At this moment we are planning to reopen in October 2011. Looking forward to getting back to FDC and am already thinking of the wonderful activities and excursions we can do.

I have now closed Family Day Care until after we have our baby. We should reopen in late 2011 and are happy to take bookings now for late 2011/ early 2012.

Elizabeth Pantley - No Cry Sleep Solutions

I first read Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Nap Solutions book when I was struggling with one of our family day care kids who only slept for 45 mins and then woke up screaming thus waking all the other children too! Her parents had used Control Crying something I am really opposed to, within a few weeks I had her sleeping over 1.5 hours with no crying and by the time she left me she was sleeping up to 3 hours every day and so much the better for it, she was even waking up calmer.

Eliazabeth has lots of great information on her website including some free sleep logs though I cant recommend enough buying her books if you are struggling with your childs sleep or naps.

Her website is here
