Kindergarten quiet time? (Long post sorry!!)
My son is 4, he started pre-k this yr and he was doing great... Let me mention that he stopped taking naps when he was 2, hes never been in a classroom setting, and hes been with me(as im a stay at home mom) since he was born so no need for daycare. He plays with out kids great hes just not used to being a classroom all the time and listening to strangers.
He did bad the first week then great the next few weeks took a nap almost every day! He has 2 teachers (very different from one another) ms. M and ms. V. Ms. V and my son do very well together she understands he will have trouble at nap time sometimes and think he should work at it and hell get it. On the other hand Ms. M doesnt want to work with him and told me if i can get him before its nap time!! I was shocked that a teacher asked me this first of all but i agreed, only because this is my sons first yr at school and i want him to have the best experience possible, and i dont want him to think he teacher is anoyyed with him bc he doesnt want to sleep. So your probably saying well he doesnt have to take a nap but just lay their quietly! For my 4 yr old its very hard bc hes very active. and he does lay there but before the hr and a halfs up he gets bored.. they used to let him do activities at the beginning but now they dont. And to make matters worse its where they have him located. He is right beside the teachers desk and on the other side it a toy shelf, (on the other side of the toy shelf is a child) They say he kicks to shelf and that he plays with all the toys. Ok so i told them to move him! thats obviously not a good place for him. He does better in corners where theres not much movement and they said they would try it.. but i dont think they did bc he is in the same spot when i go get him early!! So i agreed i would come get him at 1 instead of 2:15 i think its whats best for him at the momement and maybe as the yr goes on i can keep him there longer but im not stressing it, hes only 4! and this teacher is expecting to much from him! and its saddens me that she is just giving up bc she doesnt have the time for him. but its her job!! ANWAYS Soo sorry for my rambling post ansd thank you for reading!!
My questions is i know every school district is different but Do they have nap time in kindergarten. I have heard its only 30 minutes but ive also heard up to 2 hrs!! which is insane to me
