1. LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR / OWNER
Dear Au Beau Sejour Parents,
Our entire Teachers and Staff are working hard to ensure that our school year begins smoothly, and with great enthusiasm! Our hope and goal is that our students are smiling as they enter their school. We interpret our students' joys as a sign of comfort, and their belonging to our Preschool community. Children need to feel safe in their school; We look forward to a great year with all our families. Community building is essential to an international school like ours. We come from many countries and varied experiences. This Parent’s Handbook is key for all to understand our community and to build the knowledge of how our school works. Please become familiar with the Handbook’s sections regarding school life and the expectations of our school.. We will strive to provide a positive program that is safe, nurturing and fun for all children. Our mission is to assist you, the parents, in helping your children become the best that they can be.
Welcome to Au Beau Sejour French Preschool, and may your child(ren) and your family come to cherish being a part of our community.
Coralie Leclerc Sobhani
AU BEAU SEJOUR DIRECTOR / OWNER
2. WELCOME TO AU BEAU SEJOUR FRENCH PRESCHOOL
We welcome you aboard and look forward to happy and exciting school year ahead.
Your child’s time spent at ABS is supremely important to all of us. Years of practical experience have shown us that the best results occur when we work closely with you to establish rapport and common goals for your child in the year ahead. Let’s coordinate to make this a wonderful season of personal growth and discovery for your child! Your input is very much appreciated and is one of our most valuable resources.
Please read this Parent Handbook in its entirety and keep it on hand for reference. In the pages that follow, you’ll find just about everything you need to know about our school. Be sure to file this with your other school records for easy access. This Parent Handbook is updated each year, so stay current with this one and recycle last year’s.
3. VISION STATEMENT
Au Beau Séjour French Preschool is a welcoming community in a comfortable environment, with a unique school spirit, which challenges and inspires all of our students to achieve their ultimate potential.
4. MISSION STATEMENT
Au Beau Séjour French Preschool provides a challenging education inspired by the Education National curriculum in France.
Our mission is to provide a warm, nurturing environment for our international students. We welcome children from all cultures and background and always value their identity and heritage.
Our French speaking Teachers motivate and guide our children in becoming independent, confident, caring, in a French immersion setting. Our curriculum focuses in depth on the development of a second language. Our vocabulary-rich curriculum helps our children develop vocabulary in a stress-free environment. While building a second language our children are eager to communicate and apply what they have learned in class into their everyday lives and routine.
At Au Beau Séjour, we make learning FUN! Our children’s well-being, happiness, academic and language development are at the foundation of our learning model.
5. BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND SNACK TIME
The building blocks of your child’s body should be as strong and pure as possible. We invest a tremendous amount of time and energy to ensure that high-quality foods are always provided.
The school provides homemade, organic or natural and wholesome meals BREAKFAST-LUNCH-SNACK, which we enjoy together as a community. In addition, the children participate daily in preparing food for their teachers and friends.
Meals are freshly prepared by ABS cooks in our private kitchen.
ABS cooks are a big part of our students' daily. Our menu are child friendly, varied, and appropriate portions and nutrition guidelines are respected.
6. AU BEAU SEJOUR STAFF / TEACHERS
Our teachers are native French speakers who share their passion and talents with your children and our community. Teachers actively participate in workshops, classes, and In-service Days to update and enhance their teaching skills. To ensure the safety of students and staff, all staff must receive the appropriate security clearance. All staff members and volunteers who have contact with students, or who have access to confidential information about students have complete required eligibility clearance. procedures. Fingerprinting and criminal records are checked upon hire, and they remain on file and updated.
7. HEALTH AND SAFETY TRAINING FOR TEACHERS
Our teachers keep current with their CPR training by taking a refresher course every other year. All teachers are also trained in first aid, injury prevention, and infectious disease control. ABS maintains certification according to requirements.
All Early Childhood Educators are mandated reporters by California law and are required to report any suspicion child abuse. This requires them to report any reasonably suspected or alleged abuse of an individual under the age of 18 years of age to a designated agency.
8. MONTHLY COMMUNITY EVENTS
Throughout the school year there are various meetings scheduled at the school (i.e., potlucks, informational meetings, or Parent Association meetings). On occasion we have minimal parent sign up and the event will be cancelled. We remind families of events through updated SHUTTERFLY, Facebook (when appropriate), monthly newsletters, Emails, and posted signs.
Each classroom has two room parents. A signup sheet will be posted in your child’s room. The appointed Room Parents will be named on Back to School night. Responsibilities are routinely passed along to parents annually, or 3 times a year, making this a great way to get to know other parents while actively participating in your child’s school experience.
Volunteering takes a wide variety of forms:
Organize with the teacher an activity in your child/ren’s classroom
Classroom and Open house volunteering.
ABS monthly potlucks (announced in advance, from 3:45 – 5:45 for all to join.)
ABS monthly open House for prospective parents. Usually 9:30AM to 10:30AM
Field Trips: ABS may have one planned field trip per school year.
VOLUNTEERING IS FRIEND- RAISING! Numerous friend-raising events happen throughout the school year, with opportunities to volunteer. Au Beau Sejour works with parent volunteers to support and plan these events in line with its goal to build a sense of community at Au Beau Sejour French Preschool.
Volunteer opportunities suit every taste and interest. Our Volunteers are at the heart of our school, and help make these special things happen. Please contact us for further information.

You may bring a note, personally signed and dated, authorizing us to release your child into the care of the designated person. Be sure to tell your child’s teacher. Before releasing your child, we will check an I.D. with photo to verify that person’s identity. A WRITTEN NOTE IS NECESSARY A PHONE CALL WILL NOT SUFFICE. Our specific goal is to ensure the ultimate safety of your child while providing peace of mind for you as a parent. In the meantime, you can avoid putting a friend or relative through this cumbersome procedure by making sure their name is currently listed on your emergency form in the school office.
13. CHANGES, WITHDRAWALS, AND TERMINATION
An eight week written and dated notice is required if you plan to reduce the number of attendance days or hours. This allows the school the time it needs to fill the space. An unforeseen problem or change arises, please see the director immediately.
Every effort will be made to work with parents and guardians to resolve any difficulties that may occur at school. We are available to you. Parent conferences are scheduled twice in the school year. Phone calls, emails, and a meeting will be used to communicate openly so that we may find resolve for all concerned. We recognize that not every situation is appropriate for every child. If, after a significant effort on both sides, our program is not suitable for your child’s well-being, we will find an alternative plan together.
Termination - If ABS feels that we are unable to meet the specific needs of a particular child, we may ask that the parents to seek appropriate outside help. Alternatively, if the child’s needs are sufficiently outside our ability to meet them, require an inordinate amount of 1 on 1 attention from teachers, and/or the child’s dysfunctional behavior poses a threat to himself or the emotional or physical safety of the other children, we reserve the right to terminate the care agreement on a timeline that is in the child’s and school’s best interest, which, under rare circumstances, may be immediately.
Other reasons that may result in the termination of a specific care agreement are as follows:
Non-payment for preschool services and/or lack of adherence to our tuition payment policy.
- Lack of parental cooperation with the program’s efforts to resolve differences and/or to meet the child’s needs through parent/staff meetings, conferences, or seeking professional help.
- Failure to comply with the school’s schedule, policies, regulations, and procedures.
Parent exhibits behavior endangering the children, families, or staff, including abusive behaviors and/or verbal threats by parents toward the program staff or other parents (may be grounds for immediate termination).
Child exhibits special needs or needs related to serious illnesses that the program cannot meet. In this case, the program staff will make every effort to involve the parents, and possibly other persons (as appropriate), in order to decide on the best course of action for this child, prior to any termination.
14. SCHOOL PROGRAM AT A GLANCE
Parents may opt to enroll their child in the 2-day, 3-day or 5-day program.
Au Beau Séjour French Preschool provides breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack for extended care students'.
Homemade meals provided are nutritious, natural and organic (as often as possible). Healthy menus are posted weekly. How much your child has eaten is posted outside his/her classroom daily.

No prior French language is required.
Diapers accepted for 2 yr. olds, NO diapers at 3yrs old, except for nap times.
Program is open to children ages 2-5
15. ADJUSTMENT PERIOD FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILD/REN
You and your child will need a period of time to adjust to the new surroundings, teachers, and other children even if your child has previously attended child care. The staff will assist in the separation period. They are experienced with this situation and will be nurturing and caring. Feel free to call the Director when you arrive at your destination and ask how your child is doing. Chances are that your child will be busy playing and you can ease your mind and concentrate on your
tasks for the day. Depending on age and disposition a child might “act out”during this transition by doing some of the following:
• Cling to you and refuse to let go
• Have a tantrum
• Forget their toilet-training, bed-wetting
• Loss of appetite
• Revert back to an old comfort (pacifier, favorite toy, thumb sucking)
• Wake up during the night, have bad dreams
• Express a desire to stay home
Usually these problems are temporary. If your child is treated lovingly but firmly, these behaviors should dissipate. If you are enthusiastic, chances are your child will be too!
We ask parents limit the time to no more than 10 minutes to depart from the classrooms to minimize disruption of children’s daily class routine. Should you wish to speak to your child’s teacher at length we are happy to make an appointment for you or you can contact them via their school’s email address.
16. ITEMS NEEDED FOR THE FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL
• Blankets, sleeping items are stored in a manner which ensures that sleeping surfaces are not touching and need to be stored in cubbies. Roll up napsacks with incorporated pillows (50”L x 24”W) that children can roll themselves with velcro are ideal. ALL ITEMS LABELED PLEASE
• Large zip locks are ideal to store bedding for both size a hygiene reasons. Ziploc bags labeled with your child/ren’s name.
• A pillow
• Diapers with wipes (only for 2 years old children)
• Tissue box labeled with your child/ren’s name
• Sippy Cup labeled with your child/ren’s name
• Special blanket or comfort items if your child/ren is attached to one.
• Set of extra clothing (please remember clothes will get dirty, be practical!)
• Please label all items of your child such as his/her jacket.
• Hat and Sunscreen labeled with your child/ren’s name. Sunscreen should be applied my drop off person, and unscreen is to be given directly to teachers.
• ALL completed forms are to be provided, ready to file. It is mandatory that proof of vaccines be in by DAY 1 of school.
Please note that our School will not have your child/ren keep his/her toys. It is best that toys be left at home. Taking toys/items away from a child on site is very difficult for them.
17. CHILDREN APPROPRIATE CLOTHING
Students should dress in comfortable clothing so that they may feel free to play and enjoy. In spite of our best efforts to prevent it (and even though we use smocks for classroom art projects), you might find occasional paint on your child’s clothing as a reminder of his/her creative genius at work. Even so, we can’t absolutely guarantee that every color will come out easily. We ask that every child wear closed toe shoes so that they may be safe and able to participate out on the playground. We DO NOT want children to wear slip on shoes or sandals. Please be mindful of this policy. Weather appropriate clothes are also important. Please label ALL of clothing carefully.
We hope to have an open communication between the families and the Preschool. If you have a question or problem, please email/call us or come immediately to us. We will try to work with you to come to an understanding if either party is having a problem. Our door is always open and we welcome the opportunity to talk openly about anything. Any questions that you have for the concern of your child or Au Beau Séjour is always welcome. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s day please call, text, or email so we can talk. If you have issues, it is better not to discuss it in front of the children. Please call or email us so we can discuss it over the phone or we can try to schedule a meeting.
19. ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
Your child is going to miss you while you can’t be with him/her. This is a very normal reaction. All children respond differently. Some are hesitant while others cry. It is normal for your child to cry on arrival, especially for the first few weeks. Try not to get upset over their crying; it will stop within a few minutes after you leave. If your child does a significant amount of crying at drop-off time, please make your stay brief. It is harder on the child when you prolong your stay with too many hugs and kisses. A quick hug and kiss and let them know you will return is a great way to let them know you love them and yes, you will be back. Usually within 5 minutes after a parent leaves the children are all playing and happy.
If you are worried please give us a call and check on your child to make sure they are happy and content. In any case, if a child cries for more than 15 minutes straight, we will call you! That kind of reaction isn’t typically the norm (unless he/she has never been in a childcare setting before then they may cry a lot the first few days up to a week that they are here) and we will try to find out what is behind the crying. If we can’t console your child after an hour or so, you will be called to come and pick up your child.
Children tend to act up a bit at departure times. This is normal since they are excited to see parents, and upset about leaving their friends. Please try to make sure your child is not throwing toys, hitting other children, running in the school, etc. during drop off and pick up times. This is a time of testing to see if they can get away with breaking the rules because a parent is here. We will give you a few minutes to try and get your child to behave but if they continue to misbehave we will intervene and try to speak to your child in order to try to get them to listen and be nice, as we can’t have the children acting unruly nor can we take a chance on having another child get hurt.
20. EARLY OR LATE ARRIVAL OR DEPARTURE
If you are going to pick up your child earlier or later than usual please give us a call. Or you can let us know that morning or the night before if possible. Occasionally Before and/or after care fee and/or Late pick-up fee may be applicable.
21. PICK UP TIME
We cannot allow any child to leave with anyone except the person(s) on your child’s pick up authorization form, unless you tell us in the morning that someone else is going to be picking up your child (please add the full person’s name on your child’s pick up authorization form which is available in your child’s classroom. Ask it to your child’s teacher). In this case, we will need the full person name as well as the type of the person's relationship with your child. Please note that Au Beau Séjour staff will need to see the ID of the new authorized person prior to release your child to that person.
In the case that an “unauthorized” person comes for pick up, we will contact you directly. Please note that your verbal approval will not be sufficient to release your child to that person. Again, we CANNOT allow any child to leave with anyone except the person(s) on your child’s pick up authorization form.
Late fees will still apply if the child is picked up late.
If you have any concerns or questions about your child’s day please ask us when picking him up. If we are busy you can always give us a call or send an email. If it is something that shouldn’t be discussed in front of the children than please call so we can discuss it over the phone or set up a meeting.
22. PICK UP TIME: BE MINDFUL
Please be mindful, this is an important transition for all. ABS considers the adult picking up child responsible once arrived on site, and signed child out. When picking up your child please be mindful that not all students' have their parents, or caregivers present, and it may be difficult for them. Minimize the time you spend in the process of departing from the school. It is alright to wait while your child is finishing up a project or a teacher finishes reading a story, but then please leave the school campus. Speaking with your child’s teacher for a quick review of the day is well taken. Concerns, or questions are to be addressed at an appropriate time. The teachers are with our students', which remains are priority. A note, or an email sent out to the teacher to either set up a convenient time, or to answer a concern, or question is APM policy.
23. LATE PICK UP
For your child’s benefit, please be on time. A child is very sensitive. If you are late and he/she is the last one to be picked up, he/she will feel abandoned and forgotten, so it is imperative for you to be on time. Always allow extra time for traffic, so that you may arrive unstressed and safe when greeting your child(ren).
Overtime starts at 3:45pm (school day), 6:00 pm (full day with extended care).
ABS closes promptly at 6:00 pm each day. All children and parents must have exited the building by this time. Our ABS clock will serve as the “official clock” for determining time. Please synchronize your watch with this clock. If you have a daily lengthy departure you must arrive early enough to meet the time criteria. A No Exception Policy is in place for several reasons:
-Most preschooler’s internal body clock knows when their usual pick-up time is! Children can become nervous or fearful when they are at school later than normal. Please know that your child will always be comforted and safe, even in the event of an emergency.
-Teachers give their best to your children each day. They also have responsibilities to their own children and family. They need to know they can end their school day reliably at 6:00 daily.
- Our building is not insured after 6:00, licensing rules forbids children who are not signed out on the premises after 6:00PM.
Late fees will be assessed at $2.00 for every 1 minute late starting after that.
This fee must be paid to the teacher on duty with 48hrs of tardy. There will be no exceptions or warnings. If you are late for ANY reason, a charge will be issued. This No Exception Policy makes it easier for us to apply the late policy to everyone consistently and fairly.
If pick up becomes a big problem, termination of services may result. The provider is under no obligation to provide an extension of time if such extension conflicts with the provider's own plans and family. Late arrival does not justify late departure.
24. EXTENDED CARE DROP-IN-USE
Au Beau Séjour French Preschool is aware that some families may opt out for annual "Before and After Care" but may need it occasionally. "Before and After Care" service fees are $5.00 for each 15 minute increment. Please call Coralie as soon as you know your child will be in AM /PM Care so that we can communicate change to your child (ren) and teacher.
Unless we receive court papers stating that you have been granted temporary or permanent custody, we have no legal authority to tell either parent that he/she can’t pick up their child (unless of course you have court papers showing us
otherwise.) We will need a photocopy of the court order with the court’s signature. Please make sure we have these papers in your child’s file. And please make sure you tell us if there is someone that is not to pick up your child!
26. CONTINGENCY PLANS
Please have a back-up plan for unexpected situations, or a change in dismissal routine.
A successful school experience is the responsibility of the children, the parent, and the school. Your child's progress, both academically and socially, is influenced to a great extent by daily participation. Regular attendance without tardiness is the key.
Teachers plan their instructional time carefully. It is vital that classes start on time. Therefore, parents should leave their children in the classroom promptlyas class starts. If parents wish to deliver a message or discuss a concern with their
child’s teacher they can do so during the welcoming time or outside of class time. A message may be left in the office. Teachers will not be called out of class for messages except for emergencies.
Students are expected to be present every school day. When a child is to be absent or late, please call the school office.
Please report the reason for your child’s absence so we can make decisions about communicating with other parents regarding contagious illnesses. Students must be fever-free for 24 hours (without the aid of fever-reducing medication) before returning to school. Children who have vomited or had diarrhea should also stay home for 24 hours from the time of the incident.
Please make every effort to schedule appointments after school including those with doctors and dentists. Although there may be occasions when it is unavoidable, we feel strongly that students benefit from consistency and should fully participate in each school day. If a student must leave school early or arrive late due to a doctor's appointment or another compelling reason, please let us know ahead of time. Absences for religious holidays are excused.
Chronic lateness is disruptive to the other members of the community and detrimental to a child’s social and academic adjustment to the school day. The opportunity for socializing that begins each school day is an important part of the curriculum, proving important time for the children to experience the give-and-take of a classroom community and develop the friendships that enhance each student’s school experience. It is important that all children be picked up on time. Our staff members have responsibilities both before and after class sessions, so it is important that parents be mindful of dismissal times in order for our school day to go smoothly. It is also upsetting to your child when he or she is unexpectedly the last person in the class to be picked up. We open the door at 3:30 SHARP. PLEASE DO NOT RING BEFORE THIS TIME 3:30 (unless you have contacted us beforehand.)
Drop Off: Classroom doors will open promptly at 8:30am (arrival until 9am permitted).
Morning care: Doors will open promptly at 8:00 to 8:30am.
Please do not come earlier than 8:30 am if your child is enrolled for the 8:30 am- 3:30 pm school day
School Day Pick up: doors will open promptly at 3:30pm (arrival until 3:45pm accepted). Please do not come earlier than 8:30 am if your child is enrolled for the 8:30 am- 3:30 pm school day.
Afternoon Care: will start promptly at 3:45 pm till 6:00pm. School closes promptly at 6:00pm.
Late fees will be assessed at $2.00 for every 1 minute late starting at 6:01PM.

In compliance with licensing needs (CCLD) Au Beau Séjour French Preschool has replaced paper sign in-out sheets and we use an electronic Sign In-Out system with an iPad. This is very secure. Each authorized pickup has a PIN to check in-out their child. Make sure each designated pick-up person’s name is recorded on your emergency card in our school office. This standard school-wide policy is to safeguard the security of each student and there can be no exception. CDL will be asked for if we do not know the person. NO EXCEPTIONS. Please notify us promptly in advance of any changes so that we may let your child know.
32. PARENTS CODE OF CONDUCT

Making negative or disparaging comments regarding the school to staff, parents or anyone other than Administration (including outside of school)
Using contact information of ABS for commercial or any other improper purposes.
Not following policies designated to protect the safety and security of everyone at the school.
Any violation of this policy will result in the immediate withdrawal of the family.
Participate in the Center ́s special activities. Attend scheduled parent meetings and conferences.
Please ask questions and address concerns as they arise.
33. FEEDBACK / SUGGESTIONS / GRIEVANCES
Our staff welcomes comments and suggestions to improve the quality of care for your child. When areas of concern arise, parents should report the problem to the classroom teacher, who will hear your suggestion and/or grievance and attempt to work through the problem.
Parents are urged to be direct and candid with the teacher when they have concerns. If you feel you have been unable to resolve your concerns with the teacher or you are unable to deal with this person directly, contact the director / Owner.
Please do not hesitate to express any concern at any time. It is our goal to make sure your child’s experience at Au Beau Sejour is exceptional. We pride ourselves on having families who are happy and genuinely love being part of our school.
Parents can help their children by:
● Talking positively about school, teachers and children.
● Acknowledging and validating all feelings (I know that you are angry, sad, excited, etc.)
● Communicating a matter-of-fact confidence in ABS.
● Assuring your child that you love them, that you will miss them and that you will be back.
● Saying goodbye when you're ready to leave and then leaving. (It's confusing to children and teachers when parents say good-bye and then stay around for a while).
● Letting your child know when you are leaving. It is critical to your relationship that your child trusts that you will not sneak out to avoid upsetting him or her. It is much better for a child to experience momentary sadness than to have to deal with the possibility that a parent may disappear at any moment.
● While 3- and 4-year-olds still need plenty of parental help, Au Beau Sejour believes that children are typically enjoy independence. Expect more! We ask that parents be mindful, and that they hold their child’s hand. Please be mindful, and do not carry your child when dropping off. Raise the bar and your child will probably stretch to meet it.
34. CHILD ABUSE AND NEGLECT
The State of California requires that all members of a Preschool be on the lookout for, and report to the State, any and all cases of abuse to a child. We are therefore obligated to report to the State any suspected cases of child abuse and/or neglect.
No matter how much we watch and how careful we are, accidents can still happen occasionally.
Accidents on the school premises will be reported to the director immediately.
Any child involved in an accident that results in injury will have his/her injury assessed as to whether:
1. First aid from the staff is adequate
2. Parents need to be called if the child get a mark on her/his face
3. An emergency room visit is needed
Our staff members are certified in first aid and CPR. The staff member present and responsible for the child will fill out an accident report form whenever parents are called due to injury from an accident. This form will be kept on file in the office.
36. BITING AND AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR
If there is a biting incident, your child will get a warning. The second time he/she will be expelled from school. Please note that repeated physical aggression, hitting, kicking, shoving, bullying (including biting) is something that cannot, and will not, be tolerated at Au Beau Sejour. An incident report will be completed (and filed in the student’s school file) any time a student is physically aggressive towards another child or staff member. If necessary, the parent will be contacted to remove the child from school for the remainder of the day. If a child’s physical aggression is deemed a problem, we may have to consider expulsion of that child from the school. We feel that it is our obligation to provide a safe environment for all of our students and staff.
We hope that no child will be expelled from Au Beau Séjour French Preschool, however, should any bad behavior such as physical aggression, hitting, kicking, shoving, bullying (including biting) continue after Three warnings to the parents, the child will be expelled from the school.
38. AU BEAU SEJOUR STUDENT DISCIPLINE AND PROCEDURE POLICY
ABS Core Classroom Rules:
1. Respect yourself, others and our school.
2. Respect the learning environment
3. Respect rules and safety plans
4. Respect and take care of materials and equipment.
The primary goal of discipline at ABS is to provide and maintain a safe and just environment that promotes learning and positive personal growth. Disciplinary measures are aimed at assisting each student in the development of self-control, self-worth, social responsibility, and the acceptance of appropriate consequences for his/her actions. We value families as part of the team as we teach children to behave respectfully. Each teacher will post his or her individual classroom rules of conduct and remain responsible for teaching children these rules throughout the school year. Playground rules are familiar and practiced. Licensing forbids siblings/ children NOT enrolled in our program to play out on playground, or to wander from parents. Please be mindful, ABS enforces this rule for the safety of all. No exceptions will be allowed (stipulated in California Child Care Licensing rules and regulations)
If the child’s dysfunctional behavior poses a threat to himself or the emotional or physical safety of the other children, we reserve the right to terminate the care agreement on a timeline that is in the child’s and school’s best interest, which, under rare circumstances, may be immediately.
39. BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT / POSITIVE DISCIPLINE
At Au Beau Sejour only positive discipline is used as a means to discipline a student. Discipline defined is “to teach”. Positive Discipline is defined as a positive model used which focuses on the positive points of behavior, based on the idea that there are no bad children, just good and bad behaviors. We teach and reinforce the good behaviors while weaning the bad behaviors without hurting the child verbally or physically. Consistently and continuously use the 3 R’s. (remove, reflect and reconnect).
When you need to discipline, immediately remove child from the situation. The goal is to give him time to think about what he’s done, and at the same time give everyone time to calm down and get ready to talk about what just happened.
Then, when you feel like your child is ready and has a calm spirit, move onto the next “R,” Reflect.
When students' and educators reflect, what happened is discussed. Three questions are asked:
“What did they do wrong?”
Next, “Why was it wrong?”
Finally, “What can we do differently next time?” We want to shape his/her heart so they can be self-motivated to change their own behavior the next time. Here, we talk about the consequences. Consequences are always age appropriate, and just to the offense.
Before ending, we share with the student that we are here to help them, and that we believe in his/her ability to make the right decision the next time.
NO TIMEOUTS ARE GIVEN EVER. THOSE WORDS ARE NOT TO BE USED AT ABS.
40. POSITIVE DISCIPLINE TOOLS
- Good teaching skills are something that you have to continuously work at.
- Show patience and empathy
- Fully listen well when a child talks
- Helps the child feel safe
- A child is not “bad”. We explain to them that what they might have done The action was bad, NOT them.
- Consistency is Key
- Spend Time with Students. Time is accorded to check in with student as
Rules are to be reinforced on a consistent basis. All ABS teachers follow the same rules at all times as to remain consistent and to remain in accordance to our School’s procedures and policies. Many behaviors stem from a lack of attention, and partly the child is simply trying to get attention. If developing good skills is needed, there are many resources available to you. Ask us, we will provide lots of information that will help you develop skills that can be utilized on a daily basis.
Sick children will not be accepted into school. If a child was sent home on Wednesday because they were ill then they will not be able to return for 24 hours. So please do not bring your child back before Friday or they will not be permitted to stay. Under no circumstances will parents be allowed to bring a sick child into the school. Sick children need additional care that we cannot provide and should stay in their familiar environment. Additionally, we have to limit exposure of viruses to the other children as they and their families become exposed to those germs.
The following illness policies will be strictly enforced, for the health, well-being and safety of all concerned.
Examples of associated symptoms include, but are not limited to:
• Fever of 100 degrees or more: We do not allow the child to return to school until he/she has been free of fever for 24 hours
• Vomiting/Diarrhea: When occurs, keep your child home until he/she can keep food down for 24 hours. Runny or watery stools or 2 or more looser stools within last 4 hours.
• Chickenpox: Child may return 6 days after all the blisters are scabbed over.
• Pink eye: If the eye discharge is thick and white or yellow, the child should stay home until the discharge has stopped.
• Impetigo: Child may return 24 hours after the start of antibiotic medication. Please include a physician’s permission to return to class.
• Strep throat: Child may return 24 hours after antibiotics are started-please send a physician’s permission to return to class.
• Common cold: Keep child home until feverless for 24 hours. Your child may return to school with a slightly runny nose and cough. However, a child with a “heavy” cold and a hacking cough belongs at home, even though there is no fever.
• Flu: Child should stay home as long as symptoms are acute and fever is above 100 degrees (child should be fever-free for 24 hours).
• Headache: A child whose only complaint is headache usually does not need be kept at home. However, when a bad headache follows a fall or a blow to the head, your doctor should be contacted.
• Rash: Do not send a child with a rash to school until your doctor has said that it is safe to do so. Please send a note from the doctor indicating the child is not contagious.
• Sore throat: If your child complains of a sore throat and has no other symptoms, he/she may go to school. If white spots and/or red throat and swollen glands can be seen in the back of the throat or if fever is present, keep the child home and call your doctor.
When children become ill at school, the parents will be contacted and asked to pick up their child. If the parents are not available, the emergency contact will be called. It is vital that the emergency contact be a person who is able to come as soon as possible.
Parents of a child with a diagnosed contagious condition (measles, head lice, pink eye, mumps, chicken pox, etc.) are asked to notify the Director as soon as possible so that we may alert parents to watch for symptoms in their own children.
42. HEAD LICE
Head lice are unfortunately a recurring problem in schools. When a case is discovered at school, all families will be notified and provided with health department guidelines on treatment.
43.ALLERGIES AND SPECIAL DIET
We provide careful individual attention to the needs of children with recognized food allergies or specific dietary restrictions. At the beginning of every school year, we compile a school-wide allergy and special diet list. If your child falls into this category, be sure to sign this list every September so that every teacher who comes in contact with your child will be informed of your child’s special needs.
If your child’s dietary needs change during the course of the school year, remember to keep your teachers up to date by letting them know right away. Your child’s health is very important to all of us.
We want to always uphold good health practices. We want you to know that we understand that children will get sick and sometimes the decision to keep them home is a hard, but necessary one. However, it is mandatory that you keep your child at home if she/he experiences any of the following conditions or symptoms.
FOOD ALLERGIES: ALWAYS ALERT THE ADMINISTRATION AND YOUR CHILD’S TEACHER IF YOUR CHILD GETS A NEW ALLERGY. ALLERGIES AND PROCEDURES ARE POSTED THROUGHOUT THE BUILDING.
Allergies: Several students' have severe allergies. People with severe nut and dairy allergies have life-threatening reactions to ingesting even trace amounts of nuts and dairy products. Therefore, no nuts or nut products may be brought TO our School. Daily nut-free snacks are provided for all students. Parents of children in class with a student with allergies will receive more information at the beginning of the school year about additional accommodations for specific classrooms, including for birthdays and special snacks.
If your child requires administration of prescription or non-prescription medication during the school day, you must give a signed consent form with instructions to your teacher first. Forms are in your classroom.
Prescription medication must be brought in the original container with the label stating the physician’s instructions. Prescription medication will only be administered in accordance with the label directions as prescribed by the child’s physician. The instructions from the child’s representative cannot conflict with the label directions or the medication will not be administered.
Non-prescription medications may be administered without approval or instructions from the child’s physician only if the child’s parent provides in writing, approval and instructions for administration of the medicine and medication is administered in accordance with the product label. The instructions from the child’s parent may not conflict with the product label directions or the medication will not be administered.
All medication will be stored in the medical lock box. Please hand it directly to your child’s teacher with the consent form. Parents need to bring only the prescribed dosage that is needed, in the prescription container. Do not place any medication in your child’s lunchbox or cubby. Your teacher will note the time(s) medication was administered on your Daily Sign-in Sheet. Be sure to check for this verification when you pick up your child.
California and State Law requires that all children be immunized against various childhood diseases. Immunization forms are updated every fall and are checked yearly by the State Health Department. Failure to have necessary immunizations will result in exclusion from school.
Parents are asked to bring diapers, wipes and tissue when needed (please check the parents board daily). The teachers will remind you regularly to bring enough diapers to cover your child’s need. Our teaching staff is ready to help you and your child when the time is right. Au Beau Séjour’s toilet training policy is that when your child shows signs of readiness or interest at home, our teachers will work to reinforce and encourage toilet training here at school. Please let your teachers know if your child appears to be ready, based on at-home behavior. Working together with your teachers, a consistent and successful plan for your child can be developed. The children will be encouraged to wipe themselves independently, but will be assisted by a teacher, if needed. The job is made easier if, during the training period, your child wears simple pants or dresses without straps or any unnecessary complications.
Supporting Potty Training in TPS class:
We ask that children are potty trained by 3 years of age. Teachers are to communicate at least 2 months in advance to parents. As teachers, our job is not to potty train our students, but our job is to support our students where they are at in their development. That means supporting them if they are learning letters, supporting them if they are learning about friendships, and as they potty train. No teacher is to express anger about students having accidents or at parents who aren’t doing their “job” by potty training their two-year-old. That’s not OK. Our job as teachers and caregivers is to support every student’s development, not just the parts that aren’t stinky.
Here are some things to remember as you help support potty training at preschool:
1- Every child has a unique experience some potty train very early, and some are just not ready.
2- Check in with parents often. Ask at the start of the year what stage of potty training their child is and how they handle potty training at home.
3- Communicate to parents about any signs that the child is ready to potty train. Such as being interested when classmates use the bathroom, talking about wanting big boy undies, and general curiosity about the process. Supporting the child also means making sure that parents aren’t missing the signs of a child who is ready.
4- Be patient and express this to the parents. Parents feel incredible pressure to have their toddlers and preschoolers potty trained and that stress trickles down to the child. Help relieve that stress by being patient and positive. Your students will have their own timeline. Rushing a child who is not ready is not helpful.
5- Have picture books about potty training in your classroom for children to read with you or look through alone.
6- Expect accidents and don’t make a big fuss about them. Be positive. When you hand the parent the wet clothes in a bag, make sure you are stressing that it’s no big deal, the child is watching and listening to this exchange.
7- Have extra clothes on hand. If a child has just transitioned to underwear make sure you have multiple changes of clothes.
8- Ask children often if they would like to use the potty but never pressure them. Most toddlers will go to the bathroom about every 2 hours; preschoolers can usually stretch that out a little more.
9- Never force a child onto a toilet. Ever. Even if you know, the child in the corner is pooping do not force them into the bathroom. Instead encourage them to walk to the bathroom, help them clean up and wash hands. While cleaning up, example:” Next time when you need to poop you can come in here. Even if you aren’t ready to sit on the potty you can stand in here to go poop. Then when you are ready you can try the toilet.” No judgment just encouragement and support to get to the next stage.
10- Allow children to go to the bathroom with a potty trained friend (and a teacher of course) to see how this potty thing works.
11- Give them time to sit on the toilet even after they have peed, don’t hurry the child.
12- Allow parents to take the child to the bathroom at drop off and pick up. This helps children get more comfortable with your classroom bathroom.
13- We Praise all efforts, not just successes. EX: “____sat on the potty today, nothing happened but she is getting comfy with our class toilet. I was very proud of her for trying.” It’s that easy!
When it comes to being supportive of a child’s development the most important thing is to look at each child as an individual. When we do that as teachers, we truly provide a developmentally appropriate experience for our students.
2 months before the child’s 3rd Birthday Teachers will meet with parents to discuss the best needs for their child in regard to potty training.
Diaper Policy in PS Class:
In PS, a 3-year old is to be toilet trained, and no diapers, or pull ups are accepted. We allow nap diapers until the child has slept through nap for one full month without an accident. Our experience is that your child will be very proud, as we cheer them on! We are here to help through this sometimes stressful transition. Teachers will accompany your child to the bathroom, and will assist him/her with cleanliness when necessary. However, as the school year continues, your child will be encouraged to be more independent in their bathroom visits. If he/she is not ready yet we will set up a meeting with parents. We will have the child stay home until they are free of repeated accidents. If a 3 -year old child is taken out of class for 2 weeks due to our policy, the child must be accident free for two full weeks before return to class. This is an absolute non-negotiable policy.
49. NAPS & REST TIME
All students' (TPS, PS, MS and GS) will nap or rest after lunch. TPS children will nap for 2 hrs, PS will nap for 1.5 hrs and our MS and GS students will sleep for 1hr, or rest for 30 minutes.
ABS parents will provide the school with an all-in-one nap pack (pillow, comforter and blanket) for their child/ren and Au Beau Sejour Preschool will provides a mat per student to take their naps on. The design of the nap pack is very practical, the perfect size for our cubbies and it is child friendly. We kindly ask that you put your child's name on the nap pack, and every two weeks, we will ask you to take it home to be washed.
50. STUDENT BIRTHDAYS AND CELEBRATIONS
Birthday and party invitations may not be handed out at school or distributed in the classroom unless the entire class is invited. A good way for parents to include the entire class in the celebration is to provide a treat before afternoon dismissal (3:10PM). Please coordinate classroom birthday celebrations with the teacher and be considerate of special requests by the teacher to accommodate their needs or student needs (for example, not bringing certain messy treats or foods that could cause severe allergic reactions). Flowers, balloons, gifts and party favors are not allowed. Please try and bring nutritious treats for the children and /or limit the size and depth of icing of a sweet treat.
Please DO NOT bring toys. Leave them in the car, it is more upsetting to take them away once in the classroom.
If your child has a favorite nappy time toy, please bring it and teachers will have it for them at nap time. We are not responsible for any loss or breakage of personal items. Any articles of clothing, toys or other items should be labeled with your child’s name.
52. PHOTOGRAPHS / SOCIAL MEDIA
Photographs are taken of the children for use in the classrooms, newsletters, Facebook Page, Shutterfly share site and documentation purposes. We may also use a photograph in an email to another parent to show them their child’s activities or reassure them that all is well with their child during transitions. Your child may be in those photographs. The parents of any child receiving an email with the picture of any other child are strictly forbidden to show or use the photograph with anyone other than their spouse and family. They may never be circulated. This is for the protection of the children.
We will provide a form for you to indicate whether or not we may use your child’s photograph in photo flyer, outside newsletters, our web site, and other promotional material. Your child’s name will never be used. While we appreciate the opportunity to use your child’s picture to share the school with prospective parents, we respect your wishes whatever your decisions are.
53. EMERGENCY DRILLS
We are ready and we take the idea of fires and earthquakes very seriously! ABS practice monthly fire and earthquake drills so that our students are familiar what to do and how to respond in an emergency situation. We also conduct school wide evacuation drill twice a year.
In the event of fire, we will evacuate the property immediately and will head to the designated shelter (Hoover Elementary School). In case of a fire we will have our emergency packet with us (which includes a parent list of names and contact numbers). You will be alerted as soon as we arrive at the shelter.
54. GENERAL EMERGENCY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
In the case of an emergency, the Director and teachers will take appropriate action depending on the circumstances. In the case of an emergency or disaster that allows us to remain at the school, we will remain in the safest portion of the site. We have emergency supplies for 3 days for children and adults. We will remain with your children past the mandatory three-day period. We will remain with them until they are picked up by an authorized person or a city, state, county, or federal official makes appropriate arrangements for their care if an authorized person cannot be located after extensive efforts.
In case of disaster (earthquake, fire, toxic conditions, etc.…) and the school is deemed unsafe, we will evacuate the premises to an emergency location. A notice will be placed on the gate, if possible, indicating our location.
