Consistently get your child to sleep early every day. Your child's sleep routine should always be maintained.

Is sleep early the correct phrase?

Thanks.

The action is 'to get your child to sleep'. Ie get them into the state of being asleep. 'Sleep' is like the place or state you are getting them to. You want that to happen early in the evening, and not have them awake half the night.

So they don't 'sleep early'. That is not the connection.

They go to sleep early.

You get them to sleep early.

In AmE, I think the more common wording might be, "get you child to go to sleep early every day", or "get your child to go to bed early every day".
