Our policies :: sleeping baby policy

I will discus with you in detail the sleep routines you have established for your baby and how I can best accommodate them into my own routine and working day as I may have nursery runs and pre & post school pickups to include. These discussions will need to be on going as the sleep needs of your baby will change as s/he grows and develops.

As a working parent you too need your sleep so it is vital that I work in partnership with you to provide a sleep routine for your child that fits your requirements. I will need to know how may naps your child normally has, for how long and at what times during the day.

When is the latest I can let you child sleep until without it affecting their night time routine?

Do you want me to wake your baby after a certain length of time or can I let him/her sleep on?

What routine do you have to settle your child?

Where does your baby prefer to sleep?

Do they have a dummy or comforter?

I will regularly check your baby when s/he is sleeping. I will record the time slept on the record sheet.

If you ever have any concerns over your child's sleeping routine please do discuss them with me and we can make arrangements to change times etc if necessary.
