"The Importance of Naptime"

Course Description:

Different children and different caregiving styles mean children sleep differently at different ages. This course addresses how much sleep a child in care really needs, and strategies to help each child learn to self-soothe, by the ages of the children. These strategies lead to well-planned nap routines and calmer afternoons for both the children in care and the caregiver.

The goal of this course is to expand the participants’ knowledge about how much sleep children really need.

To do this, participants will

  • 1. Read information about the ages and stages of sleep needs for day care children.
  • 2. Reflect on what happens when an adult does not get enough sleep.
  • 3. Reflect on sleep routines experienced as a child and describe how those may impact napping routines and their expectations in the day care program.

This course provides training in the following New York State Office of Children and Family Services regulation areas: 1 hour in (1) Principles of Childhood Development. After reading the material, you will answer 5 true or false questions worth one point each, a reflection exercise worth 10 points, and four questions applying the course information to your program worth 10 points for a total of 25 points. A score of 20 points, 80%, must be achieved to pass this course.
