Hi my 5 year old DS is starting prep next week and I am starting he bedtime and wake up pattern now to get him ready!
What time does your 5 year old go to bed and wake up.
He has always been a bit of a night owl even as a bub and I have been gradually getting his sleep time earlier.
Currently I'm trying for in bed at 7 and usually sleeps till 6:30-7. Is that enough sleep for him? I'm expecting when he starts prep he will probably we exhausted and ready to sleep earlier. He currently doesn't fall asleep till around 8-9 he just never seems to fall asleep early unless he has had a huge day.
Thanks for reading

My 5yo FYOS went to bed at 730. He falls asleep sometimes straight away, other times by 830. Hes an early bird so is up by 6-630. He was used to 4 days of daycare and wasnt really tired until end of 3rd term. Other mums have told me is par for the course.

Yes, my DS(7) still has a bed time of 7 but stuffs around in bed until 7.30ish and his get up time is 6.45. HE will be exhausted from next week onwards. Trust me.

Thanks for your replies ok so I'm guessing his bed time is ok then and I'll be looking forward to him crashing out earlier next week then hopefully!

7.30, and I've managed to still inflict it on my 9yo who is going into year 5

Depends on the child.
I have energiser bunnies. Up 5-6am, trouble getting them down before 7-7.30pm and than still awake at 9pm (thankfully usually quiet in their beds).
DS1 didn't crash any earlier when he started school. I am not expecting DS2 to either. DS1s friends were falling asleep before six, we called 8pm a good night. DS1s friends had troubles being woken at 8am, he was bouncing out at 5-6am as normal.

At that age, it was 7-7.30 bedtime. My 8 & 9 year olds still have a 7.30pm bedtime. By the time they wind down, it can be 8.30 though.
