Is Nap Time Beneficial To Kindergarten Children
Need a suggested time my son need to go to sleep. He wakes up at 630 am and will be starting kindergarten gets out at 2pm. They don't take naps?
Outgrowing naps: Some kindergartens phase out nap time. If your son has to be up at 6:30am, I would suggest a bedtime around 7:30-8pm.

Varies: The need for naps varies considerably across children, along with the overall trend of decreasing need over time. Total sleep over the day is the key. Trouble is those who fight taking naps divide broadly into those who really need one and those who don't. In general, toddlers benefit from an afternoon nap; if it's a struggle, look at ways of making it more routine and less of a battle. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
