“Where’d you get that furniture in your classroom?” is a question we get asked. A lot! Here is a list of each piece of preschool classroom furniture and where it was purchased. Obviously, preschool furniture is a huge investment. We bought most of it in 2005 when we first opened Play to Learn Preschool, so I will try to link to pieces that are as close to what we have when the original pieces are no longer for sale.

We use this “Mobile Sand and Water Table” by Constructive Playthings as our main classroom sensory bin. It’s the perfect size for multiple preschoolers to play together. (Ours did not come with a lid like the one we linked here.)

Small Table & Chairs
This little pretend play table is 24×24. It’s paired with 4 “LifeTime” brand aqua chairs (all from Costco) to make the perfect little kitchen table for the dramatic play center.
These are 2005 original Lakeshore tables that we painted black to match our more modern color scheme. The chairs are from Costco.
We’ve had this set of kitchen furniture since 2005. It includes 4 “main” pieces and 3 connectors. We have one straight connector (that the microwave is sitting on in this photo) and two corner connectors. The manufacturer is Childcraft.
A very similar set of furniture is available here from School Specialty. It’s an investment, for sure, but should be a staple for every preschool and kindergarten classroom.
This is also a 2005 original piece of classroom furniture by Childcraft. The front has space for 4 students to work, with plenty of storage underneath. The back has a desk for 2 students to do seated art. It doesn’t appear that this exact furniture is available, so we linked something similar.
This art center was actually donated to our classroom. (Score!!) It is the perfect way to store all of the paper, clipboards, and art supplies that we need for our art area.

This teaching easel actually predates Play to Learn’s start in 2005! It has a large whiteboard, with a ledge for big books. The back has dowel rods that are perfect for storage. We’ve linked a very similar easel from School Specialty.
Circle Time Rug
We purchased this 9′ beautiful round rug from Lakeshore a few years ago when we began to change our color scheme from bright rainbow to light blues and purples. It has plenty of space for all of our students to sit for circle time. The quality is excellent and the edges don’t roll up.
Interactive Bulletin Board
This is an old-fashioned, basic cork bulletin board that is covered with thick white fabric. We staple activities to it and use either pushpins, felt, or velcro to make the activities.
The size is 48″x36″.

Magnetic White Board
This is another great way to utilize vertical space. Students can do magnetic activities (like these color sorting buckets) or use dry erase markers to color on the board.
Magnetic white boards are readily available at Costco, office supply stores, or online here.
The size is 36″x24″.
