Sleep and Rest Policy

Policy Rationale

MakerDojo delivers high quality and engaging educational holiday programs. With a significant number of stimulating activities and opportunities children may become tired and require a rest or break. 

Procedures

Makerdojo will provide sufficient breaks throughout the course of a program as well as a relaxation area within the MakerDojo space for children to access as needed. Children can make use of a variety of furniture such as couches, chairs, and tables along with non-program-related resources such as card and board games. 

  • MakerDojo staff will ensure they are always aware of the position of all children to provide appropriate supervision. 
  • The rest area may contain couches, chairs, cushions and tables with books, puzzles, cards, and board games available to encourage quiet time. 
  • Sleeping during a program is discouraged.
