As youâ€™re outfitting your daycare, pre-school, or pre-K classrooms with various daycare supplies, donâ€™t forget to get plenty of nap blankets (shown) to keep on hand for nap time. Normally, a couple a dozen nap blankets is recommended for most classroom situations, as youâ€™ll want a few more than you have students, just in case some of them need to be laundered; you donâ€™t want to be caught short. Having uniform nap blankets will also help teachers avoid quarrels over â€œfavoriteâ€ blankets.
Nap blankets are great for kids to not only keep warm while napping on a sleeping cots, but children will sleep better and feel more secure if theyâ€™re covered with even a light nap blanket. Itâ€™s not practical for kids to bring their own blankets from home, and most likely school policies will discourage keeping them stored in classroom closets.
