According to the dictionary, the word discipline means to impart knowledge and skill, or literally, to teach. However, it is often associated with punishment and control. There is a great deal of controversy about the appropriate ways to discipline children, and early care teachers are often confused about effective ways to set limits and instill self-control in the children within their classrooms.
Positive guidance sets young children on the path toward gaining independence. Childcare professionals, in recognizing early childhood as a crucial time for learning, must implement positive guidance to promote development. This is why we here at H&H Child Care Training have developed courses on positive discipline to help teachers implement this skill within their daily interactions with children. Such courses are Viewing Guidance in a Positive Light, or Staying Positive: Guidance for Preschoolers just to name a few.
H & H Child Care Training Courses grant .2 CEUs or more as well as awarding state-approved clock hours of 2 or more for all childcare centers, and family childcare providers in many states.
