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!
Below you will find over 40+ IKEA products that are being used in Childcare Settings.
In Today's Economy many Daycare provider's are turning to IKEA to create inexpensive "Learning Spaces". IKEA carries several products to equip your home Daycare but today I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite items for your Dramatic Play Space.
1. Play Kitchen: The DUKTIG-play kitchen is the perfect size for those upcoming chefs. It's compact design makes it a perfect size for home childcare spaces.
2. Market Stand: Imagine the things the kids can sell at this SKYLTA Market Stand. This stand offers a perfect place to sell fruits and veggies, tickets to the Movies or Even the Circus!
3. Play Food: IKEA carries a variety of adorable, machine washable, felt food play sets. They offer a Vegetable Set, Shopping Basket Set, Fruit Basket Set, and Cupcake Stand.
4. Pretend Table & Chair Set: This LÄTT Table and Chair set is a steal for $24.99. It's Perfect for Tea Parties or to serve restaurant guests.
5. Play Cash Register: This sturdy Register is solar powered and comes with play money/credit cards as well.
6. Dolls: IKEA's LEKKAMRAT series has all your Doll needs covered (best of all no assembly required).
7. Tools: Finally for that budding builder, IKEA has them covered too with with their DUKTIG-Tools.
8. Doll Bed: You can put those Dolls to sleep in this adorable DUKTIG Doll Bed.

When it comes to using IKEA, it doesn't surprise me why their products are so popular with Home based Childcare Provider's. Their products are reasonably priced, take up a minimal amount of space, are durable, easily modified, and they have a large variety of products to meet the needs of Home Based Providers.
Unlike other childcare furniture that is meant for large centers, IKEA's furnishings are designed for the home. This makes the scale of their furniture just the right size for Home Based Provider's (especially those with shared spaces).
In addition to Children's Furniture they also offer a wide variety of Organizational Supplies, Kitchenware, Organizing Supplies, and Toys. They have products to design all kinds of Learning Spaces in your Home (Check out my previous post on using IKEA products to create a Dramatic Play Space for your Childcare Space Here).
If you are crafty you can even use IKEA products to create Light tables, Lego Tables, and Sensory Tables for your home at a reasonable cost.
Below you will find over 45+ Photos from our Daycare Spaces and Ideas Community FB Members who are using IKEA products in their beautiful spaces.
