• A three-to-five-year-old needs approximately 10 to 13 hours of sleep a day/night.
  • A child may have difficulties to fall asleep or may have nightmares.
  • Bedwetting, growing pains and changes to day-to-day routine may disturb the sleep.
  • If a child wakes up energetic and on a good mood in the morning, he or she has had enough sleep.
  • A child can still take a nap but as they grow older and preschool age is drawing closer, they gradually stop.
  • However, a rest in the middle of a busy day is still necessary.
