Is Rest Time Chaotic Time?

Most full time programs that include children under five years old schedule a nap or rest time as part of the day. An important component of the day, rest time gives children the chance to physically rest and emotionally unwind. This midday break can go a long way in helping children stay healthy, alert and emotionally centered in the afternoon. When planning this part of the day be sure to consult your state or local regulations regarding naptime. There may be time, environmental, or safety and supervision guidelines you need to adhere to. Of course, children should be supervised at all times. Those considerations aside, here are some tips to make rest time a truly pleasant and restful time of the day.
