School Year Bedtimes for Kids

It is a new school year which means the lazy days of summer are over and earlier bed times are ahead.

Many moms and dads are questioning, “What is the right time to put kids to bed?

Check out our chart below on school year bedtimes for kids based on your child’s age and wake up time!

Schedule of Bedtimes for Kids going to school


My son is 11 and catches his bus a full 1-1/2 hours before his 9 year old sister. At this age, he thought he should be allowed to stay up later than his younger sister but with an earlier wake up time, he should actually get to bed 15 minutes earlier than his sister. To keep peace in our family, they both go to bed at the same time. To keep peace in your family, show your kids our chart!

Getting adequate sleep is vital for our kids’ overall health, growth, and ability to learn at school. Start the school year off right by getting your kids to bed on time.
