Our daughter is 6 and does better with lots of sleep. We used to get her to bed by 8. Now she's not home from the dance studio on weekdays until late. It's 10 by the time we get her to sleep usually. I believe the recommendation for their age is 9-11 hours. Her body will probably tell her when she's tired. Trust her cues. Good luck figuring out what works best for you.

We are a busy family.  We both work and we are involved in sports so between dinner, homework, practice, chores, etc....(depending on the day), I like to give them some downtime so our bedtime for our 6 year olds (twins) is about 8:30.

9&5 year olds. Tonight it will be about 8:30 because older son is at basketball. Normally 8:00 to bed (8:30 until they stop talking and settle in) and 6:45/7:00 to get up.
