All of our students from our youngest infants class through Pre-K 4, take a daily nap. Sleep is a major requirement for good health, and for young kids to get enough of it, some daytime sleep is usually needed. Crucial physical and mental development occurs in early childhood, and naps provide much-needed downtime for growth and rejuvenation. Naps also help keep kids from becoming overtired, which not only takes a toll on their moods but may also make it harder for them to fall asleep at night.
Kindergarten students no longer require a nap and are at an age in which they can endure the full school day of activities.
