Healthy sleep is vital to children's physical, cognitive, and social development, but it’s difficult for some of our community’s most vulnerable children to get the sleep they need for good health and school success. Sweet Dreamzzz is dedicated to improving children’s health, well-being, and academic performance by providing sleep education and bedtime essentials to economically disadvantaged students and their families.
Sweet Dreamzzz has three, innovative programs that help children reach their fullest potential through healthy sleep. Our Early Childhood Sleep Education Program brings our comprehensive sleep health curriculum and bedtime basics (blankets, teaching teddy bears, books, toothbrushes) to Head Start and GSRP preschool programs. Our R.E.M. Sleep Program teaches low-income elementary school students how and why to get a good night’s sleep, and provides them with nighttime essentials (sleeping bags, nightshirts, books, toothbrushes). And our interactive Parent Sleep Education Workshop provides parents with tips and take-home tools for establishing healthy bedtime routines with their children.
Sweet Dreamzzz has empowered over 55,000 children with the awareness, practical materials, and adult support necessary to get the sleep they need to succeed in school and in life. Doesn’t every child deserve a chance at a good night’s sleep?
