Giving up the nap

Q. My husband and I are both working parents. On the days we work, our 3- year-old daughter will nap for 2 hours at daycare. But then she’s not sleepy in the evenings and will stay awake until 10 p.m. She wakes up at 7:30 a.m. How much sleep does a 3 year-old need? Does she still need a nap? The average 3-year-old child requires 11-13 hours of sleep per day.
