My son will be four in May, and oh, how he needs his nap. He still takes a two hour (give or take -- though more give) nap every day. He can survive every so often without a nap if something comes up and do pretty well. He is a really good sleeper, he will even go to bed on his own if he is really tired. A few times before nap we realize he is gone and sure enough he is in bed, sound asleep.
I used to work in a day care with 3-5 year olds. There were 36 kids in my room -- 20 of them ranged from 4 1/2 to almost six. Of the 36 kids only two did not nap daily. One never slept and we let her read on her cot, the other slept occasionally but not always. I personally think we really wore the kids out because I can't believe that those numbers would be the average.
