Riley Crossing teachers believe that every situation is a learning tool. When misbehavior happens, we look to see how we can help our toddlers and preschooler develop skills to work through the issue. We also carefully plan our environment to help prevent issues from arising - with large rooms and longer times exploring indoors and outdoors. We believe fewer transitions allows children to be more engaged in the learning that is happening all day long!
