REST AND SLEEP TIMES

We provide the opportunity for children to have a rest or to have some quiet time inside each day. Please talk to your child’s group teacher if you would like your child to be included in this routine. At this time of the day, other children participate in quiet activities either in the cool shade of the sand pit, the verandah area or indoors reading books.

Parents and carers are to provide sheets and launder them each week. A flat cot sheet marked clearly with child’s name is recommended to cover mattress fully. Please send this along in a pillow case (used as a carry bag only). If your child requires a cuddly toy, dummy or special sheet/blanket for sleep time please send along (labelled).
