CODE OF CONDUCT
CREATING A WARM, SAFE and NURTURING ENVIRONMENT
At Healthy Kids Programs we set behavior expectations so that every child can thrive, feel safe and interact positively with others. We ask that all parents partner with us on this important issue by going over this code of conduct with your child(ren) and letting them know that you support this.
BEFORE/AFTER SCHOOL CODE OF CONDUCT
We will always place safety first, which will mean regular buddy checks, safety drills and procedures to ensure children safety. Safety procedures priority #1.
Be respectful, honest and kind. Use positive language, be gracious competitors, show good sports etiquette and share.
Be considerate to others and to the environment by cleaning up after yourselves.
In a group situation, please no talking while someone else is speaking, always raise your hand if you have something to contribute and use inside voices indoors.
Follow your Site staff directions, if you do not understand, ask questions!!!
No throwing things, pushing, roughhousing, profanity or demeaning language.
Always engage a staff member to settle an issue between children. Don’t take matters into your own hands.
If a student does not follow the code of conduct we will follow a progressive discipline philosophy and will always bring the parent early on in the process.
