Cindy Davenport is a registered midwife, is passionate about the health and wellbeing of families, and offers a response-based approach to help babies and children with sleep problems.


The need for sleep and rest varies as children develop and grow, and in many cases, an early childhood setting is very different to the home sleep environment. This can cause restlessness and difficulty sleeping for children of all ages.

This webcast examines practical safe sleeping strategies for settling multiple children in Early Childhood Education and Care settings. It will examine many methods of settling groups of babies or children, as well as ways to discuss and work collaboratively with parents and caregivers to support a child in sleep.


This webcast will assist you to:

  • Develop skills and strategies to help settle multiple children
  • Ensure that babies and children sleep safely while meeting quality standards as set out by ACECQA
  • Discuss best practice and  policies as they relate to sleep and rest
  • Enhance your ability to offer sleeping experiences that are appropriate to your ECEC environment.
