaviors are treated as learning opportunities. To help our teachers, we offer them tools and resources for Positive Behavior Support.
Our myPath app is full of strategies and ideas that encourage children’s positive behavior—in the classroom and beyond.
