Individual Sleeping Habits

Culture of Sleep

Every child is different and so are the sleeping needs and sleeping habits from child to child. There is no question about this and yet the question remains as to how far a kindergarten can respond to the individual sleeping habits of each child. Parental wishes, observation of the specialists, age mixture he child groups, personnel key and premises are not always in harmony. Taking into account all these aspects, a midday rest regime should be provided for in exchange with the parents: noon rest for all, noon rest for no one, tiered sleeping groups or individual solutions.              

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND: Sleep is always in the aspect of security, because sleep is a defenseless condition and to find sleep requires security.

Who can sleep well when she is afflicted with grief? Who can sleep well when the neighbours are having a loud party? To fall asleep requires relaxation. Many things in life, people can achieve, if they make an effort. When it comes to falling asleep we do not succeed. If something is promised to an individual, it can motivate and help many things in life. We still cannot sleep. Threatening penalties and consequences only causes pressure and that is definitely the opposite of relaxation and does not help us fall asleep.

There is a biological need to sleep. In addition, developmental psychological and cultural factors also influence sleep rhythms.
