From time to time children go through phases of development that may require temporary additional support. Unlike the industry standard, it is our belief that children who go through a challenging phase should be supported rather than expelled. Paradigm believes in a philosophy of scaffolding, which is a support system for children and families going through a temporary challenge.
At Paradigm we have a program in place to support a tricky stage in development for your child called “Shadowing”. A shadow is a teacher who will dedicate one on one attention to assist your child in overcoming an identified challenge. Your child will be shadowed for a period of three or more weeks. At the end of three weeks Teachers and Directors will reevaluate your child’s development. If we feel your child has made enough progress, a trial week will occur to reintroduce your child back into the mainstream. An additional three-week period may or may not be required.
It is our goal to support our children and their families through all stages of development.
