Conscious Discipline and The Baby Doll Circle Time


Students at Gosch learn about self-regulation.  Conscious Discipline helps us to teach the students to get ready to problem solve by intentionally teaching the students to identify their emotions and learn how to deal with them.  Intense feelings such as anger, frustration, anxiety and fear may be something that your child encounters when beginning school.  Our staff utilize strategies from Dr. Becky Bailey to support our students as they learn to manage their emotions. 

New to Carrie Gosch ELC this school year is The Baby Doll Circle Time.  The circle time is designed to teach students empathy. Specifically,  The Baby Doll Circle Time incorporates skills such as attention, self-regulation, impulse control and initiative.  Learning these skills help students develop positive relationships with others and supports academic learning.   The circle time is facilitated through engaging social activities, such as singing and rhyming and is presented as play to the students.  There is also a connection from home to school that is created during this activity.   

If you would like to learn more about Conscious Discipline or the Baby Doll Circle, let your child's teacher know.  Your child's teacher will provide printed information.  If we have enough interested parties, we will host an informational session at Gosch in the Parent Cafe.
