24 c) locking the exists of the child care centre or home child care premises for the purpose of confining the child, or confining the child in an area or room without adult supervision, unless such confinement occurs during an emergency and is required as part of the licensee's emergency management policies and procedures; d) use of harsh or degrading measures or threats or use of derogatory language directed at or used in the presence of a child that would humiliate, shame or frighten the child or undermine his or her self-respect, dignity or self-worth; e) depriving the child of basic needs including food, drink, shelter, sleep, toilet use, clothing or bedding; or f) inflicting any bodily harm on children including making children eat or drink against their will. Research from diverse fields of study shows that children who attend programs where they experience warm, supportive relationships are happier, less anxious and more motivated to learn than those who do not. Experiencing positive relationships in early childhood also has significant long-term impacts on physical and mental health, and success in school and beyond. (HDLH) Behavior Management 1. Educators will refer to the Program Statement and documents "How Does Learning Happen?" and "Think Feel Act" on positive approaches in helping children to self- regulate, build positive relationships with each other, educators, families, the community and the environment. 2. Educators will consult with the parents, for they are the expert of their children on their development and well being. 3. Educators will abide by the College of ECE Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. 4. Should further support be needed, Educators will consult with community partners to best meet the needs of the child. A meeting will then be scheduled that will include the parent, educator, Site Lead and all community partners needed to develop an Individual support plan. Waiting List Policy Jubilee Heritage Family Resources provides care to families in each of our childcare centers and our Home Childcare program. The selection of children for admission to JHFR is administered in accordance with our Waiting List Policy. The purpose of the Waiting List Policy is to ensure a fair process is followed and communicated to all involved. Each family requesting care will place themselves on the Childcare Registry via link: The family will place their child on their selected Childcare Centre waitlist. Jubilee does not charge the family or collect a fee or deposit for the placement of a child on the waiting list for admission in our childcare centre or Home Childcare Program. Jubilee will offer families a space in our program based on the Childcare Registry and the program availability. When a space is available, we will contact you by phone or e-mail. Phone call or email notification must be returned within 3 business days. Should we not receive a reply or if you decline a space in our program, we will remove your application from the waitlist and contact the next family. If the offered space does not meet your preferred start date, you will be required to update your application’s preferred start date on the Childcare Registry, within 3 business days. Families who have been removed from the Childcare Registry will receive notification from the City of Greater Sudbury that they have been removed from the waitlist. Parents who accept a space offered to them shall be liable for all payments from their first day of attendance or the date that was agreed upon by both Lead and family.
