Our Educational Philosophy
Indy Learning Center provides a nurturing, loving, educational environment in a residential
setting. We maintain a positive atmosphere while engaging students in a variety of age-appropriate activities designed to
stimulate learning. We strive to instill Christian morals and values as we show students how to interact appropriately in
a small group setting with other children and adults.
practice positive redirection as a way to teach the children to behave appropriately. If a child physically hurts another
child (biting, hitting, pushing, etc.) he/she may be asked to sit in “time-out” for a short period of time (one
minute per year in age) to remove him/her from the situation. Under no circumstance will we ridicule, embarrass or use any
type of physical punishment with a child. In extreme cases where behaviors repeatedly threaten the safety of other children
or the operation of our program we reserve the right to remove the child from our program.
