Positive Behavior Support (PBS)
An approach to identify positive behavior, and minimize or remove challenging behaviors, Rogy’s Learning Center, Big Hollow uses a program that enhances social and emotional development, and promotes elementary school readiness.
The approach, first developed by the Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) utilizes a pyramid model confront the emotional and social needs of children.
At Rogy’s Learning Center, our PBS approach focuses on teachers being proactive to prevent challenging behaviors. We accomplish this task by developing positive relationships with our children and their families, to create a supportive environment, and to use particular strategies to teach both social and emotional development.
The best part: with PBS in place, the amount of time our staff members use to address challenging behaviors is dramatically reduced, helping them to focus more on positive behaviors in children.
