Early childhood education is placing a lot of emphasis on finding ways to bring nature indoors. Since it’s not feasible for most schools to transform themselves into a forest school where classes are held outdoors, many are finding the solution lies in redesigning and redecorating their classrooms. These simulated, nature-inspired environments often feature flexible seating and other furniture designed to the reduce stress levels children experience. Additionally, researchers say bringing the outdoors inside helps kids with their attention span, stimulates creativity, and contributes to emotional well-being.

Children’s Factory is always striving to provide what we call “FUNctional” furniture for children. This term places the emphasis on fun, while not forgetting the function. Cube Chairs can be used in 3 ways. On one side the seat is 6”H. Flip it over, and the chair has a 9” seat height. Turn it on its side, and the chair becomes a table surface for kids to use while drawing, eating a snack, or participating in virtually any activity. The fun colors keep kids engaged in lessons. Kids of varying sizes will all find comfort sitting in these chairs.
