Below you can find some great Library & Reading Spaces from Childcare Providers in our Daycare Spaces and Ideas Community, as well as recommended items to add to your space based on the ages you care for.
This fun Library area belongs to Nicki of Mrs. B's Childcare. I love the pop of color she added to her book holders. These front facing holders make great use of narrow spaces. They also allow you to take advantage of your vertical spaces. You can store your "For big hands only" books up high, and your Board books in the lowest Shelf.
Adrienne from Seed Sprout and Bloom Childcare provides such a comfy place for sitting down to read. I like she transformed this corner into a cozy reading space by using pillows and an Infant Mattress.
The LOVA Leaf Canopy from IKEA is also a great touch.
You don't need a huge amount of space to create a warm and welcoming reading area.
This cozy reading area belongs to Babyzone Daycare. She provides the children with comfy pillows and accessible front facing books.
I like how Angie from The Thoughtful Spot Daycare has built her reading area into this cozy closet.
This space is a great little getaway from the busy action.
This reading space belongs to Marlisa from All about Kids. The front facing gutter shelving allows the books to be accessible to young children with minimal space being used. In addition to being adorable-The alphabet tree is a wonderful way to include literacy in this space.
I think it's important for children to have access to different types of literacy materials.
I love how Tara of Little Learners Daycare and Preschool has incorporated a
special place in her Reading area for Audio Books.
Heather from Heather's Helping Hands Childcare included books about tools and vehicles in her Construction and Transportation area.
You can also include Literacy in your Dramatic Play area by adding Cook Books, and phone books
to your Space.
I think these benches at Mrs. Felecia's Playhouse reading area are so adorable! What a fun place
to sit and read with a friend.
Cheri Langlois used front facing picture ledges from IKEA to create her Library Area.
The bright Artwork and Lighting make this look like a Gallery.
What a fun way to showcase books!
Candasa Crumb made this reading space out of a converted crib.
She replaced all of the weight bearing screws with 3 inch screws, took out the base, added three 2 x 4s across the width of the seating area, then topped it with 1/2 inch plywood and a fluffy stuffed comforter that easily fits in the washer and dryer.
Sheena Wheeler of Building Blocks Family Childcare has so many home-like touches in her Library Space. I love the little sofa and chair set and the side table. She also incorporates the Children's Artwork and Photos in this space-another great way to encourage Language opportunities.
What a welcoming corner Amanda of Tiny Tots Preschool has set up in her space. Her front facing picture ledges and IKEA MYSIG canopy showcase the importance of books in this space. Her cozy rug, and her FJÄDERMOLN Cloud pillows make this a cozy space for curling up with a good book.
This Reading "Hideaway" belongs to Nikkolette Washington ofNik-Nak's Daycare The sheer panels add privacy but still allow you to view the children easily. She added inspiring quotes from Dr. Suess as well as colorful decor.
