Magic Cottage provides a safe environment. Discipline is handled constructively, stressing the consequences of children's own actions and showing children choices.
We believe children should learn values and strategies that enable them to problem solve in difficult situations.
We DO NOT use time out chairs or single out any child. Rather, we believe positive reinforcement is the best approach.
We reward responsibility and communication, and to show children how the benefits of approaching a problem in a positive way. We tell the children, "using our words is always better."
"I chose the Magic Cottage because the staff and administration have been 100% supportive of my four-year-old son. He has always had little behavior issues, but the staff at the Magic Cottage understands his needs and his energy level, and has essentially eliminated any problems. Kudos to them. "
