From playtime to naptime and everything in between, Hertz Furniture has all of the items you need to create a functional and inviting learning space. Choose from a wide range of storage options, imaginative play toys, cozy cots and more to find a winning combination that little ones will love.
What kind of tables should you get for a preschool?
Many of the activities in a preschool take place around activity tables. Hertz Furniture offers a huge selection of sizes, colors and styles so you can find the best preschool tables for your classroom. Choose from horseshoe, trapezoid, rectangle, kidney, square, circle, flower and clover shaped preschool tables. You can find toddler activity tables with matching edge banding and leg uppers, colored surfaces or vibrant ball glides. We carry models from Mahar, Academia and KFI.
Looking for preschool tables and chairs that match? Choose from a wide variety of sizes and colors to provide a custom fit for young learners in any setting. Make sure to purchase preschool chairs that are the right height for your students. If you are looking to outfit a preschool or daycare, 10”- or 12”-high chairs are a good fit.
What kind of storage do I need for my preschool classroom?
Once you have settled on a table and chairs, there are plenty of other preschool furniture items to think about if you want a classroom that ranks high on the Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale (ECERS). Shelving and cubbies are important for any classroom. They can provide great storage for books, toys, sensory bottles, ABC tubs, art supplies and more. Open lockers or cubbies give children an easy place to keep their personal items, backpacks and jackets throughout the day.
Colorful educational toys and circle time rugs can really spice up a preschool or daycare. For the youngest learners, a wide selection of Children's Factory soft-play toys can help develop both gross- and fine-motor skills. Wood Designs sand and water tables come in a variety of sizes, configurations and heights that will fit any space or age. Hertz Furniture also offers many imaginative-play toys.
You're probably wondering, so what should my preschool classroom look like? A preschool classroom should look like a fun and educational space. If you are looking for a way to spice-up your classroom, a colorful classroom carpet is a super choice. You can choose a classroom rug that teaches about geography, shapes, math or letters, or a design that is just for fun. We have preschool rugs from popular manufacturers such as Joy Carpets and Carpets for Kids.
What kind of classroom learning centers belong in a preschool classroom?
Whether you are teaching pre-k or preschool, classroom centers should be an integral part of the learning space. Some of the most common learning centers include an art area with a kids easel and lots of fun materials, a listening center and a sensory center. The dramatic play area is another popular one. It might include a store, house area, play loft, play kitchen and lots of other realistic items that encourage children to explore and use their imaginations.
Center time is a great opportunity for self-directed play. If you want to encourage each student to seek out challenges and try new things every day, differentiated learning centers can be a great tool. If you are looking for a way to separate the block center, reading corner and puppet center, you can use preschool storage units, play panels or preschool room dividers.
How can I make my students comfortable during preschool nap time?
When playtime is over and it's time for some rest, your students can enjoy a comfortable nap time while dozing on a selection of rest cots and mats. Cots are available in a variety of sizes, some of which can be stacked for storage when it's time to play again. Foldable mats make it easy to setup or cleanup the nap area in no time. Don't forget to section-off the rest area with a curtain so sleepy children won't be distracted by what is happening in the rest of the room.

With this broad collection from Russwood, you can get everything you need. Attractive wood finishes and classic designs will set a relaxed tone that enables students to stay on task. With budget-friendly prices and a great warranty, the bookshelves and computer tables are certainly worth the investment.
The obvious place to start when thinking about a library is the bookcases. Even in a modern day setting where computers are increasingly important in research and school work, most people still need books on occasion. Some volumes simply cannot be obtained online, and there are many people who still prefer to hold a physical book in their hands.
A library requires strong bookshelves that can accommodate volumes of various sizes. Russwood has beautiful wood bookcases that will give your literature and reference materials the respect they deserve. They are available in a choice of finishes with solid wood shelves that are designed to support the weight of books. Adjustable-height shelves are very important because they maximize bookcase capacity and accommodate volumes of various sizes. In a room that houses novels, non-fiction, encyclopedias and much more, having the flexibility to rearrange, catalog and organize a space is critical.
You can trust the Russwood library experts to bring you the ideal bookshelves. A modular design featuring starter and added pieces enables you to create a perfect fit in almost any room. This arrangement saves space and money, so you might just be able to squeeze in a few extra books. Shelving is available in both single- and double-faced units so you can create long rows of classics or a featured selections wall.
While bookcases are quite important, there are other arrangements of displays and shelving that can enhance your patrons' experience as well. Newspaper racks keep the daily post in good condition, so you can keep students up to speed on current events. Book displays are great for featuring volumes that are relevant to a certain time of year or school-wide theme.
Encourage students to look things up and understand on a deeper level with some well-placed dictionary stands. When commonly-used reference books are put in a prominent position, everyone will be more likely to use them. Rather than simply glossing over unfamiliar terms, dictionary stands make it easy to just walk over, verify a definition and continue reading.
Once you have the right spaces and shelving for books, you want to make sure that all of your patrons have an appropriate place to sit and study. The ideal is to provide a variety of workspace options so people can have quiet personal study spaces as well as appropriate venues for working on group projects or conducting research on the computer. Library tables are available in a selection of shapes and sizes for various configurations and personalized arrangements. Study carrels are also important to have for when students want to work independently. Library carrels make it easier for students to stay focused as they work, and provide convenient ways to keep books organized.
No modern library is complete without some appropriate computer furniture. Much of the research that students do for projects and papers is conducted on the computer, so you will need some computer tables in your study space. Choose from more open tables, or even computer carrels, which create a personal workspace for online research and essay composition.
When the patrons have been taken care of, and you have selected all of the Russwood library furniture that facilitates diligent study and provides an appropriate place for your book collection, don't forget about the librarians. Making sure that a library stays organized and operates efficiently is no easy task, especially when there are many volumes in one space. Having a functional circulation desk will make the whole check-out and organization process smoother for everyone.
Library circulation desks from Russwood come in a selection of configurations to provide all of the features you need while fitting in the allotted space. With the option for a book return with a matching book truck, patrons can easily return books. When it is time for reshelving, librarians can simply roll out the cart and begin the process, without having to take an extra step to transfer everything into a book cart. However, even with this arrangement, having a few book carts for organization and large-scale moves can still be quite helpful.
Russwood Library Furniture is designed to create a functional and inviting study space. With this appealing collection, you can get everything you need to outfit a study space with coordinated hues at budget-friendly prices. Choosing all of the necessary library furniture and determining the ideal arrangement can be quite a challenge.
