Q: How do you handle discipline?

A: We promote and use positive approaches to discipline. Just Montessori Inc. grounds its entire program in the significant relationship between adult and child. A positive, supportive and loving bond enhances the child's self-esteem and sense of security. The role model provided by the adult teaches children positive problem-solving techniques and courtesy. Children are continuously taught how to solve problems, deal with frustration and express feelings in a manner that is growth-producing and positive.

Q: What is a "Work Cycle"?

A: There are many features that characterize a secure yet stimulating environment appropriate to the needs of a young child. Safety in the physical sense is a given need. Ideally, there should also be an intangible quality or "feeling" that permeates the entire school, emanating from the staff, present in each classroom and nurtured by the teacher. Montessorians seek to provide positive support, believing that the good within each child will flourish and develop. Dr. Montessori said, "Never speak ill of a child in his presence or in his absence." She intuitively understood that even a slightly derogatory remark regarding an absent child sets a tone, no matter how unintentional, that could be damaging to the child.

A positive emotional climate is the responsibility and mandate of the adult. To maintain that climate, the children gradually accept simple ground rules. We are not free to harm others or to disturb the work of others. Lessons involving grace and courtesy are also implemented in daily life.
