Rest time

Children attending school for 4 hours or more are required by EEC to sleep, rest, or engage in a quiet activity as appropriate to their needs. Please be respectful of the rest times of neighboring classrooms.


Parents must bring the following supplies labeled with their child’s name or initials:

Rest time routines

Infants and safe sleep policy

A baby is most at risk of SIDS between the ages of 2-4 months and during the first few weeks of a new childcare arrangement. Children younger than 6 months at the time of enrollment must be always under additional direct visual supervision, including while napping, during the first 6 weeks they are in our care.

Toddlers and Preschoolers

Rest time occurs after lunch until about 2:30 p.m. Dim the lights, play restful music, and assist children as necessary to get to sleep. Children need less daytime sleep as they grow, so younger children may sleep for 2 or more hours during rest time, while older children may wake sooner or not nap at all.
