Our Guidelines

Staff members employ guidance techniques based on the Ministry of Health booklet "Guiding and Caring", a copy of which is available to you online.

At KACCS we:

  • use clear communication.
  • have clear guidelines and reasonable limits, i.e.:. "We walk inside." and "Chairs are for sitting on."
  • employ logical consequences, i.e. : "It looks like you want to run and climb. Let’s get you ready to go outside.
  • provide appropriate role modeling through actions and language.
  • have realistic expectations based on knowledge of child development and individual temperament.
  • provide an environment and program that are organized to promote successful outcomes.
  • maintain an atmosphere which is nurturing, caring and positive.

Guidelines are:

  • Every child’s ideas and feeling will be respected and listened to.
  • No child will be subjected to harsh, belittling, degrading verbal, emotional or physical treatment.
  • No child will be humiliated, deprived of meals, rest or necessary use of the toilet.
  • No child will be physically restrained as a form of punishment or control.
  • No child will be kept from other children without adult supervision.
