Re: NURSERY that insists 3-4 years old to sleep!

I find it quite regular that kids would sleep at the creche but not at home, since at the creche they have their own little music routine, and some kids like to follow it to the button, seeing other kids do it, a team effort. At home it is pretty much only if I drive my child somewhere, she falls asleep, the car rocks her. But she slept every single nap time, pretty much, at creche until recently, now at almost 5, it's about 3x a week. What I found funny was they had a teacher with them in the nap room, who would always sleep with them. Quite often I got the report that the teacher was so tired she dozed off, while kids were tickling her, playing together and certainly not sleeping. It's true that napping during day increases the quality of awake time, and used to make falling asleep at bed times better, calmer, not so overtired. But now, if I get a child that naps, it's harder to have quick and painless bedtimes. Warm baths and comfort meals help that. Kids back home have quiet times and nap until 6, so I do welcome the same effort to provide a little siesta here, too.
