At Ages in Stages we strive to create an interesting and exciting environment in which your child can grow. Our goal is to guide the childrens behavior to help them gain control of themselves and interact with others in an appropriate manner. On occasion we may need to correct a child for inappropriate behavior. We use guidance techniques that are age appropriate, fair, consistent and positive. We do not administer cruel, unusual, hazardous, frightening, or humiliating discipline. We use redirection, problem solving techniques and time outs.
When a child is out of control (i.e.: throwing a temper tantrum, kicking, hitting, biting another person, or screaming) they will be removed from the classroom until they have calmed down. If the child continues to disrupt the entire classroom after they have been returned to the classroom, the Director will decide whether or not to call the parent.
There are children who need more care than we can possibly give. If we feel that the childs behavior is a safety issue we will inform the parent or guardian so that we can find a way to work with your child. If we continue to have problems we can access our resources through the Seattle-King County Health Department. We will take the following steps when a childs discipline becomes an issue:
1. Conference between Teacher, Child and the Director. Director will also talk to the parent at this time.
2. Conference between Teacher, Parent and the Director.
3. Have the Parent sign a Health Department Screening form and call our Health Nurse.
4. Have the child screened to determine if we can accommodate the child in a better manner.
5. Termination. A two-week notice will be given so that the parent can find a suitable center for their child. Termination is a last resort.

At Ages in Stages Childcare we provide a home away from home. We teach and care for your child as if they were family. Our low turn over rate both with children and staff can ensure that your child can grow and develop in a familiar environment.
We do not discriminate against anyone based on race, color, gender, national origin or sexual orientation. Everyone is welcome here at our school.
We teach everything to prepare a child for school and life. Everyday we teach colors, numbers, shapes, letters, how to write their name, respect, manners, and how to be an independent person.
Once you sign your child up for our school we have an open door policy where we welcome and encourage parents to come to us with any questions about the development of your child and how we can work together to make your child be the best they can be.
