The important but routine tasks involved in ensuring children’s needs are met through each day. Care tasks may include feeding, diapering, toileting, washing, dressing/undressing, putting a child to sleep, and more. The time spent with children during these routines can be some of the most valuable for connection if adults take the time to involve the child, talk to the child, and make it enjoyable.

For children who are non-nappers it is important to be prepared with quiet activities. These quiet time activities may help alleviate stress for non-nappers as well as help children who need a nap get the sleep they need.
