Infants rest on an individual basis. They sleep in cribs without any blankets to ensure safe sleep. A fan is always on in the sleep area and teachers monitor the sleep area every 10 minutes. All of our infant staff have received safe sleep training and our building has adopted a safe sleep policy.
Toddler rest time is scheduled after lunch from 12:00-3:00. Every child has their own individual cot/mat with a blanket from home to nap with. When children wake up they are given a quiet activity.
Preschool rest time is scheduled from 1:00-3:00. Children are encouraged to relax on their mats for at least 30 minutes. If they do not fall asleep then a quiet activity like coloring, books or puzzles is provided.
During rest times soft music is played and lights are turned down low. Children backs are rubbed or patted upon request and mats/cots are spaced 2-3 feet apart from one another pending on classroom requirements. Reading books and audio stories are often used for transition to rest time. Every classroom is equipped with a quiet area where children can go anytime during the day to take a break.
