EYFS: 3.59


At Moulton Nursery School & After School Club we aim to ensure that all children have enough sleep to support their development and natural sleeping rhythms in a safe environment.


Due to the age of children we take we do not have a separate sleeping room. We do have two quiet areas for children to rest with cushions and blankets should they need too.


If a child was to fall asleep we would make their safety our priority.


The safety of children sleeping is paramount. Our policy follows the advice provided by The Cot Death Society and Lullaby Trust to minimise the risk of Sudden Infant Death. We make sure that:

  • children are monitored visually when sleeping. Checks are made every 10 minutes and children are never left in a room without staff supervision at all times

  • When monitoring, the staff member looks for the rise and fall of the chest and if the sleep position has changed
