Sleep / Quiet / Rest Time

Re-charging the batteries

Rest time is between 12.30 and 2.00*. Children are encouraged to rest on their beds for the first 20 - 40 minutes (depending on individual needs) listening to story tapes, relaxation music or reading books.

No child is ever forced to sleep nor are they forced to stay awake. You will be informed if they do by means of the sign in sheet. If you do not wish for your child to sleep, every endeavour will be made to keep them awake. Should they fall asleep, they will be left to rest for no longer than 45 minutes.
