Sleep Policy

Footstep identifies the importance of offering children a quiet area where they may relax and have a sleep during the day.

  • Staff members will conduct physical checks on sleeping children to ensure they breathe normally and they are not hot or cold
  • Outdoor clothing and bibs will be removed
  • Children will be encouraged to snuggle with their comfort objects from home. Staff members will ensure that they are kept away from children’s faces during their sleep time
  • Sleep times will be recorded and staff members will check on the children and update the Sleep Chart every 10 minutes.
