Nap May Make Your Preschooler Smarter

Cutting out naps during preschool may be detrimental to your child’s brain development. A recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that skipping nap time resulted in a 10% drop in accuracy in a memory learning game. 

In sleep medicine, we know how important sleep is for memory consolidation and creative associations, especially in young children. Now some underperforming preschoolers are taken out of nap time for individualized learning. Probably a bad idea.
