What is Geneva's Sick Policy?
Children who have been sick may not return to Geneva until they have been symptom free for over 24 hours without any medication, especially after bouts of diarrhea and vomiting.
How does Geneva accomodate allergies and diet preferences?
Geneva respects allergies and dietary preferences of individual students as notified by parents. We are a "peanut free School" which means that no peanuts or peanut products are used or permitted in the School. We request that families respect this policy.
What is the behavior management or discipline policy?
We realize that not all children are mature in their social-emotional skills. Instaed, we realize that there will be many opportunities to teach sharing, cooperation, manners. Staff members use various techniques for teaching these skills, including distraction, redirection, modeling, giving choices, reading and role-playing situations, coaching, among others. Sometimes a child chooses to retreat to a quiet, cozy corner to collect emotions before feeling comfortable to return to a group or play situation.
Must my child be toilet-trained?
When children first begin their education at Geneva, they do not have to be toilet-trained. We realize that it is not developmentally appropriate for typical young students to have fully mastered this skill until they are 3-3.5 years of age.
What is the difference between Geneva and Montessori?
A Purist Montessori program encourages children to select and explore independently activities of interest so as to acquire academic skills. This approach does not emphasize group learning or instruction in the arts.
What are the six developmental growth areas for young children?
Gross, fine and perceptual motor skills
