Biting is a natural developmental stage that many children go through. It is usually a temporary stage that commonly occurs in young children.
The safety of the children at Nishkam Nursery is our primary concern. The Nursery’s biting policy addresses the actions the staff will take if a biting incident occurs.
Children bite other children for many different reasons. A child might be teething or overly tired and frustrated. He or she might be experimenting or trying to get the attention of the carer or their peers. Young children have limited verbal skills and are impulsive without a lot of self-control. Sometimes biting occurs for no apparent reason. Nishkam Nursery will discourage the children bite if they become angry or frustrated. The staff members will maintain a close and constant supervision of the children at all times.
