Any child under the age of four that is with us for the day is required to rest by the CCEYA guidelines. Depending on the age of the child, they are expected to rest quietly or engage in quiet activities so that children that need to sleep are able to. All children are provided with a designated cot. We ask all parents to supply a favorite blanket, pillow (if necessary) and a favorite rest time item (eg. small stuffy-please limit to one). Parents are asked to bring items home at the end of the week to wash and replenish for the following week.
Rest time is no longer than two hours per day. All children under the age of four are required by the Child Care Early Years Act to rest on their cot for one hour per day, engage in a quiet activity for 1 hour if unable to sleep. Infants are an exception to the above rule, and staff will follow the routine as closely as possible as outlined by the parents of the child.
