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!
