A Restful, Comfortable Nap for Our Preschoolers

Help me give my students new sheets for the cots they nap on.

My Students

I teach at a Head Start program in South Chicago. A majority of our students come from low-income families. Many of my students are also dual language learners. Most of my students join my classroom at just three years of age and stay with us until they transition to kindergarten.

Having the opportunity to watch my students grow, develop new skills, and learn over a two year period is extremely rewarding.

I get to see them come in as shy three's and walk out as confident five's. Although many of my students come from low-income families, their curiosity, their energy, and their eagerness to come to school to socialize and learn are inspiring!

My Project

Every afternoon our preschoolers lay down on their cots for a two hour nap. Our children must keep their shoes on during their nap. Over the year, the sheets get worn and torn from daily use and weekly washes. We are hoping, with your help, to add two complete class sets of new cot sheets. We are asking for two complete sets because accidents sometimes happen, and being able to wash sometimes takes time. Having a second set of sheets ready will ensure that no matter what, there is a sheet ready for each bed while some are being refreshed in the wash.
