Choosing properly sized desks and chairs for children can seem a bit tricky at first. But in fact, children are more likely to pay attention and are more open to learning if they are comfortable during class. You can positively influence the overall learning environment in your classroom by choosing desks and chairs that are the right size for the children in your care. Figuring this out can be confusing and a little frustrating, which is why we found some simple guidelines for you to remember as you choose desks and chairs for your classroom.
Chairs are available in a variety of sizes, designs, materials, and finishes. Be sure to pick chairs that will be comfortable for children to sit in while also complementing the other furniture in your classroom. The ideal desk height for a child is best determined when there's a chair that's ideal for her size, since the desk and chair go together. Her feet should rest comfortably on the ground when seated with her back against the chair back. The angle of the knees should be approximately 90 degrees for a properly sized chair.
Appropriate chair seat height is often based on children's age, but you should also research any state licensing or accreditation requirements on chair size you may have to meet.
The general rule for desks in nursery school and education classrooms is the space between the seat of the chair and the underside of the desk should be 7-8 inches. That's just the right amount of space for children to be able to fit their legs under the table. Besides, when a child presses her bent arm against the edge of the desk, her elbow and the desk's edge should be within a couple of inches of one another. In other words, her arms should also be able to rest comfortably on the desk.
