What is a reasonable time for a 5 year old who is going to school to be in bed at night?
Our children are both in bed before 8PM. That means all the routine is over before that: baths, brushing teeth, reading books, the whole nine yards. If we don't then our son is a bear in the morning (or more of a bear, he is not a morning person). When we have both kids in bed by 8PM, then the odds are in our favor that our kids will wake up happy and fit for the public.
People are supposed to get at least 8 or more hours of sleep at night so if they have to wake up by say 7 to go to school then they should be in bed for sure by 10 or 11 but that's kind of late for a kid so I'd say around 9.
Bed time has always been around 9 for my older kids. My 9 month olds bedtime kinda varies at the moment. But when he is 2-3 it will likely be around 8 or 9 too.
It depends how much time the kid sleep in one night. I would definitively tend to reach as much as 10 hours of sleep each night. School could be exhausting you know! At our home, height o'clock was the maximum bed time for our 5 years old going to school on weekdays. Seven thirty was also considered on sundays when we had a weekend full of activities.
10.5 hours should be OK for a 5 year old. Sometimes 11 if we were outside more than usual and she was really tired.

What time do your children go to bed? How long do they sleep? What about naps? I've read that my younger children who are 5 and 7 should sleep for 12-14 hours and that my 12 year old should be sleeping about 10 hours...
