What time starts your school day?

One of the things I don't like about traditional school is the very early start. My DD is definitely NOT a morning person, and neither am I. So I had planned on a later start. My ideal time is to wake up at 8 and start lessons at 9. But my DD is sluggish and makes us even later than that on most days.

What time do you start your lessons?

My older 2 kids are usually up at 8am and they are supposed to be ready for the day at 9am. Then, we do clean up and chores. THEN we start school stuff. We don't really get going until around 10am. I would like to bump that up to 930, but it's hard.

We are usually up at 545 because my husband can't drive & we have to take him to work. We take our time waking up & getting going though. I like to be started by 9 am  at the latest just because my middle child has Aspergers &  if we arent' started close to the same time each day it throws her off & we have trouble getting anything accomplished. lol

We try to start around 10am because DD is just not a morning person. If we start later, we usually finish by 3-4pm. When we started earlier, we'd still finish around 3-4 pm, it was just  a lot more painful!

We are up at 9 or 10 and we start school at 1 pm, it works for us.

We are NOT a morning type family. LOL  I HATE early mornings. :)  We get up around 8 and eat breakfast and do chores until 10. Then school starts at 10.  Somedays we don't start until 11. I just vamp up the day and or the week to keep us on our schedule. :)

We wake at 8am and get to school by 9am....usually...LOL

Sometimes 9:30ish...DS2 has ADD and works best when he is fresh in the am and DH works nights so he gets up for work around 1~2pm and he is a huge distraction to the kids who want to play with him.

My kids are morning people, but we adults are not.  I get up around 8 or 9 and we are starting class by 10 (I don't have to check into work until around 10 either).  This works well for us.  We are typically done by 2 with an hour break for lunch in there somewhere.
