She is just 3 and has not napped consistently for a long time now. She still has a nap time and has never had a problem playing quietly. Now she is in a big bed and has slowly discovered that she can get out of bed during this time, and in the last few days has discovered that she can open the door and walk out.
I don't want to make it an issue where she will get in trouble if she doesn't stay in her room, but I need ideas about what to tell her to keep her in there. I know that kids have nap times at day care even if they don't sleep. I thought about giving her a timer (I'd have to get a quite one since the baby sleeps at this time too and dh works nights and is asleep too), or maybe sticker for days she stays in the whole time. Anyone have some ideas?

Both my kids stopped napping around 2 1/2... maybe she's done napping too?? In my son's preschool is they didn't sleep they have to lay on their cot and watch the movie of the day for "quiet time". If you are preparing her for preschool "naps" then maybe she could just have some quiet time in the same room your in - like sit in a chair and read or color.
