Nice Beds for Healthy Heads!

My students need cots and supplies to take a nap! We all know how important napping is for development and growth.

My Students

Help our class get new beds for our sleepy heads! Pre-K students are required to rest their heads during our busy day at school and it is crucial that these students can rest comfortably.

I work at a public Montessori school where the classrooms are made up of children that are different ages.

I have 11 enthusiastic children that are 4 years old and 9 wonderful children that are 5 years old. I have a culturally diverse group of students who enjoy reading and learning. My students are in need of new napping equipment to help them rest and be ready for their afternoons!

My Project

The sleep mats we currently use are ripping apart at the seams and the children are unable to rest comfortably. With your help we can have new nap cots that will last for scores of pre-kindergarten students to rest contentedly upon. Research shows the benefits of napping for cognition, showing that naps can enhance visual, motor and spatial skills to the same extent as a full night of sleep in some cases. This is so important and will help to ensure they reach their full potential to learn. We are hoping to reach our goal and receive the new cots and sheets for our new school year. Please help my class acquire 15 blue cots and new sheets and blankets for the cots.

We are in need of new sleep cots to ensure our students get adequate and comfortable rest at nap time so they can maximize learning time later.

Research shows that nappers make fewer mistakes, are in better moods and in better health. "The more you nap the better you sleep, the better you do". Please help us reach our goal!!!
