  • i'm a preschool teacher in california. here, we must provide a place for napping until a child goes off to kindergarten. some parents complain, but frankly, all of the children sleep, some every day. if they don't fall asleep after a period of quiet resting, we let them lay on their cots with a book or two. they still need to be quiet and stay on their beds, because their friends are sleeping. most sleep for at least 2 hours. once they're 4 1/2 or 5 that amount is usually reduced. frankly, the consistency we offer at naptime is a structure they look forward to. we eat, go potty, and lay down in a dim room (not dark), with soft music playing. my kids, who are grown ups now, always napped until kindergarten (and after kindergarten, if they needed it!) good luck!
