At Educara, we recognize the requirement for children to have rest and quiet activity time. Depending on the child’s needs, we provide time each day that encourages a mid-day nap, rest, or engagement in quiet activities, depending on the child’s needs.
At the rest/nap times cots and sheets are provided for each child and are set out in rows in the classroom. Each child brings with them a blanket and any other required items for napping or rest, such as a stuffy, soother, or pillow.
During the toddler’s nap staff will do a visual check of each child in intervals of 30 minutes, to check for any signs of distress, changes in breathing, or anything else noticed and record their observations on the daily sleep check.
Rest periods do not exceed two hours in length daily.
