When it comes to kids it is impossible to overemphasise the significance of sleep. Sleep impacts every area of a child's physical and emotional development. From promoting growth and a healthy immune system to affecting concentration and behavioural issues, sleep has been found to play an important role. Whilst there is no 'one size fits all' when it comes to children's sleep requirements, sleep researchers recommend the following sleep guidelines for peak performance of children and adolescents.
- Babies: 14-18 hours throughout the day and night
- Toddlers: 12-14 hours per 24 hour period
- School age: 10-12 hours per day
- Teenagers: 8-10 hours per day
