Tips for Toddlers:
Bedtime consistency helps establish a routine that makes it easier for kids to go to sleep and get the rest they need.  Baths, putting on pajamas, brushing teeth, storytime, potty time (as appropriate) and bedtime around 7:30pm each night (including weekends) should help form good habits children expect.  We play soft music during nap time that helps to sooth and induce sleep.  You my want to incorporate your own soothing music at home.

Tips for Toddlers:
When children are having a melt down its best to walk away and ignore, but stay close by.  When they have calmed down suggest an alternative activity or start playing with one of their toys and invite the child to join you. Distracting the child has a calming effect and giving them an alternative activity will usually work.  Counting when they are able also helps the child refocus.
