Daycare Furniture

The layout of your daycare furniture can impact children's experiences.
When parents entrust their children to your daycare center, you want to make sure that the care you give far surpasses expectations. What do you want in a daycare center? To begin with, you want the right daycare furniture, so you can ensure that little ones are properly fed, changed and rested throughout the day.

Safe and durable daycare cribs and play yards will help babies and toddlers nap peacefully. Our daycare strollers make it easy to take the class out for a walk. When a baby needs to be lulled to sleep or fed, try one of our cozy glider chairs.

Do I really need a glider chair in my daycare?

Soothing a distraught child is much easier with a gently swaying swivel glider chair or rocking chair. The back and forth or side to side repetitive motion helps babies relax and calm down so they can drift off to sleep or eat peacefully. Rather than having to carry growing children around all day, caregivers can rest their backs and arms as they relax and snuggle with little ones. Even older toddlers can benefit from the calming motion of a glider chair when they are feeling upset or out of sorts.

Once children come to enjoy the relaxing effects of repetitive motion, they may even want to relax independently. Our baby rockers and wooden child-size rocking chairs will fit well in a reading corner or learning center. They are designed to look just like adult rocking chairs, but are the perfect size for your little ones. With a child rocker, children can take initiative by choosing to sit down and enjoy some calm alone time with a favorite book.

What features should I look for in a daycare crib?

Babies and toddlers need to feel safe and comfortable in order to fall asleep. With a tough daycare crib from Foundations, you won't have to worry about safety or convenience. All of the cribs we carry are attractive and user-friendly, with locking casters that make it easy to transport them when the room needs to be rearranged. We have compact models and folding models for those who need space-saving solutions. Choose any of our wooden or steel models so little ones and caregivers can rest assured.

If you don't need a full crib, or you would prefer a number of options, you can try one of our folding play yards. Play yards take up less space than cribs and can be set up and fit virtually anywhere. They are appropriate for infants and toddlers. This compact solution enables you to create an appropriate napping space virtually anywhere.

A comfortable crib requires some soft and snuggly linens. In addition to making sure that mattresses provide great padding, you also need sheets that are made for the soft and gentle skin of babies. We have super soft blankets, fitted sheets and zippered sheets that are designed just for cribs. Zippered sheets are the safe choice because they won't shift around or come off while little ones are resting.

What is the best daycare stroller?

After a relaxing nap, your young learners should be ready to go out and explore their surroundings. No one likes to stay inside all day, so when the weather is nice, consider going on a class outing with one of our sturdy daycare strollers. Six-seater and four-seater models enable one caregiver to push multiple children at once for a safe and smooth ride. Our selection of models from Angeles and Foundations includes durable, easy-to-steer baby buggies with individual harnesses for each child.

Do I really need a changing table for childcare?

When you are taking care of multiple babies and toddlers at the same time, having a changing station is essential. Changing tables keep all necessary supplies such as diapers and wipes organized, and enable caregivers to supply children with clean diapers without straining their own backs. We have models with built-in storage and steps for older children as well as separate storage shelves and cabinets that can be mounted right above the changing table. Choose from wall-mounted and freestanding models to find the ideal arrangement for your classroom.

School isn't all about outings, sleeping and changing, little ones also need a place to eat and do classroom activities. While most babies eat in high chairs, an arrangement with individual seats can take up a lot of space and be quite limiting to social interaction. Our six-seater toddler table gives little ones the support they need to sit up securely, so they can sit next to each other and easily reach the table surface. This arrangement is ideal for snack time, projects and group activities.

A supportive environment with the proper daycare furniture will help babies and toddlers thrive. Whether they are in the classroom taking a nap or out and about on a class adventure, little ones are sure to benefit from the safe and user-friendly designs of our models. If you are having trouble determining the ideal style or quantity among all of the excellent viable options, contact the Hertz Design Center for free project-planning advice.

Get little ones off on a head start with baby and daycare furniture from Foundations. Safe and functional designs give babies and caregivers everything they need. From feeding time, to nap time, to outdoor play and everything in between, Foundations has the quality and strength you need to serve babies and toddlers for many years.

A daycare center needs special furniture that is designed to endure constant use. Foundations baby cribs and daycare strollers will support little ones in the optimal ways so they can grow to be healthy and strong. With this durable, secure baby furniture, parents can trust that their little ones are in good hands.

Daycare cribs need to be a bit more flexible than regular baby cribs. When a caregiver is taking care of many little ones at the same time, it is important for them to be able to keep an eye on sleeping babies and active toddlers at the same time. Foundations Clearview cribs have safe transparent sides for easy supervision and observation. Rather than having to constantly walk over and look in on sleeping children, teachers can make sure that babies are secure from afar while still engaging with other children.

Foundations cribs come in a selection of sizes, styles and materials. Choose from metal and wood cribs with attractive designs, convenient features and tough construction. Wood cribs have a refined appeal and dependable quality. Portable cribs are especially desirable in a day care because they can easily be moved around to create space in a classroom. When they are not needed, they can be rolled out of the way so there is more room for activities.

When choosing the ideal baby cribs, don't forget the accessories. Zippered sheets are the safest choice for little ones because they will stay on mattresses even if children move around in their sleep. Matching blankets will keep babies cozy during nap time. Additionally, it is always helpful to have some extra crib mattresses in the event that the original ones need to be replaced.

If large daycare cribs are too bulky for the space you have, play yards are an excellent alternative. They fold up for easy transport, have a relatively compact footprint and can easily be set up in a matter of minutes. Playpens provide a cozy and safe place for babies to nap, but take up much less room than a full-size, or even compact crib.

When sleeping babies wake up, they will need to be changed so they can enjoy the day's activities in comfort. Changing tables From Foundations are great for both babies and their caregivers. Models are available with storage underneath so there is an accessible place for diapers, wipes and creams. For those who are concerned about space, fold-out changing tables can easily be mounted onto the wall of a classroom where they are ready to be used when needed, and barely noticeable when stowed away.

For those who take care of infants and young babies, glider chairs are always convenient to have. Rather than having to walk around the room carrying a baby that needs to be soothed, caregivers can simply sit in a glider rocking chair and let the smooth repetitive motion lull the baby to contentment. The reassuring back and forth motion has a calming affect on little ones that will help the whole room remain relaxed and peaceful.

Active babies and toddlers don't want to spend the whole day inside, but taking them on outings can be quite challenging without the right transportation. Foundations has a number of daycare strollers that are perfect for a trip to the park or a walk around the block. Tandem baby strollers are designed for safety and easy maneuvering. With each child seated comfortably and securely in an individual seats, walks in the park are just what they should be.

Older children in a daycare or preschool setting will enjoy travelling in style on a vibrant tricycle. Toddler tricycles will make a great addition to your outdoor activities. They promote important skills including steering and coordination and are tons of fun. Children will just love riding around on their own or cruising around a course that caregivers setup for them outside.

Having strong foundations enables children to get off to a great start. With the right daycare cribs, changing tables and glider chairs, you can ensure that any little ones in your care receive the all-star treatment. Let Foundations daycare furniture set your program at the top of the heap.
