The children who are staying on for the afternoon will spend a bit more time outside before returning to the classroom for a rest.
We rest on mats with a pillow a blanket from home. Usually all the children end up sleeping and some children need rocking as well. We sometimes read a story or tell a seasonal story as they drift off to sleep.
We wake gently and begin to put or rest things away. Freeplay until the parents arrive between 3 and 3:45 for pickup.
