Rocker and Glider Chairs
Hertz Furniture's rocking chairs are designed to support both babies and caregivers. An inviting appearance and convenient features make them an excellent choice for any daycare center. We even have child-size models which enable little ones to calm themselves with relaxing motion.
Tired of spending all day walking back and forth to calm distressed babies and toddlers? Are your arms starting to ache from lifting and rocking little ones? A supportive rocking chair offers a great alternative to walking around and carrying growing children. Babies and toddlers get the same benefits of calming movements in a glider chair and caregivers can relax as well, rather than straining their backs and arms.
Do I need a rocker or glider for my daycare?
If you don't want to be carrying toddlers around all day, you will definitely want a glider chair. When children recognize that a rocking chair is a place to rest and calm down, it will become easier to help them relax. Gliders aren't only helpful for children who are upset, they can also be used to lull a child to sleep or feed a baby. If you want to have some quiet personal time with one or two of the toddlers in your daycare, you can cuddle up and read a book together in this cozy venue.
What kinds of chairs should I get for my childcare center?
Appropriately-sized furniture is beneficial in any early-childhood setting. Child- and toddler-sized rocking chairs will make a great addition to your classroom. They enable little ones to relax, calm down and take a quiet break in a comfortable personal space. Toddler rocking chairs encourage children to take initiative in finding their own ways to compose themselves and step out of overwhelming situations. Rocking chairs can also be a great accessory for your early-childhood learning center for imaginative play, where children might want to practice being the caregivers themselves by “soothing” dolls and animals.
How can I make my daycare center more homey?
Solid wood rocking chairs from Troutman Chair have a home-style appeal that is reminiscent of classic western decor. They come in adult, child and baby sizes so you can order matching models for all ages. Their solid oak construction provides the toughness you need for the everyday rigors of a busy daycare.
