The non-profit Sweet Dreamzzz brought its Parent Sleep Education Workshop to educate parents on the importance of sleep to a pre-school in Michigan, as reported by the Farmington Voice.
The teachers and parents of Bussey Center for Early Childhood Education can now send their children to nap or to bed with sweet dreams, thanks to Farmington Hills-based nonprofit, Sweet Dreamzzz, Inc.
Parents and administrators recently learned how getting a good night’s rest is important, particularly at such a young age. Sweet Dreamzzz Director of Sleep Programs, Ann Raftery, explained how proper sleep is essential for learning and cognitive development, as well as for physical growth. She advised the parents that preschool is the peak time for sleep issues.
Sherri Jones, the Family Community Partnership Manager at Bussey Center, saw a need to bring in Sweet Dreamzzz based on parent feedback.
“We had trainings left in our budget,” Jones said. “We surveyed the parents and they said they had a difficult time getting their kids to sleep. It was the perfect fit.”
