Behavior Management

The behavior expected from students during the school day is the same as expected at after school workshops. This is a combination of common courtesy and safety considerations.  Staff reinforcement of positive behavior is the preferred disciplinary technique to help the children learn self-control and responsibility for their actions. When negative behavior occurs a child may be reminded about appropriate behavior, asked to sit quietly for a short period of time, or helped privately to work out the solution with another child. The staff will report any incidents to the parent/guardian at pick up.  Our workshops cannot serve children who display chronically disruptive behavior toward other children or staff. This behavior is defined as verbal or physical abusive behavior such as persistent bullying, harassment, hitting, biting, kicking, punching, spitting, swearing, departure or attempted departure from the playground or program room without permission, stealing, ignoring or disobeying the rules outlined by the program, or requiring constant staff attention.  If you have any concerns or questions regarding any incidents that your child is involved in, behavioral concerns, etc., please contact MPCE at (201) 444-2030.  Leave your name, telephone number, a detailed message and we will return your call as soon as possible. All issues will be resolved in an environment of mutual respect.

Discharge Policy

In the event that a child is continually disruptive, the instructors, along with Ms. Bache will assess the behavior history of the child, and review the steps taken to correct stated behavior in making their decision.  If the severity of any problem is great enough to threaten the safety of the child or other children or instructors in the workshops, or be deemed too disruptive to continue, discharge will be effective immediately after the parent/guardian is notified.
