Rest Time

Rest time is an important time of the day for all young children and is mandated by the State of New Hampshire for all programs.  Each program has a block of time designated as rest (see below).  The blocks outlined below are approximate, but may change depending on the needs of the group.   Children who fall asleep will be allowed to awaken at their own pace within this block of time. If your child’s napping appears to interfere with his/her bedtime at home, please make an appointment to discuss the situation with your child’s teacher and create a plan that will meet your child’s needs.
