5 Tips for Decorating a Daycare

Posted

Whether you are opening a daycare center or simply decorating a daycare room at a gym, workplace, etc., it demands a lot of careful thought. You know that kids manage to get hurt on nearly anything, so everything added to the space must be carefully selected. Of course, you want the décor to be fun, and it sure would be nice if things are durable enough to get your money's worth out of them, too.

.

  • Bean Bag Chairs for Kids - There are no sharp edges or hard arms on bean bag chairs for kids. Plus, these are furniture pieces they can easily crawl into themselves, and they will not fall off of. Many bean bag chairs for kids have removable and machine-washable covers, which will come in handy for cleaning juice spills and muddy shoe prints. Plus, these seats will last a lot longer than traditional chairs.

.

  • Floor Cushions - Large floor cushions are perfect for story time, and they can easily be stacked in a corner when they are not being used. Also, if you cover a large area on the floor with them this makes a perfect nap area.

.

  • Decorated Walls - You have probably already selected your color palette and know what shade you are painting every wall. Have you considered having a fun mural painted on one of the walls? There is also an abundance of kid-themed wall decals you can add. Maybe you want to even consider using chalkboard paint on the entire bottom half of a wall, so you have a giant chalkboard for them to use.

.

  • Low Shelves and Bins - Daycares can quickly turn into a mess without plenty of storage. You don't want any tall shelving units that could be potentially pulled over, if a little monkey decides to ty to climb on them when you turn your back. You can designate a bin to each child, too, so they have a place for their hat and mittens, lunch (if they bring their own), and any art work they will be taking home with them.

.

  • Playground Equipment - Most daycares have regular toys and games. If you have the space there is no reason why you can't create a mini playground indoors. Cover the floor (and even nearby walls) with gym mats. Add low slides, tunnels, balance balls, large cushioned blocks, and any other safe age appropriate playground-like equipment that will encourage them to burn a little energy.
