Choosing Classsroom Tables & Chairs...


When purchasing classroom chairs and tables for your daycare, preschool, classroom, church, Montessori, or home-school environment the most important consideration is size.

Size IS everything!  Follow our guidelines below to assist you when choosing chairs.

CLASSROOM CHAIRS

2-3 year old toddler chairs- 8 or 9” seat height
3-4 year old preschool chairs-9 or 10” seat height
5 year old kindergarten chairs-11 or 12” seat height
6-7 year old first/second grade chairs-12 - 14” seat height
8+ years old 3rd grade and up-14 seat height

CLASSROOM TABLES

When choosing a table, consider the age group.  If one and two year olds will be using a table, consider an 11" adjusting table, and 6 - 8 inch chairs.  Also, consider that these children will come in different sizes, so a mixture of chair heights might be your answer.  As a rule of thumb, the top of a table should be 6 - 10 inches from the top of a chair seat.  This allows the child the ability to use the table top with greater ease.
