1 Nursery   staff will model appropriate behaviour when they interact with children and   members of staff.  They are responsible   for establishing a caring, well-organised learning and teaching environment.  Children’s efforts and achievements will be   praised so that each child feels included and valued.
2 Children   starting nursery will be given individual support to help them become secure   and confident.  Staff will also be   pro-active in supporting children who have additional needs and those who are   coping with difficulties at home.
 3 Puppets and   stories will be used to encourage brief, informal discussions about   appropriate behaviour in a variety of situations.
4 When a   child has difficulty managing his/her behaviour, a member of staff will take   the child aside and speak calmly to them about what has happened and how   things can be made better.Children will be encouraged to respect and appreciate   each other and staff will seek to enable children to express their feelings   and concerns.
5 Nursery   staff will work with parents/carers to support children who need help from   time to time to manage their behaviour.    Advice will be sought from the Head Teacher who will meet with   parents/carers if necessary.
