Class Behavior Agreement
The following behavior agreement is valid for all child care situations where PACHEK volunteers and/or paid child care workers are responsible for the care and safety of my children. This is to include co-op classes and nursery.
I understand that students are expected to maintain Christian standards of kindness, honesty, and respect for authority at all times, participate in activities with a positive attitude, follow instructions, treat other students with thoughtfulness, and to encourage each other.
The students will be taught to respect the host facility by keeping the area clean and not to deface the property with either complacency or any type of vandal action. I agree to take personal, financial responsibility for any damages caused by a member of my family.
Class teachers/helpers will generally be responsible for ‘first line’ discipline (i.e. ‘please sit down’, ‘Johnny, please don’t hit’, etc.)
After this attempt to set the behavior right, the teacher/helper makes the decision to go to the parent. It is the parent’s responsibility to respond if their child has become a disruption beyond the ‘first line’ of discipline. I understand that other parents
will be, at times, correcting my child. I understand that if I have consistently had to take my child out of classes due to behavior, then the leadership may make the decision to keep my child out of non-parent activities.
If I volunteer as a class teacher/helper, I will follow the guidelines of lovingly providing the ‘first line’ of discipline for all children.
I will use my good judgment to decide when it is necessary to involve the parent. If I am needed to correct another family’s child, I will do so in love and with patience. I agree to follow the PACHEK policies for discipline and conflict resolution.
