DD2 started daycare a few weeks ago just on a monday.
She has so far refused to sleep at daycare.
I discovered yesterday that the last 2 mondays they've been trying to get her to sleep on a mat on the floor instead of in a cot in the cot room.
Im guessing this could be contributing to her not sleeping at daycare as at home she sleeps in a cot and is totally not the kind of kid to just fall asleep anywhere so laying on the mat would be a great game for her.
Im going to talk to the room leader tomorrow but was just curious as to what other 20mth old's sleep on/in at daycare.

20mth old - sleeps at daycare

My kids started daycare when they were 15 months and 18 months. They only ever had the beds/mats on the floor. I think its pretty standard apart from in the nursery/babies room.

Dd started in a bed/mat at childcare about 2-3 months ago....normally they start them earlier at our cc, but she was always hard to get to sleep so we stuck to the cot. She moved as thy needed the space for a little one and she was getting ready to move in to the bigger kids room where they only have beds.

Hmmm i might ask if they can put her in a cot for a few months while she settles in than move to a matt towards the end of the year in prep for moving up to the toddler room next year

Nope it's not the norm at our daycare.
0-2 room has adequate amount of cots, no kids sleep on the floor and I would not be impressed if it were the case with my 15mth old who is used to sleeping in a cot!

It's same at DD day care. She is 20 mths and in the 0-2 room and they all sleep on mats on the floor except the real little ones who go in cots or prams. DD never sleeps at day care because of it.
Ive suggested they put her in a cot but they don't... It's only one day a week so I let it go

My DS is in an 18 - 24 month old room and they all sleep in little trundle beds.
Up until the age of 3 all the rooms at DS daycare go up in 6 month increments. I thought all daycares worked that way!
