No More Naps!!

So I've got several friends with three year olds who have decided that their children are better off without naps, and then going to bed at 7:00.

It made me wonder - what are they going to do when they get to kindergarten and have to take one.

Or do children no longer nap in kindergarten? I loved taking one when I was little, but that was back in 1973. Has all of that changed?

2 1/2 kindergarten? What's that about? Things have changed. When I was little, it was all day...just like 1st grade and on.

What state are you in?

Kids don't have to nap, it's rest time. They lay quietly for 20 minutes (however long). I never napped in kindergarten. My son doesn't nap and he's in pre-k. He just lays quietly for rest time.
