Creating a space for art in your child care program will provide many opportunities for young children to learn new skills. In the Art Space even the youngest child can learn to appreciate the beautiful designs, and colors that are found in art, Children will begin to develop new language that describes art, as well as explore new art processes, mediums, and tools.
The art space provides many opportunities for children to improve their motor, sensory, language, social emotional, and cognitive development skills as they learn to create.
I am a big fan of IKEA products. I like their affordability, durability, and flexibility.
IKEA offers a large variety of products that can be used in a Childcare Space. Their wide array of child sized furniture, toys, and organizational pieces are sold at an affordable price for providers. Their stylish furniture makes it a great choice for a provider with a shared space as well.
Please note: I'm not affiliated with IKEA in any way-other than being a fan of their products!
Below you will find over 40+ IKEA products that are being used in Childcare Settings.
A reading space (or Library as it is sometimes referred to) provides an area for young children to independently examine books and literacy materials. In addition to listening to stories read aloud, children are learning a great deal about language, and expanding their vocabulary in this very important learning space.
Below you can find some great Library & Reading Spaces shared by our readers as well as suggested items to add to your space based on the ages you care for.
