Abracadabra Preschool is a place for growth and learning. Our philosophy of discipline is that it involves teaching, learning, and helping. The goal is to teach each child to manage his/her own behavior, to get to know each individual child to better understand their behavior and to help the children by making rules and expectations reasonable and clear. With the High/Scope curriculum, we believe that many management problems are prevented because the classroom environment is carefully planned. Many other problems, of course, must be dealt with on the spot. Our ultimate goal in handling management issues is to help children become aware of their own actions, of how those actions affect the people and things in their environment and of how the choices they make can help them resolve difficulties and conflicts.
