Our policies strictly adhere to those set fourth by the Arizona Dept of Health Services.  The purpose of discipline is to help children learn acceptable behavior and to develop self- control.  Three Points strives to be consistent and use discipline that promotes self-esteem.  Positive guidance, redirection and time out are used when the need arises.

When a child is placed in time out, the time out periods will not be longer than two to three minutes after the child regains control.

Discipline will not be associated with eating, napping or toileting.

Children will not be allowed to discipline other children.
