With back to school season in full swing, we’ve been focusing a lot on getting our big kids ready for their return to the halls of academia. It’s understandable, they need a lot of supplies and they’re on a strict deadline. Now that most of the kids are back, though, it’s time to focus on the little ones. We all know that a strong early childhood education sets a foundation for all the years to come, after all.
Here’s the good news: with a little time and effort, you can give your child a fantastic foundation at home. Even if you send your little one to preschool, like I did, having the right tools can go a long way towards reinforcing what they learn there.
I’m sharing a few of my favorite items from QVC for creating a preschool learning center at home. These items work perfectly in your child’s room, or you can set up a whole separate “school” room if you have the space.
Preschool Learning Center Essentials
A fun desk is the cornerstone of a great preschool learning center. With a great workspace, you can take your child’s learning journey just about anywhere. I love the farm desk with matching chair because it’s gender-neutral, spacious and oh-so fun! Plus, it’s about the size (width and height-wise) of a small bookshelf, so it doesn’t take up too much space in your child’s room.
Farm Desk With Chair: $102
The Crayola Fold N Go Art Studio is ideal if a bigger desk is out of the question, or if you want something you can put in another room of the house. The primary colors are bright and fun for preschoolers and the workspace is generous without overwhelming small arms. It folds up so you can store it out of the way when your child is done creating. The sections for art supplies encourages your kids to use their imaginations, while the little desk allows them to work on other projects as well- like work sheets and small crafts.
Crayola Fold N Go Art Studio: $49.99
I had a numbers & letters learning mat for Jacob when he was little, it was the best thing ever. It’s a giant puzzle, a protective play area and a way to teach kids the basics all in one. Put it together on their learning center floor and leave it, or use it as a giant puzzle do to together!
Kids are never too young to learn about our great, vast universe! Start with something a little closer to home with this fun inflatable solar system! I love it because it’s big and beautiful, and properly proportioned. Kid can see how much bigger Mars is than Earth. Since it hangs from your ceiling, it doesn’t take up real estate on your floor.
Want to really get your preschooler engaged in learning? Let them teach YOU! This Pretend & Play School Set comes with everything they need to feel like little teachers. It also helps get them ready for when they start Kindergarten by familiarizing them with concepts like hall passes, hand pointers and the dry erase boards.
Add in a few extras, like fun educational board games, crayons and craft supplies, and your preschool learning center is ready! When creating your space, creativity is the key word. Think about how your child can use items for both learning and playing, especially since preschoolers often learn through play.
