Welcome, this week meet Marian Iskander from the Little Winners Early Learning Centre in Hurstville, NSW, and learn why mandatory naps may not be in the best long terms interests of kids.
New study calls for changes to 'mandatory' naps
More evidence that long naps in early childhood settings may not be in the best interest of all kids has emerged from a QUT study.

The research examined the relationship between mandatory naptimes in child care and a child's night time sleep duration concurrently and 12 months later.

The research, led by Dr Sally Staton from the Sleep in Early Childhood Research Group, found that children who were exposed to more than 60 minutes mandatory sleep at child care slept worse at night and that this pattern continued when they started school.
