Please note: The staff of Moultrie Montessori School seeks to resolve discipline problems through Nonviolent Communication and meeting the needs of all concerned. A child may be asked to remove him/herself from the group until an adult is able to talk with him/her about a problem. If a child’s behavior causes concern for the safety of either himself or anyone else, parents will be called to pick up their child immediately. Teachers may request conferences with parents if there are recurring problems or concerns.
