Sleep is vital to health for everyone but most importantly to children, due to their rapid growth and development in such a small period of time. It is estimated that children should sleep for approximately 50% of the day. This is essential to the development of a child as their behaviors, memory and social skills mature significantly during this time. Sleep studies show that if a child is sleep deprived they may not develop and learn to their full potential and also their physical health could be compromised too. And so, it is important to ensure children get the correct amount of sleep to ensure their development isn’t affected.
Taking all these factors into consideration, IAS takes priority in providing a sleep environment that is comfortable and safe for the children. Ensuring children have enough sleep is as important as feeding them healthy food.
A better sleep routine ensures their cognitive and behavioral development as well as their physical health.
