Croft rules

We have some rules at the Croft to keep everyone safe and to help them make the most out of their stay.


  1. Listen to each other
  2. Be kind (speak nicely)
  3. Share with each other
  4. Be gentle (don't hurt people)
  5. Take turns
  6. Keep your hands and feet to yourself
  7. Be in the right place at the right time
  8. Have fun!


  1. Swear
  2. Call names
  3. Use rude words or gestures (eg, hand signs)
  4. Tease
  5. Run away from the unit
  6. Damage things

When children fail to follow these rules we take various actions. You will first be given a warning to stop what you are doing. If you have still not stopped after a count of three, the staff may take time off your play time or you may not get treats such as stickers. At times staff may ask you to leave the room. If you are unwilling or unable to do this, staff may have to take you to somewhere safe where you cannot hurt yourself or others.

Anger rules
We would like you to think about the following anger rules.

It's ok to feel angry but:

  1. Don’t hurt others
  2. Don’t hurt yourself
  3. Don’t hurt property
  4. Do talk about it

When children follow the rules they may be rewarded with treats such as stickers, free choices and special time. Following the rules helps make everyone at The Croft feel safe and happy.
