One of the most important factors in the interior of your daycare is the furniture you use and how you choose to arrange it within your space. Wide open spaces and less clutter offer safer choices and more options. Storage units keep hazardous or unsafe materials locked or above children’s reaches. Proper planning of wet and dry areas, high traffic sections, quiet and loud areas, active play areas areas and a quiet section should be mapped out ahead of time to ensure effective care. Another important part of selecting furniture is buying storage and cubbies that are child-safe and allow for the option of locking or hindering a child’s ability to reach things. Wall mount storage units and fold-and-lock systems have been well received by daycares and teachers because they allow caretakers to restrict what children have access to. Make sure that the furniture you select for your daycare or preschool classroom is of sturdy construction and does not have sharp edges or corners.
