Have a toddler who sleeps for hours in childcare and is up half the night? A few weeks ago I caught up with Dr Sally Staton and filmed an interview based on the findings of her study, 'Mandatory Nap times in Childcare and Children's Night-time Sleep' The study found children who were exposed to more than 60 minutes mandatory sleep at childcare slept worse at night which continued when they started school. 
As parents we have evidence-based research of our own when our threenagers are up till after 9:00pm. The big news is that this has a knock on effect onto the first year of school. Once the children had entered school and mandatory napping has stopped, they still had a 21 minute reduction in total sleep duration.

Nature and animals make big impressions on small people. Come and take a look inside Clearview Kindy located in Nerang, a semi-rural area near the Gold Coast in Australia. I met Debbie about a month ago at the Nature Play Queensland Conference and she was talking about all the animals they have, how she had big plans for the centre and how the children interact with them. I was curious about the additional regulations they have to undertake to have the animals and how the children responded to having animals at kindy, so she invited me for a look inside.
