Naptime is an important part of the young child’s day. After a relaxed, healthy lunch, the children their out their blanket and pillow on comfortable mat. They curl up warm and cozy and drift off to sleep, awakening on their own fully rested and ready for the rest of their day.
Most children under five take a nap. Though children cycle throughout the year napping and not napping, it is important to offer this time to them. We never force them to sleep. If they are in a stage where they stay awake on their own, they have a short rest time then get up and have a wonderful afternoon.
