Daycare furniture building safe environments

Kinder Design delivers nothing but quality daycare furniture. A safe environment isn’t only about protecting emotions or mental health. When you hear the word ‘safe environment’ one of the largest factors will be physical safety.

Kinder Design’s daycare furniture passes a battery of tests before it even goes on sale. From design to production, everything is monitored so we can assure customers we’re up to standard. The biggest name in quality assurance is TUV Rheinland, and you’ll find their logo on everything that’s undergone a quality assurance test.

TUV is the name to know for safety certification and training. The company inspects products, companies, and their internal systems and procedures to make sure everything’s ‘running smoothly’. Company boards have turned to them for neutral, third party inspections since their inception in Europe, where TUV started out inspecting boilers. The company came to Australian shores in 2007, setting up shop in Melbourne.

Our daycare furniture goes through mechanical, chemical, and material inspection before getting the stamp of approval. This gives Kinder customers peace of mind. The products they buy won’t break or cause any reaction on sensitive skin because of chemical washing.

Kinder Design does things differently compared to other daycare furniture manufacturers. Unlike some providers, we have a three year warranty period. This is three times more than that of our competitors. We also offer package deals, a seven day money back guarantee, and the option to get something themed. We know that centre owners are conscious about the image of their business, and we will  match their colour scheme at no extra cost.

A child has the right to play in a safe environment, and their parents should leave the centre knowing they’re in capable hands. This is why the Kinder team does its best to meet safety standards and provide quality products, tested and true.

Five common pieces of preschool equipment in Australia

Preschool equipment in Australia is unique. Preschools in Australia are unique, full stop. No two school systems anywhere in the world will use the same curriculum, but they all aim to provide a safe environment for children to learn and play.

Building blocks

Put these in the hands of children and they’ll build the world! Or, at least, the one in their imagination. Building blocks provide children chances to learn vocabulary around shapes and textures. They’ll also use critical thinking and analytical skills to put them together, making something that resembles objects seen in real life.  

Tables and chairs

What is any living area without a place to sit? A place to work?

Tables and chairs are preschool equipment that our customers can’t do without. Kinder stocks lots of different sizes and designs. Mini, large, round, or square, there’s something for every taste and budget. We even have height-adjustable seats available.

Kinder Design also has a customisation  option for customers needing something special. It’s better when preschool equipment matches the colour scheme and overall feel of the centre. We provide a theme matching service at no extra cost, so centre owners can have everything coordinated.

Paint and chalk

Kids are creative, everyone is. It’s an innate part of our nature. But sometimes creativity comes at the cost of mess. LOTS of it. Who else remembers making flower potions and mud pies in the backyard?

Daycares and kindies will have plenty of chalk and non-toxic paint, ready to use. Children sketching masterpieces on the outdoor concrete or a blackboard easel are a common sight. They’re readily available and easy to clean.

Storage

Kinder Design makes all sorts of storage items. Large, small, single boxes, and containers. Our storage units can even come in the shape of a castle if you want it! It’s one type of preschool equipment you’ll find everywhere, no matter what country you visit.

Storage units are, of course, made to put things away, but there’s plenty of other uses for them. Children and staff use them as display racks for crafts and awards, for one. Having a shelf unit in castle form, or even as a train, adds to the character of the centre and even provide another area for children to play.

Outdoor fun

Some kindergartens, preschools, and daycare centres give children time to play outside. Nature Play Queensland is an association that encourages outdoor, play-based learning so children spend more time outdoors.

In centres like this, you’ll find all the above preschool equipment, but there’s a lot of items donated from families, past and present. Tea sets, pipes made into tunnels, and toy trucks are just some of the items that get passed on.

Outdoor play areas like cubby houses and roleplay sets are so popular  teachers often have to regulate times for the children to use them. Kinder has these in stock for kids to unleash their inner MasterChef or mechanic.

No two countries have the same centre or curriculum when it comes to childcare. There is, on the other hand, similar preschool equipment. Creating a place to sit, a place to play, and even a place to sleep isn’t easy without one of the above five.

Preschool equipment you can have at home

Preschool equipment isn’t just for the day care centre. Savvy parents source small furniture for their house. Even cafe’s have ‘pint sized’ furniture, where their smaller customers can sip babychino’s.

Daycare centres and the like buy preschool equipment that’s exclusively for their use. Outlets like Kinder Design build child care furniture that’s functional and durable to last several years. The pieces are colourful and built for purpose, so the little ones use them with relative ease.

You can buy items for the home to keep your little one entertained. Children are creative and curious by nature and it’s good to have preschool equipment, or preschool-sized toys, around that keeps their minds occupied. For their inner artist having a standing blackboard (easel) is a great outlet. A blackboard easel plus a chalk set equals a relatively mess-free play time.

Cubby houses and roleplay sets are another piece of preschool equipment that parents and guardians will value. You might even want to join in during play-time! Kids will imitate what they see in real-life. Having a role play set, like a barbecue or a tool bench, encourages children to use the ‘tools’ effectively. One day with the play set, the next day they’re in the kitchen!

Building blocks are old faithfuls in both play and education. As toddlers, children learn about feel, shapes and how to name them. When they grow older, they look at the world around them more ‘scientifically’. Children and their friends will share ideas, learn how to fit the blocks together and use the correct vocabulary to describe them.

Centres specially order the preschool equipment from Kinder Design. At home, you can create a familiar, constructive environment for your child. Chalk and easels don’t make a lot of mess and gives kids the chance to can create some masterpieces. With building blocks, they’ll expand both their vocabulary and learn about construction. Role play sets allows them to become the MasterChef they see in television, or in their own kitchen. Your child will help you make dinner before you know it.
