Bedding on the cots are washed on a weekly basis and the cots are disinfected.

Yes, blankets and toys can be a comfort for children. If your child(ren) need their blanket or sleep toy to go back and forth, just let the staff know, and they will make sure it goes home. If it is going to stay at the daycare, it will be washed on a weekly basis with the laundry. Other toys we encourage families to keep at home, as they may get lost or broken.
