Young children develop competency in their abilities along with an understanding of emotions and empathy towards others. Winter Park Day Nursery follows the Conscious Discipline character-development program developed by Dr. Becky Bailey. Classroom rules are based on safety, a feeling of belonging and being recognized as a valuable member of the group. Children learn that they are important as they help keep the classroom safe and running smoothly by doing simple jobs and reminding each other of the rules. Teachers help children develop conflict resolution skills and work toward win-win solutions.
