They have a strict schedule and it consists of 2 hour nap/laying down for all kids. My 5 yo is delayed so she is in daycare till I can get her in a special needs preschool (doing IEP's etc now). It will probably be another month or so before it is finalized.
Since she started napping it is causing nothing but problems at bed time. I never used day care before and not sure if this is something they will bend on or not. How do I approach it? There is no point in switching since she will be transitioning to preschool in afternoon soon. So the naps will go away.

I worked daycare in college. No matter what we had that 2 hour rest time. If a parent did not want their child napping, we gave that child books or coloring materials on their cot. That child did have to read/color quietly, and did have to remain on their cot. You can ask if that's an option.
I can understand your concern, for I cannot give my 4 yo a nap. Bedtime is terrible if she gets one. Her PT pre school doesn't do naps anyway.
