Nap Time

Nap time (1:00-3:00) is for students who will be attending for a full day or extended care.

This is a time for rest and reflection; the children have a mat to rest on with a few blankets and a small pillow from home. They are encouraged to keep quiet so that the sleeping children are not disturbed.

​The children who do not sleep are given quiet activities in the last 20 – 25 minutes of the nap period.
