5 pieces of childcare furniture to buy on a budget

Cheap childcare furniture that doesn’t compromise on quality is hard to find. The market is so saturated it’s hard to choose. Plus, it doesn’t help that you have a Pinterest board full of design ideas, from Scandi-style childcare supplies to cute little roleplay kitchens in different sizes. You can’t have it all, but we made a list of items you can’t go without.

 

This piece of childcare furniture is the ultimate multi-tasker. You can use it to tidy the rooms so everything’s in its place. But if you take out the plastic bins, the kids can use it as a bag and shoe rack.

Staff can use the storage units as a display cabinet if they need one. It’s easy enough to fill the spaces with awards, pieces of art made in class, or little ‘discoveries’ made by the kids that just have to go on display.

 

The tables and chairs are some of Kinder Design’s best sellers. The children need a place to sit and learn, draw, or eat their lunch. The larger, rectangular tables are better for space so the kids don’t feel cramped together.

 

  • Stackable chairs

Stackable chairs are cost effective and easy to put away. It’s simple to stack them up and put them away in the corner when the cleaners come or there’s an event happening.

Another benefit? The chairs are made of PVC plastic, so they’re easy to clean when  accidents happen. The Harry Chair is an ideal example of this. Plus, it comes in three different sizes and five colours!

 

Little chefs, mechanics, and homemakers are made at kindy. This bit of childcare furniture is a staple and it’s common to see kids fighting over whose turn it is to use it.

Having one or two role play sets keeps the children entertained for hours and makes them practice valuable social skills. They’ll communicate and listen to other’s opinions, learn to share, and work in a group.

 

Preschool children often bring home ‘masterpieces’ from their art time. It’s a lot easier for them to paint if they have an easel. Kinder Design has easels than can accommodate up to three children, so nobody misses out!
