Last fall we took the leap and moved to a new home! We love all the space we now have, including a preschool room for my kiddos and the kids I watch during the day. When we first moved in, the preschool room was kinda put together quickly. But, over break I got a chance to make it more of what I had envisioned.
Here is half of the room. The little wood table and chair set was made by my late grandpa. I love having it as a part of everyday routines! That door you see walks out to the backyard with a swingset :)
Our circle time area is over in the corner. I tried my best to break up this large space into several different smaller areas.
A view from the circle time area. The area with the foam mats is the baby area. We also have a storage closet and a bathroom.
This center changes often- right now it has dress up clothes and tea table along side the kitchen.
Lots of different blocks & balls found in the colored tubs.
I love this book holder (found at Target several years back). Our sensory tub is just a regular tub. My hubby built it up off the ground with PVC pipe (more on that later) so the little ones couldn't access it.
I will exchange different mediums and material at the easel throughout the year. The other side of the easel is a chalkboard. I bought special pencil pouches to put crayons, markers, scissors and chalk in. This keeps it from getting in the hands of the babies (who are now crawling)!!
Our tub toys are just tubs with lots of different toys to choose from. All tubs have labels with pictures of what goes in the tub. Makes clean up time a dream!!
My three year old and the four year old in my care will be participating in workstations (more on that to come).
Here is an area just for the sweet little ones. We hung a mirror that they can pull up to and see themselves. They have three baskets of various toys and books as well. The babies are crawling their way out of this area, but it is great to have a place to have baby story and song time (since our circle time area is just a haven for pulling and yanking learning materials off the wall)
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! I am very excited about our new space!
