  • Nap Mats

    I've been using sleeping bags, but I'm thinking about switching to kindermats and a blanket.

    The parents bring super thick sleeping bags that will barely fit in my cubbies. Then they think their kid needs posturepedic pillows to go with them.

    What do you use?

      the cots are toddler size, so one fold of the mat serves as pillow

    I use cots. Some parents provide blankets and others don’t. I do keep the blankets here & I wash them at the end of the week.

      I used foldable kindergarten mats for years but they've gotten really flimsy and not at all quality made like they used to be. I made the switch to foam mats that don't fold now. I have sheets for them but no pillows. Kids don't need pillows. I also have them bring a blanket to leave here and I launder it but I limit the size they are allowed to bring so I dont end up with queen sized quilts stuffed into cubby baskets. lol!

      Each child gets the same mat each day. The mats have clear plastic things attached so I can insert a card with the child's name on it so we know who's is who's.

        No idea what's up with the forum lately as I can't edit my posts and they sometimes appear in duplicate or triplicate. Grr!

        I have some of the kindermats that I found on clearance so maybe I'll get sheets for them and try those and until they need to be thrown out. Then I'll get something different.

      I use cots now and have for a few years. Since kindy doesn't nap now I was unable to find nor keep replacing the tri-fold two-inch mats. Each cot has a name on it with white duct tape and have separate cubbies for each kid's nap supplies.

        I started with foldable cots but I was sick of watching them so I sold them. I switched to tri fold mats from erc4kids just before 2020 and I was glad I did, so much easy to clean.
        Also they fit in pillow cases.

        I use to offer pillows (travel pillow with zip on cases) after a year old but some kids would refuse the pillow and others just put it on the floor. I still offer blankets, some take them some don't. My mom hemmed some flannel sheets for me to use as blankets.

          We use cots and cot sheets for the children and then they bring their own blanket that we send home on Fridays to be washed over the weekend

            I use three inch crib mattresses and slip-on envelope sheets.
