A Child's Place maintains written policies that guide our approach to major issues and provide a common understanding of many practical and safety related issues. Our policies reflect current state and federal regulations as well as best practices in early childhood educaiton. We suggest that all parents become familiar with our policies and we encourage you to contact your child's head teacher or the Executive Director if you have any questions. Our programs and policies reflect the contributions of all involved and are updated regularly to reflect parent feedback as well as changes in state and federal regulations and best professional practices.
REST PERIODS - FIRST STEPS PROGRAMS
- A Child’s Place recognizes that young children’s nap needs vary and the individual needs of the child will take first priority.
- Infants will rest as needed and preschool children will have a regularly scheduled rest period after lunch each day. (This also applies to 10 Month children who stay for 5 hours or more).
- Each child rests on a cot/crib/mat. Families must supply a cot-size blanket, and crib sheet. A soft toy from home may be brought as well. These articles must be taken home weekly for washing. BE CERTAIN TO LABEL ALL ITEMS! (State of Connecticut mandates portable crib style sheets for infants).
