Achieving Positive Behavior
With young children, challenging behaviors can include things like defiance or aggression or hurtful words. Most of the time, the reason for this behavior is that children have not yet developed the important social, emotional, language, and cognitive skills that lead to more positive behavior.
At the Children’s Courtyard, challenging behavior is a learning opportunity. For our teachers, we offer tools and resources for Positive Behavior Support.
Our exclusive myPath app provides ideas and strategies to guide children toward positive behavior when they are in classrooms—and beyond.
