Connecting the dots between learning, sleep, and mental health
who we help
The ZzzPower Sleep Program is BC’s first elementary school-focused initiative for school districts to champion the importance of healthy sleep and its direct link to learning and mental well-being.
parents and carers
Our introductory book, The Quest for Rest: Polly & Pickles, is a two-part story and sleep guide. It empowers parents with proactive, science-based sleep solutions, and it teaches children how they can get ZzzPower from healthy sleep.

"ZzzPower is a phenomenal program that's helped some of our learners at Fraser Wood Elementary understand the positive and powerful effect sleep has on their body. The program equipped them with tools they need to support a good night’s sleep. I'm so excited that ZzzPower is now available to all our learners in the Surrey School District!"

“Top Sleep Book! Invaluable resource. Engaging, inventive way to teach kids the importance of sleep. Plus provides a great resource for aunts like me who have a carload of nieces and nephews!”
"It’s a real epidemic. Polly’s problem rings with resounding truth.
Teaching in today’s climate, students in a class can be found lethargically laying about even during the most dynamic lesson. The juxtaposition of Polly and Pickles is subtle yet perfectly illustrates one’s struggle against the other’s lively bounce.“
