With the school year fast approaching, it’s time to start practicing a sleep routine for kids who are headed back to class.

But what time is optimal to get kids to bed?

According to the American Academy Of Pediatrics,

  • Infants from 4 to 12 months should get 12 to 16 hours of sleep (including naps)
  • Children 1 to 2 years old should get 11 to 14 hours (including naps)
  • Kids 3 to 5 should get 10 to 13 hours (including naps)
  • Children 6 to 12 year olds should sleep 9 to 12 hours a night
  • Teenagers should get from 8 to 10 hours of sleep a night

With that in mind, Wilson Elementary School posted this chart to help parents and guardians get kids in and out of bed at a healthy and reasonable time.
