Positive Behavior Support (PBS)
As an approach to recognize positive behavior and reduce or eliminate challenging behaviors, Rogy’s implements a program to enhance social and emotional development and promote school readiness. The approach was developed by Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning or CSEFEL and uses a pyramid model to address the social and emotional needs of children.
We at Rogy’s like to refer to this approach as PBS. PBS focuses on being proactive in preventing challenging behaviors by building positive relationships with our children and families, creating a supportive environment for our children, and finally, using specific strategies in teaching social and emotional development. With PBS in place, the amount of time addressing challenging behaviors has been reduced and in turn has allowed our staff to focus on the positive behaviors and to support all areas of development and learning in all children.

We work really hard to teach PBS strategies to our children and love the results that we get! It is an amazing program to help the children really blossom emotionally and learn to deal with different emotions and different situations. It also helps the teachers to focus one on one with children, especially during their difficult times. We want the children to learn through every experience to ensure that they are constantly growing.
We want to focus on the positive as much as possible, so our teachers work hard to constantly develop different strategies to reassure the children that they are doing the right thing. With PBS, the children always want to be caught being good. Our wonderful teachers love to reinforce positive behavior, so they pick a child, who has really shown growth emotionally, and name them the Star of the Month. Each child in the classroom gets an opportunity to show off their family, friends, likes, hobbies, and more.
We also want to ensure we’re meeting the emotional needs of each child. We have a “Thought Spot” in our classrooms which provides them a space to relax when they need a moment to themselves. We always offer posters, books, activities, comfy rugs and pillows to help the children understand their feelings and learn to control different types of emotions. Our teachers also find it helpful to have some Super Heroes and other popular characters around to be reminders to the children throughout their day as to what the classroom rules and expectations are. Our ultimate goal is to help the children grow and to learn!
