PLAY IS THE WAY® GPS

(Growing Personally & Socially)

GPS offers direction in a time of need.  It is a carefully constructed, powerful form of “circle time” that addresses issues of classroom and schoolyard behaviour in a safe and meaningful way while improving the personal and social capabilities of students and the facilitator.

A GPS Conference does not exclude children from the circle. The circle is their community and their membership of that community is unbreakable. The message here is that your community will be here for you when you need them the most. You belong, and if your behaviour makes the relationship with your community difficult they will, to a person, help and support you to make things better.

A GPS Conference does not vote children out of the circle and force them to satisfy the needs of the class before they are allowed back in. We want children to know their community is there for them even in the worst of times, in the belief that an unshakeable and proven trust in that knowledge, is for so many children, the first step towards considerate, appropriate, responsible and respectful behaviour.
