Monday was the first day of school for my ds so after school when I picked him and he kept complaining in the car he was really tired and then within 5 minutes he fell asleep in the car..so now I'm wondering why the school doesn't allow napping time I mean not even 30minutes of nap time. Now I'm concerned and the school year just began...I'm wondering will this affect his grades. How in the hell is he going to stay focused and alert from 7:40am- 2;40pm..does your child's kindergarten teacher do this too? :/

That is part of the reason we opted out of kindergarten, they expect way too much out of them at such a young age. 

I fully believe that kindergarten should be half days or allow an hour nap time.

I honestly didn't know schools still did naps. He will be fine, just give him time to adjust.

Ds's full day K didn't have naps either, most 5 year olds don't nap anymore anyway

I didn't get nap time in Kindergarten and I'm 35.  There are no naptimes in our county.  And our girls survived!  Considering neither of them took regular naps after age 2, it was all good.

Out school doesn't have nap time for kindergartens either. For the first two weeks they get 10 minutes of quiet time that slowly gets weaned away. Shift his bedtime so that he is getting enough sleep at night and he will adjust to not napping during the day.

My dd went to 2 schools for kindergarten, the first one they had a "rest time" where the kids who still napped could nap but the kids who didn't just had to lay down and wait. I found it counter productive and pointless.

Her other school did not have anything like that. They definitely do not take naps in first grade, so it's probably a good time to start breaking the nap habbit.
