Doodle Bugs! Standard of the Week: 2/04/13

This week’s SOTW reminds faculty to make rest time developmentally appropriate.

For Infants:

  • Infants are placed on their backs to sleep, in a crib, unless they have a physician’s note.
  • Cribs must be at least 2 feet apart when occupied; rocking cribs is prohibited.
  • Infants have individualized, personalized schedules for every thing, including naps.
  • Be sure sleeping babies do not cover their faces with blankets.

For All Ages:

  • Soft music
  • Personal attention
  • Activity choices
  • Appropriate lighting
  • Consistency
  • Active supervision

The SOTW will be posted for parents to see, in the faculty lounge, and placed in each classroom’s mail-slot.
