    Children over 1 year old will be provided a cot (which stands on 4½-6-inch legs) on which to sleep or nap. Parents may provide their children with their own sheets and covers. Children under 1 will have a crib to sleep in and be placed on his or her back unless medical information is presented to the provider by the parent that shows that is inappropriate for that child.
    There are two day care rooms in which to place sleeping children. Ms. Gonzalez will make a decision regarding the appropriate placement of sleeping children within the two rooms. She will use an electric monitor whenever not present in the room, so long as all parents have given written permission. Ms. Gonzalez may sleep while the children are sleeping as long as she has written permission from every evening/overnight parent in the program. In the event she has not obtained permission to sleep, she will remain awake at all times and physically check sleeping children every 15 minutes.
    Children will only be released to his or her parents or guardians or other persons designated to pick up as requested by the parents/ guardians. Children are not allowed to leave the program unsupervised.
