7-Step Schedule for Getting Kids to School On Time - Every Day!

Are you tired of being late because kids aren't cooperating and mornings get out of control? Try my schedule! Most important is that kids wake well-rested and cooperate without whining. We decide our "in the car" time then I use this timeline: 

  • 6:30: Kids wake on their own and have 15 minutes of alone time. 
  • 6:45: Kids get dressed. 
  • 7:00: Have breakfast and practice spelling words. 
  • 7:25: Kids clear dishes while I clean the kitchen. 
  • 7:30: Take vitamins, brush teeth, feed fish and pack backpacks. 
  • 7:45: Get shoes/coats on and head to the car. 
  • 7:50: We're rolling on time!

Try it!

I love the idea of 15 minutes of alone time! I might have to try that.
