Welcome to www.SleepforKids.org, the only website dedicated to children's sleep just for kids. This website was created by the National Sleep Foundation to provide easily readable information about the importance of sleep, sleep disorders, and tips for getting a good night's sleep to children ages 7 to 10, their parents, and their teachers.

This website includes quizzes to test children's knowledge and games to make learning about sleep fun. It is our hope that SleepforKids.org will provide information about sleep to school-age children which can set the stage for a lifetime of good sleep habits, and contribute to the prevention of life-long sleep problems.

Visit our Parents and Teachers section
for more valuable information about sleep.
