When does your preschooler go to bed/ get up?

This question is more about kids that have to get up and go to preschool/ daycare in the morning. Just curious. I'm thinking about moving up my little one's bedtime, but with daddy's crazy schedule, that means much less time with daddy, and less family dinners..

  • I don't really know why I said it was for preschool/ daycare kids (I guess because I didn't want a lot of replies from moms whose kids don't get up until 9-10). Really anyone's reply is helpful! : )

  • My triplets are still young, 13 months, but I put them to bed at 8pm on the dot. Dinner at 6, bath at 7, play time till 8. Usually in the morning they are up by 8-8:30ish. Then they nap at noon- 2:30 and sometimes even a cat nap around 4:30.

  • My son doesn't have preschool until in the afternoon, but they all go to bed at 8pm and usually wake up on their own at 6:30-7am.

    My husband gets home between 6:30 and 7pm so he gets MAYBE 1 1/2 hours with them. To have his time with them, once he gets home he takes over...he does all the showers, pajamas, bedtime, etc.

  • Just to add my two sense. My 4 year old goes down at 8:00pm and alseep ususally by 8:30am She wakes up at 7 am
    My 17 month old goes to bed by 7 and is alseep. She wakes up when ever the construction behind our house starts banging, which can be as eary as 6:30am. Ugh

  • My 3yo goes to bed at 9:30p, 6yo goes soon after. We all generally get up about 7:30 unless 3yo doesn't get his nap then he sleeps later. As long as everyone gets enough sleep, times don't make too much difference.

  • My 3 year old goes to sleep around 9:00 and is up around 6:30 - 7:00. He goes to daycare three days and is usually up and out of the house by 8:00am. :)
