Sleep Time

Sleep and rest times are another daily routine for the children at our Centre.

Please discuss your child’s current sleep patterns with their caregiver.


Children are encouraged to rest from about 11.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. Some younger children will need to sleep, others will read, play quiet games and construct puzzles. Parent wishes about their child’s sleeping pattern will be adhered to as far as possible. Remember, however, that in group care there are many distractions and children’s sleep patterns may be different. At no time will a child in this Centre be forced to take a sleep. Babies’ sleeps are according to need and routine. Centre staff will consider such factors as SIDS guidelines, cultural needs and requests from parents when tailoring individual children’s sleeping routines.
