Sleep & Rest Time

Under 2’s typically require a sleep during the day at Whippersnappers. For the Under 2’s we have a specific room designed especially for children to sleep in. The room has a separate thermostat where the temperature is monitored to a comfortable level. Each child has their own free standing cot and bed linen specifically designated to them.

We encourage you to bring any special item (named) that your baby/toddler settles with during sleep time. It is against our policy to put babies/toddlers to bed with a bottle or feeding bib on.

We will endeavour to follow the same sleeping routine that you have at home. You will be asked on the ‘All About Me’ information form about your child’s sleeping routine.

Over 2’s are also encouraged to sleep or rest and have their own stretcher beds and linen designated to them.

All children are monitored during sleep/rest times. Your child’s sleep patterns are recorded and available for you to view daily. For further information please ask the Supervisor or Director for a copy of our Sleep Policy.
