Our Guidelines

Walnut Hill wants to ensure a safe and loving environment for your child.  We want your child to have a creative, well-structured learning environment where the Golden Rule is always observed.

Please view Walnut Hill's guidelines concerning discipline, playground rules, health guidelines, lunch and snacks, and personal belongings.


A child having difficulty with behavior is:

  1. Redirected to an appropriate activity.
  2. Redirected a second time.
  3. Encouraged to discuss feelings concerning behavior.
  4. Removed from the situation.

An apology is necessary if a child bites, kicks, scratches, etc. The teacher will explain why the behavior is unacceptable and why we do not hurt our friends. If the behavior continues, the parents will be notified.
