“It’s time to get up, it’s time to get going, Go Kids Go!”

Monday mornings can be difficult to get children out of bed, especially if there have been late nights on the weekend. Sleep is an important aspect to a good health. Research shows that a consistent sleep and wake times (including weekends) can benefit children’s performance in the classroom by increasing their focus and their capacity to learn new material. Plus, they will feel better! So how much sleep do we need? The chart below are the recommended sleep hours for children up to 18 years of age.

To fall asleep faster try these: allow 1 hour to get ready for bed, no technology or screens 1 hour before bedtime, keep the house quiet (no arguing or fighting) and choose a good book to help you relax.
