Here’s some great tips to ensure our tamariki get enough sleep:

  • Tamariki aged 5-13 years need 9-11 hours of sleep each night to help their body and brain develop
  • Encourage exercise during the day
  • Create a routine of going to bed at the same time each evening
  • If you can, keep the bedroom for sleeping only
  • Keep cell phones, computers, TV’s and video games out of the bedroom
  • Replace screen time 1 hour before bedtime with calming activities such as bathing, music, and reading
  • Keep the bedroom dark, quiet, and comfortable
