Resources to Animate
The Goodnight Bag resources can be an integral part of a family support strategy and a foundational part of the transition to school strategy.
You are invited to use the Goodnight Bag resources as a bridge between the community and school services, helping parents and their children feel more confident and prepared to navigate the next step(s). The following resources can help guide the process.
Healthy Sleep Habits
Learn about the fundamentals of healthy sleep habits from Dr. Pamela Mitelman from the Kids’ Sleep Clinic in Montreal, Quebec. While this video is intended to inform educators and animators (particularly the Q&A section), there is a similar video in the parents section that caters specifically to parents.
