If you would like your child to take a nap, please inform the staff.  Infants sleep on their own schedule, as infants “graduate” we will transition them to the 1:00 p.m. nap time. Unless we have written instruction by a physician all infants are  placed on their backs for sleeping .

 There is a separate room with cribs and cots, children are supervised during naptime by a staff members.

Older children may also nap or, if parents desire, they may rest.  We have cots for older children, and they may bring a blanket or cuddly toy to be used during this time.  Bedding is provided.

Naptime is 1:00 PM until the child wakes.
