Promoting Positive Behaviour

At Croftamie Nursery we believe everyone has a right to a calm, safe, supportive and purposeful environment where each individual is valued, respected and supported to achieve their full potential.

To ensure that our philosophy is embedded in our practice, we have developed an in-house behaviour management policy that reflects the agreed values and principles of Stirling Council, as well as of parents, staff and children currently involved within Croftamie Nursery.

Nursery Values
  • Kindness.
  • Love.
  • Outdoors.
  • Uniqueness and Inclusion.
  • Fun and Enjoyment.

Like in all aspects of life, conflict can arise at nursery.  Common sources of conflict are disputes over space, resources, or social disagreements about how to play or which friends to include.

Our positive behaviour policy details six problem-solving steps that staff implement, when helping children resolve conflicts

  • Approach calmly, stopping any hurtful actions or language
  • Acknowledge feelings
  • Gather information
  • Restate the problem
  • Ask for ideas for solutions and choose one together
  • Give follow-up support as needed

Democratic decision-making processes are more time-consuming and can be frustrating and difficult to maintain at times, but the long-term benefits will be the creation of an environment in which children have the optimum opportunity to gain in both confidence and the capacity to participate in society as socially responsible individuals.
