Rest time is a quiet period of the day that is essential within our service. Our policy states that children will rest for at least 45 minutes of their day. It helps recharge and restimulate small bodies. Children learn to transform and reflect in a relaxing atmosphere. Please provide 2 cot size sheets or similar.
