St. Paul was recently voted the #1 Childcare in St. Joseph by the St. Joseph News Press in 2016 and was also given this recognition in 2015.
At St. Paul, security and the safety of our kids is one of our top priorities. St. Paul has recently updated both our security system and our security policies regarding the facilities. There are cameras throughout our facility both inside and outside.
St. Paul follows the State recommended ratio guidelines:
Our staff is hired for their excellence of character and their ability to work with our students. Our staff and aides are background checked to ensure our children’s’ safety. They are also CPR and first aid certified.
In addition they are trained in how to supervise their classrooms and in how to handle blood borne pathogens
Our staff also goes through ministry safe training (abuse and neglect training)
Our discipline policy is “The 2 T’s” Talking–>Redirection & Timeout
First we talk to our children and help them to learn and recognize inappropriate behaviors. Then the staff tries to redirect the child’s energy in a positive direction. Timeout is a last resort, not a first reaction to inappropriate behavior.
Timeout policy – for the first and second offense the timeout is served in the classroom. On the third offense the child is brought to the Childcare Director and issues are dealt with there.
