'Sleep' drives many family conversations, aspirations, and sometimes concerns. A good sleep positively impacts our children's day, their emotional regulation, and learning outcomes. In early childhood group care, children's sleep can be significantly impacted as they adjust to a new environment, routines, noise and many other extenuating factors. This workshop dives into how we can support quality sleep for our infants and toddlers in ECE environments and includes;

  • Safe sleep
  • Conducive sleep environments
  • Cultural considerations in sleep habits and routines
  • Bridging the gap between home and early childhood service
  • Understanding the science of sleep
  • Creating a positive relationship to sleep
  • Unpacking your own values and how these impact children's sleep in ECE
  • Sleep routines, rituals and managing groups of children at sleep time.
