Our mornings at preschool are BUSY! We play, sing, dance, read, climb, dig, jump, talk, socialize, and SO much more! Nap time provides much-needed rest for our bodies and minds.
According to Kids Health (click for full article), “Crucial physical and mental development occurs in early childhood, and naps provide much-needed downtime for growth and rejuvenation.”
Also, “well-rested kids are quicker to settle down at night than overtired ones. Overtired kids are often “wired” and restless, unable to self-soothe at bedtime, and more likely to wake through the night.”
We love nap time at preschool…but we are always ready for the kiddos to wake and playtime to begin all over again!
