BEHAVIORAL Expectations

A socially appropriate standard of behavior is expected from every participant.

  1. During structured teaching time, we expect that each individual will be able to take direction, stay on task, and respect the guidance of all staff and teachers.

  2. During playground time, breaks (snack or bathroom), before or after care, we expect each individual to respect the rules of the facility as well as the rules Afterschool Art and More.

  3. All rules are safety oriented. Please contact Kim Murdock if you would like a detailed list of Christ Church Playground safety rules. 

  4. In all situations, at all times, campers must refrain from physical aggression or verbal bullying. It will not be tolerated.

Behavior that does not meet these basic standards will be brought to the attention of the parent and may result in dismissal with no credit, refund or make up day at the sole discretion of the teachers, if unacceptable behavior continues. Our programs are therapeutic in nature but we are by no means certified to address behaviors or conditions (diagnosed or un-diagnosed) that preclude a positive outcome.
