The Colonial Early Education Program at The Colwyck Center embraces Conscious Discipline and is committed to using this approach in our classrooms. 

 

Conscious Discipline

 

“Equips educators to integrate social-emotional learning, discipline and self-regulation so they spend less time policing behavior and more time teaching vital life skills.”

“Conscious Discipline is a proven, comprehensive approach that empowers users with skills that create a safe, connected, problem-solving environment for families.”

Information about Safekeeper Rituals:

“The brain functions optimally when a person feels safe. The basic job description for a teacher in a Conscious Discipline classroom is ‘My job is to keep the class safe.’ The children’s job is “’o help keep the class safe.’ The principal is the Safekeeper of the school.”

“Safekeeper Rituals look different in different classrooms. One of the most common Safekeeper rituals involves each child selecting or creating an item that represents him or herself (a cutout, a photo glued to a popsicle stick, a small toy, etc.). Each morning the teacher states the Safekeeper job description and asks the children to commit to keeping the class safe by putting their item in a decorated Safekeeper box.”
