Full Time Children

Between 12 noon and 1:00, the children who stay for the full day have lunch which is provided by the parents. Then they have a quiet time. Children who need to nap, have rest mats and blankets and are allowed to nap in a calm, supervised room. We do not force anyone to nap but will ask some children to rest for awhile in case they do fall asleep. Some nappers will nap for 1- 2 hours. The afternoon routine varies depending on the number of children awake and the number of nappers.

Why are Routines and Schedules Important?

• They influence a child’s emotional, cognitive, and social development. 

• They help children feel secure. 

• They help children understand expectations. 

• They help reduce behavior problems. 

• They can result in higher rates of child engagement.
