Rest time will begin each day immediately following lunch, around 12:40pm. As children finish their lunches, they will lay out their rest mats and get their special stuffed animal and small blanket, if they have chosen to bring one. Children will read books quietly on their mats as they begin to quiet their minds and their bodies. Children will rest quietly on their mats until 1:20, or as needed. If your child does not rest, or you do not want them to rest longer than a certain time, please let me know. Children who do not rest will be given a quiet activity to do on their mats (a book, puzzle, etc.) to be respectful of the children who do rest.
