Kindergarten tables and chairs are furniture that children have the most contact with. The pros and cons of kindergarten tables and chairs are directly related to the physical health of children and affect the cultivation of children's correct sitting posture and learning efficiency.
So today we will learn about the key points in the purchase of kindergarten tables and chairs.
1. The material is safe, non-toxic and healthy
Kindergarten children have relatively weak self-protection awareness and resistance. Poor quality kindergarten furniture will directly threaten their safety and health. Therefore, in recent years, the importance of environmental safety and the impact of the environment on children has been listed as a necessary condition by kindergartens. After all, children are easily disturbed during the growth process, which affects their health and development.
When buying children’s tables and chairs, kindergartens must abandon those kindergarten tables and chairs made of inferior plastic materials and synthetic boards that use a lot of adhesives.
And should choose kindergarten tables and chairs made of environmentally friendly plastic materials or solid wood. In addition, it is best to choose kindergarten tables and chairs with environmentally friendly water-based paint and wood wax oil on the surface.
2. Avoid sharp edge surfaces
All corners of the kindergarten table should be trimmed and rounded at the four corners to prevent children from bumping or scratching when entering or leaving the table edge.
The passivated table edge can minimize damage, and it is not easy to cause open wounds even if accidentally bumped. All corners of kindergarten chairs also need to be rounded and passivated.
3. The height design should be reasonable
Due to the limited height of children, it is reasonable to design kindergarten tables and chairs. Children of different ages should prepare tables and chairs of different heights in order to provide better conditions for children to learn.
And children should not be allowed to develop bad habits that affect the normal growth of their bodies because their bodies are too high or too short, only a reasonable height design can facilitate learning and eliminate all kinds of bad development.
4. The anti-slip effect is good and stable
The table legs have an anti-slip design, which can provide good anti-slip and stability even on different ground materials, and it is not easy for objects on the table to fall due to a slight collision.
The legs of the chair must have a non-slip design. The legs of the chair that can slide with rollers are not suitable for children and will increase the probability of children falling.
Improper height, distance and posture of tables and chairs may lead to myopia, hunched back and even scoliosis. Unsuitable children's desks and chairs will cause children to have poor sitting postures and cause irreversible damage to children's health unknowingly.
At the same time, the child is not sitting comfortably, which will cause the child to be very tired and unable to concentrate.
Avoid direct sunlight on children's tables and chairs. When high-temperature objects are on the furniture, they must be placed under heat-insulating cushions to avoid affecting their service life.
The desk should be placed in a well-lit place. If the children's desk and chair are placed sideways, the light should come from the left side. Children's tables and chairs should be kept as few as possible and placed against the wall to expand children's activity space.
Kindergarten tables and chairs are directly related to children's safety and health, and also affect children's learning and life. Kindergartens must strictly control the purchase of kindergarten tables and chairs. Do not try to buy low-quality kindergarten tables and chairs cheaply. You must pay attention to the quality of the tables and chairs.
