Positive Behavior Support

teacher working with kidIf you’re a parent, you’re familiar with challenging behavior. You might have experienced defiance or aggression or hurtful words. Most of the time, this behavior is the result of a child having not yet developed the social, emotional, language, and cognitive skills to behave in more positive ways. But challenging behavior and positive behavior are on two sides of the same coin!

As early childhood educators, we aim to create positive learning opportunities from challenging behavior. It’s our job to teach children positive way to deal with challenges. Our classroom environment and daily routine are designed to be both engaging and age appropriate for the children in each classroom.
