I don't see the issue at all, but I happily snooze on mats on the ground.

The kids have nap time on mats from around 15 months. So from toddler room up.
Ds2 is in the kindy room now and when it's nap time they all get their mat, put their sheet on and lay down. The room is darkened and if a child doesn't want to have a sleep they're allowed to read a book or play with a toy quietly, on their mat.

They also don't have a separate sleep room - the cots are set up at one end of the room, the mats come out at lunch time. It's not a small centre either.
ETA - I ended up changing DS's schedule at home to match daycare. It didn't suit us at the time and he struggled with only 1 sleep a day for awhile, but is now fine.

My children's daycare only has 2 rooms. It's a small centre. One room is 0-2/3 and the other is 3-6. It's a small community centre run by council.
My son is almost 3, and he is in the baby room. He sleeps no worries at those times. If he sleeps later than 2, he will be awake until 8:30/9 which is way too late for him as he's usually in bed at 6:30.
I think kids are pretty adaptable. The cots are all in a separate room so the children who need them use them whenever they need.

16mths and ds was fine, he saw the other kids doing it and went with it. He has always slept well at daycare, he knows when his sleep time is and that's that.

I just re-read your first post and sort of agree in principle to changing home routine to match daycare. But not in my boys case. He is older and if I put him to bed at home at a later time I get 3 hours out of him. Daycare puts him down earlier and are lucky if they get 1.
- I sort of feel for the daycare staff though trying to fit different babies/toddlers needs into the day. I don't expect them to follow the home routines to the tee, they have a lot of children to accommodate.
Thanks for the input, it's making me think about things.
