Lockers for Kids

Sunday, March 25, 2012 Posted by Dina N

At my daughter's preschool, there are no kids lockers. There are small cubbies with pullout storage boxes. On the bottom, there's a hook for each child's coat and backpack.

It's not like preschoolers need a lot of space for their stuff. After all, they are no longer in diapers, are toilet trained, and there's no wipes, creams, or five extra pairs of underwear. Still, there are coats, hats and mittens in winter. Sunscreen and bug spray when the weather turns warmer. Art projects, "library" books, a change of clothes. Sometimes little hands don't have the dexterity - or the patience - to hang up jackets and backpacks on the same hook. So I see a few coats on the floor every day.

It would be easier if there were lockers for kids where everything had its place. I love the wooden locker and cubbie combos that are designed specifically for preschoolers. There are hooks for their jackets, cubbies with colorful plastic bins for storage, and space for shoes.  

I would not mind having some childrens lockers at my house... Would all of my kids' stuff magically get organized, I wonder? A mom can dream...

    We don't have coat closets in many of the houses in south Florida, so this would be a great idea for storing our outdoor wear and shoes!

    Great idea, not only for daycares or preschool. It would be nice to have one for our family. Not sure where we would put it, but it would be nice to have :)

    i agree there never seems to be enough room in the cubbies for the kids in daycare for the things they need every day. This is a great idea with places for each thing for your child.These would even be nice in your home in the hallway. keeps their things organized and all in one place.
